A reticle, or reticule (from Latin reticulum, meaning 'net'), also known as a graticule (from Latin craticula, meaning 'gridiron'), is a net of fine lines or fibers in the eyepiece of a sighting device, such as a telescope, a telescopic sight, a microscope, or the screen of an oscilloscope. Today, engraved lines or embedded fibers may be replaced by a computer-generated image superimposed on a screen or eyepiece. Both terms may be used to describe any set of lines used for optical measurement, but in modern use reticle is most commonly used for gunsights and such, while graticule is more widely used for the covers of oscilloscopes and similar roles.
There are many variations of reticles; this article concerns itself mainly with a simple reticle: crosshairs. Crosshairs are most commonly represented as intersecting lines in the shape of a cross, "+", though many variations exist, including dots, posts, circles, scales, chevrons, or a combination of these. Most commonly associated with telescopic sights for aiming firearms, crosshairs are also common in optical instruments used for astronomy and surveying, and are also popular in graphical user interfaces as a precision pointer. The reticle is said to have been invented by Robert Hooke, and dates to the 17th century. Another candidate as inventor is the amateur astronomer William Gascoigne, who predated Hooke.
SIghtmark CoreTX 8.5-25x50MR scope
Awesome scope, better glass than the Vortex (at same price point)
Had this on an AR and took a couple trips to the range. No problems, excellent scope.... my only beef is that all my other scopes are in MILS and this is MOA.
Gets confusing at times.

This scope could pass as new, but I did take the sticker off. Mounted only once before I quickly realized that it was way too much magnification to my needs. Comes with box and papers. The scope is in excellent condition. Included are Nikon lens caps.
$300 picked up from Clackamas.
Barely used (2 shooting trips) and mounted carefully with proper torque so as to not scratch the tube. Near perfect condition. Bought to get into precision rifle shooting comps. That never happened and now I have no time for it. Already sold the rifle, now selling the optic.
I have 2...
In excellent condition, like new, no box. I have 3 of these excellent .22 scopes. The turrets on this model really stand out. Clarity and build quality is excellent.
The last 3 pictures are for reference only. Sale is for the Nikon scope only.
$110 picked up from Clackamas. $120 shipped!
Was reading a review on a scope I have coming, the Sightron STAC 4-20x50 MOA. As the name would imply, this has a MOA reticle, with spacing between hash marks or 2 MOA at max power. At minimum power, that spacing is 10 MOA. But here's the real reason for this post.
A statement was made in...

Selling a leupold vx freedom 1.5-4x20mm with the less common AR ballistic reticle and 1/10 mil adjustments. In great shape, box shows what the reticle is and is included. I had this on my 300 blk but I am going with a red dot instead of a LPVO. Also includes the leupold mark 2 IMS AR...
Awesome scope. I love it, just don't need it because I already have a VXR 3-9 and a VXR 1-4.
I got this one in a trade. Looks very good. Functions perfectly. Minimal if any wear visible. I really had to look hard just to find ring marks. Glass is great. Illumination is great. Comes...
Selling a Swarovski Z6 3-18x50 scope that I purchased earlier this year and mounted on a Remington 700, sighted it in and there it sat, never to go hunting.. Rifle will be sold separately later and the scope is ready to go with the box and all the paperwork. Winding down my hunting...
