The ACSS Aurora reticle is our very first foray into meter-based ranging and fire solutions. The feature-rich and intuitive reticle design is uncluttered, designed to communicate vital information in an efficient manner to not only increase first-hit probability but drastically reduce the time necessary to reach a firing solution to get that hit. From 300m and in, the illuminated chevron aiming point provides wicked-quick snap shooting capability and both-eyes open engagement, so you never lose peripheral vision. The outer tips of the chevron pull double duty as leads for targets moving 3.1mph perpendicular to the shooter. For targets moving a bit faster, the two lead dots on either side of the chevron are leads for a target hustling along at 8.6mph. Aurora even compensates for mounted targets up to 40mph!
For engagements 400m and out, the integrated bullet drop compensation and wind leads come into play. The tried and true ACSS auto-ranging system allows for near-instant range estimation, which enables rapid transition to the BDC system that offers holdovers in 50m increments out to an impressive 800 meters. The real world often involves wind, and ACSS Aurora provides full value 5 and 10mph wind holds. Is the wind a little stronger or softer, maybe coming at an angle? Use the holds as a reference point and adjust accordingly. For operators in the field, no other reticle provides the combined capabilities and intuitive use of the ACSS Aurora.

Great scope, not a fan of the reticle
by Shade -
I love everything about this except one thing. The reticle is to damn small all the way around. You can BARELY see the wind hold dots against a white surface. You cant see them at all with a treeline as your backdrop, wish the rest of the markings lit up then this would be a nice scope. I like the scope but if I had to do it again I would not get the Aurora. I dropped a lot of cash on this and to walk away not real happy about it is a kick in the boys.
Unmatched capabilities in the Aurora reticle in a combat proven optic!
This optic is first rate! I have experience fighting overseas in both Iraq and Afghanistan using the Marine Corps issued RCO. This optic here is in the same combat proven optic but with a MUCH more capable reticle! The new Aurora ACSS reticle is unbelievable and gives the regular shooter so much more in terms of capabilities such as ranging the average human target with shoulder width, and by height. Additionally it has wind, running, walking, and fast mover holds! The U.S. Military seriously needs to get this in the hands of our war fighters! For anyone that is interested I've done a full blown review of this optic on my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qw_H7ZrF3HY&t=219s
A fantastic optic with the best reticle available
Being my first ACOG I am impressed with the clarity if the glass. The 4x magnification is enough to greatly aid with longer range shots but allows the illuminated chevron to be used when firing at close distances. What really sets this optic apart from the other models is the reticle. I'm a big fan of the chevron but the Aurora line has many other built in features. This new Aurora reticle is a derivative of the ACSS line with built in range finding capabilities. With the Aurora reticle you can easily range a man-sized target from 300-800m using the width of the target's shoulders or 400-800m using the height of the body standing, or even half of the body (from belt to head). It also features wind leads for 5 and 10mph crosswind; and leads for a walking/running target. These features greatly increase the user’s chance of getting accurate hits outside of the static range. I've had no issues with eye relief and in my opinion, this is the best combat optic on the market today.
