Horus Vision – Top 3 Things Every Sniper Must Have – SHOT Show 2017

I owe a great debt to Mr. Hodnett of Accuracy First/Horus Vision. He taught me things about long range that I would have thought impossible.

There is a lot going on here with Horus Vision Reticles and Accuracy First methodology, more than we can address in our SHOT Show round up.

If some of the dialogue in the video sounded like Greek, have no fear, Clay has you covered. This year, he plans on doing a series of articles on the ins and outs of long range shooting. Stay tuned.

The biggest news isn’t mentioned in this video, but it is public knowledge now. Ray Dennis Group, owner of Night Force Optics, has purchased Horus Vision. This means Horus reticles should be easier than ever to get in your favorite scopes in the near future.

As the year goes on, part of my job at GunsAmerica will be educating readers on long range shooting. All the madness in that video that may have sounded like gibberish if you aren’t one of the initiated will make a lot more sense.

We will go over scope levels and ballistic computers and how to buy them. We will also cover scope selection, and how to maximize the equipment you have.

As Todd says, “Long range isn’t hard anymore, it is within the reach of any rifleman willing to learn.” The old standard of a 1000-yard shot is child’s play with modern equipment. And I don’t mean magnum calibers.

    Anything to do with Ray Dennis? No thanks. He is in patent infringement with Leupold. Was successfully sued by Jeff Huber last year. Interesting timing of sale from Horus. Makes an interesting google search!

    My Barrett, M82-A1, had a Swarovski scope with what was called a Christmas tree reticle 20 years ago.

    SO…Horus finally comes to market with a knock off of a reticle that has been popular in Vortex, Athlon and others….NOW because this is a Horus \”press release\”….THEY are getting credit for this design?

      My Vortex has that exact reticle…

      Not news. Just another disappointing paid by the word “article”, or maybe it’s “paid by the booth” at Shot Show..?

      you got your timelines backward. Horus drew this first style of reticle back in about 2002, and it is patented. go check the names on the patent. Vortex and others have tried to copy it, and most of the high end scope companies license it, but it is a Horus design. To name but a few, Night Force, Steiner, Leupold, Bushnell, US Optics, and Schmidt & Bender, all have a Horus Reticle option.

      The Horus reticle is a patented grid system that has been in use for over a decade. If you have anything better than a mil dot, you can thank Horus. Introducing new product lines is how they keep their customers happy. If you love this type of reticle, you should look at what all they have to offer.

      Knowledge is power.
