The reticles are compatible with the free Hawke BRC software, designed to calculate all the aim points to your rifles trajectory.
The reticles are etched on glass. This allows a fully floating design where the hollow posts do not reach the edge of the FOV, and the whole reticle can be fully illuminated. The hollow bars are calibrated for .2 Mil spacing and whole Mil spacing. The 10x reticle has true mil spacing at 10x.

Hawke Panorama 4-12x50AO 1/2 Mil Dot
June 17, 2012
The scope is clear and crisp at least commensurate with the price. The thin etched glass reticle is great and I like the 1/2 mil dot arrangement. I have only used the scope out to 50 yards and the yardage indicated on the front adjustable objective matches actual yardage precisely. Overall real nice scope for the money.
Pros:Clear, etched glass reticle, 1/2 mil dot, unobtrusive battery compartment, 50mm objective still uses medium height mounts with good clearance on my Air Arms.
Cons:Used on a Air Arms S500E, BKL double strap mounts do not provide enough rearward mounting space on scope tube. This is due to fairly compact length and a short eye relief (3.2") I have ordered single strap medium height BKL mounts, which will be ideal for this particular setup.
