Caption: The reticle
of the Cronus uses ranging marks designed to work with the IPSC targets commonly found on PRS and 3-Gun courses.

Suggested retail for the Magnus 1.510x42 starts at $1,799, with some reticle
options boosting the price.
Learning how to adjust your magnification ring to "calibrate" this type of reticle
to your bullet's ballistic curve is essential.
