This 6-30x56mm PLX5 Platinum series scope is equipped with the first focal plane DEKA AMS MIL reticle, an updated and modernized version of the combat proven MIL-DOT reticle still in use by military forces today. This remarkably simple reticle features clear 0.1 MIL subtensions with a full 5 MILS of holds in any direction for easy ranging and hold overs at distant targets. For exceptional precision, the center chevron is 0.2 MILs wide and tall, while providing an infinitely small aiming point. Compatible with any caliber, the DEKA Advanced MIL System reticle is ideal for shooters who want a stripped down, clutter-free reticle with the full capability of military proven MIL ranging.
Our advanced reticle designs promote set-and-forget zeroing, but for those who prefer to count their clicks, the Japanese made platinum series features tactile, audible, and -- more importantly -- precise and repeatable 0.1 MIL click adjustments. Once zero has been achieved, the finger-adjustable turrets can be easily reset to 0 as well, allowing future adjustments to be readily tracked. To protect your zero, the turrets are locking. Pull out on the turrets to make your adjustments, push in to lock them down and ensure bumps on the range or in a bag won’t throw off your zero.
Whether you're looking for a workhorse optic for tactical shooting, competition, or out on your next hunt, the uncompromising clarity and quality of our PLX5 Platinum may be exactly what you're looking for. These remarkable precision scopes will help you dominate from mid-range to beyond the 1,000-yard line. To top it off, this fantastic scope is covered by our lifetime warranty.
Ratings & Reviews
Great glass, but not what I prefer compared to ladder/ACSS reticle
Wife bought me this scope after hearing me carry on about the DEKA reticle for months. After getting the scope I think I may have made a mistake. The DEKA is fine, don't get me wrong. However, I think I have gotten so used to the ACSS reticles, I feel more "stable" with the ACSS reticles. I'm a newer shooter, so that may play into this. But I really wish I would have waited and got the new Athena BPR MIL Reticle. I think it would work so much better on the AR-10 6.5 Creedmoor platform it's mounted to. I am taking off one star as in sub 35F temps the illumination has stopped working on 2 occasions. I have tried 3 different batteries and both had same issue. I bought a new set/batch of batteries so I will have to see how this goes. Not sure if the warranty will apply for me as my wife got this on Ebay new in box, but from a private seller. I may get to test PA's warranty.
<br>From PA: If you're having trouble with your PA scope, we'll be happy to take care of it, regardless of where you purchased it from.
An awesome value ! (maybe best value in the industry)
honest review...This scope replaced a NF SHV f1, The F1 has much better turrets and feel. Thats where it ends, The PA Plat has much better glass, better illumination, better magnification, better zero stop, MUCH better reticle and still tracks well, although a bit squishy. Great company, great warranty, great value! The only other con is the scope is very heavy. All and all, you would be hard pressed to find a better value. buy it!
Best scope for the money period
Love it. On par with Nightforce NXS, Sig Tango 6 and Vortex Razor HD gen 2. Crisp turrets, smooth magnification and focus adjustments. Won 2nd at my 1st outing with it on my Bergara 6.5cm 200-1300 yards. Deka mil reticle was a little different at first but buy the time I had it zeroed I loved it. Will buy another for my 338LM when I get one.
