Athena BPR is perfect for discerning long range shooters!


I have had the pleasure to use many many different grid pattern reticles over the years and this Athena BPR is designed very smart. For shooters who desire both the advantages of ballistic hold over dots as well as a relatively clear observation of the impact area, this is a great option. The dots in this scope are sized optimally for the discerning long range precision shooter who doesnt like too much clutter in the reticle. The area immediately around the chevron aiming point is nice and clean with .2 MRAD dot spacing for clean shot observation.

Check out the video below for some footage of how to use this reticle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk1BF77B1pQ&t=1084s

6-30 platinum Athena BPR


This scope has everything you need wether it’s hunting, competition or range days. Durable scope with great clarity and solid turrets. The Athena reticle really sets it apart. It is very user friendly with things like auto range finder built in. It also has sub tensions of .1 for very accurate ranging. The open reticle allows you to see your impacts and make accurate adjustments. We all miss sometimes. It beats everything in its class especially on the wallet. I’ve hunted, been in combat and taught at a premier sniper school, I Love this scope and would recommend it to anyone. Math doesn’t lie and it’s all built into this reticle.

The Athena MIL BPR meets and exceeds expectaitons.


I upgraded from the Primary Arms R-Grid 2B to the Athena. Ever since I saw the Athena reticle, I was hooked. For my purposes shooting NRL22 and ELR with 22LR, the Athena MIL BPR meets all my requirements. The 6-30 variable power and 56mm objective gives you the clarity and range to meet any requirement you may have. I like the 0.1 MIL subtensions to range with and the 0.2 MIL dots that fill in the dead space of the R-Grid for close holdovers. The fine lines and dots, as well as, the sharp chevron makes precision shots simple. The only downside for my purposes is the 35yd minimum parallax adjustment. I was worried it wouldn't focus enough for the 25yd shots. However, in today's match I was able to make easy work of 0.25" targets at 25yds. The Athena reticle is everything I hoped it would be and more. The clarity of the glass, the sharpness of the reticle, the positive dial adjustment clicks, and the zero stop features make this scope a serious option for the serious shooter.

This Scope Gained my Respect


At my first introduction to the Platinum Scope, I had the opportunity to actually get behind it and engage some steel targets out to distance,1000, 1200 and yes that awesome 1760 yards. A few close friends who are huge fans of the NF ATACR, like me got behind it and sent rounds down range became fans of the scope. Combined 20 MOA Rail and 20 MOA Mount and you will never run out of elevation. I especially love the ease of setting the zero stop. Almost self explanatory. Subtensions are set to help you follow the trace and at distance, you can spot your own impacts. How Primary Arms can deliver this scope at the price point that they do, and That was my first question. I don't know but don't let the price fool you into thinking this scope is a lesser optic because it's not. I'm not disappointed, as a matter of fact I'm ecstatic and it's become quite the bragging point with my friends who now want this scope. That's my two cents. It's earned my respect.

Great scope if only

Love the scope glass is great turrets track well The athena retical is easy to use especially at higher powers I would have given it 5 stars but I found while the vertical adjustment has a zero stop there is no lock on the turrets my 1-8 and many other you have to pull up then turn to adjust push down to lock not these

Top Tier Scope


An amazing quality scope that is built like a tank with a very well thought out reticle. This scope is on par with $2,000-$3,000 scopes!!!

Surprisingly nice scope.


I purchased the PLX5 scope with the Athena reticle to put on a “low-ER cost” 6.5 CM I am building. The optic is much nicer than I expected. Glass is great! Very slight edge fuzzing at 30! On par with my other higher end optics. The illumination is really nice in low light, and has a good range of useable settings. Turrets are nice, 10 mils per rev, solid zero stop. Nice positive clicks. They are not very audible, if that’s something you can’t live without. All I care about is tracking accuracy and this scope is plenty acceptable. Great value for this glass.

Very nice so far

Just zeroed on a Savage 110BA 338LM. Really do like this scope.

Almost great


This scope is a pretty nice scope..For the Ranging Reticle for 6.5 CM & 224 Valkyrie its damn nice to hit steel from 100 yards to 1,000 yards with little effort.
With that said the glass could be better,and since their $499.00 3-18 x50 Apollo 6.5 CM/224 Valkyrie has Pull /Push Locking Turrets ,a reasonable person would only deduct that their Tier One PLX 6-30x56 Apollo would also have LOCKING TURRETS...Sadly they do Not.

Top Notch Japanese Glass

Have this on a 6.5 Creed RPR. Makes targets crystal clear compared to my Vortex in a similar price range. Amazing value for the level of glass you get.
