Working with experts from FinnAccuracy
FinnAccuracy’s MSR2 reticle is now available on Steiner Defense‘s M5Xi 5-25x56mm scope.
The M5Xi is a military grade sniper scope, crafted entirely in Germany, hewn from the finest materials and featuring world-class engineering. This combination allows the M5Xi to provide great long-range viewing and delivery of accurate fire at extreme distances. Because it is assembled to strict military specifications, it can handle the rigors of combat in some of the harshest climates around the globe, delivering outstanding clarity even in low-light conditions.
While the M5Xi’s rugged effectiveness comes standard, it still remains customisable as shooters may select their preferred reticle. New to 2018, Steiner is excited to announce they are exclusively offering the MSR2 Reticle in the M5Xi 5-5x56mm riflescope.
FinnAccuracy set out in 2009 with a goal to fill the needs of practicality, versatility and accuracy for a wide range of long-distance shooters: the Multipurpose Sniper Reticle (MSR). The reticle provided shooters with an array of options allowing them to deliver fire and quickly correct based upon feedback. According to the FinnAccuracy webpage, the MSR had a “clean overall look with separate areas for precise but simple multitasking.”
Different features of the MSR2 become more focal as the magnification increases. Some of the new enhancements are as follows: At lower powers of magnification, (3x-5x) the reticle can now be used for spotting and general observation, but also for taking up close shots if needed; in the midrange powers of 10x-15x, the MSR2 gives you an excellent field of view and the 400m-1300m instant ranging scale becomes more usable.
This allows shooters to contend with mirage or engage moving targets with ease. The larger field of view also allow for more aiming references for ELR and ULR.
At powers of 15x-20x the details of the centre area (such as the centre cross) become more of a focal point as the scope is zoomed in. This is done while still providing a clean “workspace.”
At 25x and up, the field of view narrows considerably, limiting usage the centre of the reticle. However, an illuminated centre cross and centre aiming dot feature heavily at this magnification.
The MSR2 is the result of nearly two years in development. The reticle offers critical tools at nearly any distance a shooter might encounter—from mundane to extreme. Whether it is across the field or across a desert, the MSR2 will provide the detail and accuracy one needs.
