Leupold continues to expand reticle options for the Mark 5HD riflescope line. I’ve been a big fan of the highly touted Mark 5HD. I’ve been running it for the better part of two years. The PR2 promises to reduce reticle clutter and simplifying hold off, and speed up follow-up shots. If that’s the case sign me up. 

Developed with input from the country’s top competitors and professional shooters, the PR2 reticles are specifically designed for long range speed and precision. Two styles are soon to be available: the PR2-MIL and the PR2-MOA. They will be carried in Leupold’s Mark 5HD line, in both a 5-25x and 7-35x configuration. 

“The Mark 5HD is the highest-performing long-range riflescope on the competitive circuit–with the PR2 reticle, we set out to design the perfect reticle to pair with it for precision shooting,” said John Snodgrass, Tactical Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “We spent months working with some of the nation’s top competitive shooters, and the end result is a reticle solution that’s going to reduce your clutter, simplify your shooting process, and honestly improve your long-range performance, with ease.” 

Leupold’s Mark 5HD riflescope, meanwhile, has been crafted to redefine accuracy, precision, and optical performance for long-range shooters. The new PR2 reticles will both be available in either a 5-25x56 or a 7-35x56. Pick one up and you’ll feel the difference: it’s up to 20 ounces lighter than other scopes in its class. Get behind one and you’ll see the difference, from its superior edge-to-edge clarity to its extreme low-light performance. With three revolutions of elevation adjustment, the Mark 5HD was made to max out the performance of the latest long range rifles and ammunition. 

The Mark 5HD features Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which offers unmatched image quality that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions, industry leading glare reduction for a clear image in harsh, direct light, and the resolution and clarity that professional guides and shooters demand in the field. 

Like all Leupold riflescopes and red dots, the Mark 5HD is waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life. It is proudly manufactured in Leupold’s Beaverton, Ore. factory. For more information on Leupold products, please visit Leupold.com.
