I've thought about it, but I am a little concerned about making it a little too large. How about I extend the dots to 4.5 mrad at 10, 11 and 12 mrad of holdover and the number will sit at 5 mrad mark?The reticle should be called the “Ilya-47”.
I get 5 mil wind holds out here all the time at 10 mil plus windage. Not sure if that’s a feature that can be requested.
Looks great to me. Now just push for a "H" version too with a donut of death around the center and all will be right with the world.I've thought about it, but I am a little concerned about making it a little too large.

The reticle as it is drawn reflects how I shoot and if the wind is that significant I dial elevation and use the primary horizontal for wind. Different folks, different strokes.
I've always liked Meopta scopes and with Optika 6, I saw a way to add a reticle I like into a sub-$1k scope, so I jumped on it. Meopta knows how to build high quality optomechanical designs.This is a fantastic reticle, Ilya, thanks for getting this going and making this a viable scope.
There will be simpler reticles for SFP scopes. Meopta already has those.I really hope they come out with some nice simple reticles in the lower powers in SFP for the people that like to hunt varmints and small game. It seems the scope companies cater these days to FFP scopes with busy reticles for the long distance crowd. It really is hard to find something decent anymore these days. I have a Vortex hunter in the BDC G4 and for the life of me can not believe they quit making it. It is just about the perfect reticle and if it had the dot illuminated every rifle I have would have 1 on it. I have 2 Meoptas and love them. I looked at some of the prices out at Euro Optics that they have listed. If they have some nice simple reticles for the hunters and the same decent glass it almost seems to good to be true. If they get it right they will not be able to keep them on the shelf.
It is a new optical system, so I do not know for sure where it lands. It is priced like a MeoPro, so I would expect it to be in that ballpark, but we'll know for sure when the scope gets here.Ilya, I feel like I read it somewhere, but now I'm second guessing myself- is the optika-6 glass basically the same as the meo-pro, not the meostar?
Pretty positive it's only elevation. The 4.5-27 prototype sample I have is only elevation. That' s also how it reads in the catalog and on the website. I personally think if you are going to do one, do both. But I'm not an engineer....just a lowly sales guy.And only the elevation locks in the 27&30x? Or does the windage lock to? Because locking elevation I could care less about, windage is the one that should lock.
1-6x24...low power and small diameter. Needs a CQB reticle. Meaning a POA/POI or "point blank" reticle. A circle the size of your intended target out the max distance you expect to shoot at 1X works well. If the circle is inside the target, pull the trigger, if outside, then adjust for drop. The drop is stadia spaced in mil or moa out to as far as 1k. meaning if you need ten mil (a standard 7.62) to get to 1k, then that's what you have from the crosshair down. The circle can also be a guide for wind.First, a disclaimer: I do not work for Meopta and do not have any decision power as far as which reticles they will use. However, they people I know at Meopta are willing to take market feedback into consideration, so here is a list of Optika 6 scopes from their website. Tell me which reticle would you want in which scope.
Here are the rules: you get to pick one reticle only for each scope. If this configuration is not of interest to you personally, skip it.
Basically, here is what I am curious about: if a particular configuration is appealing to you, what reticle would make you want to buy it?
I think the tree reticle I designed for them should be out this summer, but the exact dates I do not know. Same for the name. The drawing I gave them has a name, but I do not know if they will use it.Any update on when this reticle will be available? Or what it will be called?
Thanks for the update! I’ll be home in June and was kinda hoping it would be out by then. Might have to wait till my November vacation.I think the tree reticle I designed for them should be out this summer, but the exact dates I do not know. Same for the name.

I can't hit like fast enough or enough times. !!! I own a lot of high end scopes but they all compromise on reticles.
Don't thank me. That was all @koshkin. I threw out some suggestions in the initial thread that happened to make it in there, like .5 floating wind dots, floating center and .2 hashes, but most of those are standard wants nowadays. I really like how he handled the .5 markers on the x and y. He is the creator and deserves all the credit. Now, if I could just get the 3-18 model with a doughnut around the center I could finally trade off my last LRHSi.
The 3-18's will be cappedHighly interested in a 3-18 ffp to compare to my Zeiss v4
Almost a total lock on a pair of 8x42s at that price
I’ll add I think it would be a really really good option to have locking windage on an exposed turret. I’m simply not going to carry an exposed windage into the field on a hunt.
Ah, gotcha, and...agreed. Personally I like the locking windage on most everything except maybe a .22 trainer or something, but I will be OK on my personal hunting rifles as I usually don't go above 18 on the scope and rarely above 10 power in actual use.Right, which is why I’m interested in that one. Should have clarified I meant the upper tiers 4.5-27 and 5-30
I made several reticle designs for Meopta, including for the 3-18x and that included some rapid aiming features. We'll see if they use it.Don't thank me. That was all @koshkin.

I do not remember the exact specs, but the reason 5-30x sits in a 34mm tube is to get extra adjustment range. 4.5-27x has less adjustment.How much elevation adjustment were y’all thinking for the 4.5-27 and 5-30?
We have been working closely with Meopta to assure that we will have a healthy supply of these scopes as soon as they become available. We are accepting pre-orders for those that are interested. Please give us a call to arrange this.
