BEAVERTON, Ore. - Leupold® Tactical Optics now offers its Mark 4® 1.5-5x20mm MR/T® riflescope with its new front focal plane 300 Blackout reticle. Designed to meet the dynamic needs of military, law enforcement and competitive shooters, this new Mark 4 blends speed, precision and accuracy with the flexibility of the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge.
"Leupold Tactical Optics is always looking for ways to improve the optics we put into the hands of our military, law enforcement and competition shooters," said Kevin Trepa, vice president, tactical division for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "One of the latest advancements has been the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge, and we want to ensure operators have premium riflescopes to pair with this new round."
The illuminated front focal plane reticle allows for precision aiming at lower power settings and intuitive ranging at higher powers. Seven intensity settings feature an off position between each numbered brightness mark to help extend battery life and ensure that illumination is never more than one click away.
From point-blank range to beyond 700 yards, the Mark 4 1.5-2x20mm MR/T provides the rugged flexibility sought by both combat and action rifle shooters. With a twist of the magnification dial, operators can quickly transition between instinctive, short-range snap shots and precision long-range shots.
Developed in conjunction with Advanced Armament Corporation®, the new 300 Blackout reticle is calibrated for use with both subsonic and supersonic loadings of the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge. This .30-caliber cartridge delivers enhanced suppressed knockdown energy when compared to pistol caliber carbines. In its supersonic loadings, the .300 AAC Blackout has proven to be a solid hunting cartridge for game up to whitetail deer.
300 Blackout Reticle Available in Leupold® Mark 4® 1.5-5x20mm MR/T® Leupold's Xtended Twilight Lens System™ delivers superior light transmission and edge-to-edge image clarity throughout the entire zoom range. DiamondCoat 2™ further enhances light transmission and provides scratch resistance that exceeds mil-specs.
