Developed by the military, the Mil-Dot reticle allows the sniper to efficiently estimate range to target. It is the most popular reticle design for law enforcement use.

Nightforce has improved upon older mil-dot styles with the creation of see-through round dots placed on the vertical and horizontal cross lines that serve as reference points. All four posts can also be seen through. Instead of solid dots and posts that can obscure the target, the Nightforce design allows the sniper to more accurately and quickly estimate range to target.

The dots are spaced precisely 1 mil apart, representing 3.6 inches at 100 yards at specified power. The reticle is etched on precision multi-coated compound glass, eliminating possible breakage and misalignment.

Nightforce illumination technology allows the reticle to glow red, and
it can be adjusted across a range of intensities. This insures excellent reticle contrast in low light when illuminated, or a well-defined black reticle when not illuminated.
