Try not to spit out your coffee as you check the price of the Diamondback Tactical FFP from Vortex after reading about its impressive performance and features. The first focal plane reticle, a feature ordinarily reserved for 4-figure-priced optics, allows shooters to use the information-packed EBR-2C reticles for ranging, holdovers or windage corrections on any magnification.Read more
EBR-2C Reticle (MRAD)
The EBR-2C (Enhanced Battle Reticle) is a hashmarked ranging reticle using MOA-based subtension lines for ranging, holdover, and windage corrections.
XD™ Lens Elements
Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.
Fully Multi-Coated Lenses
Anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces provide increased light transmission for greater clarity and low-light performance.
First Focal Plane Reticle
Scale of reticle remains in proportion to the zoomed image. Constant subtensions allow accurate holdover and ranging at all magnifications.
Protected between two layers of glass for optimum durability and reliability.
30 mm Tube Size
30 mm diameter provides maximized internal adjustment and strength while maintaining light weight.
Nitrogen Gas Purged
Nitrogen gas purging with o-rings-seals delivers fogproof, waterproof performance.
Premium grade of aluminum, valued for fatigue resistance.
Waterproof, Fogproof and Shockproof
O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the tube for reliable performance in all environments. The scope is filled with nitrogen gas to inhibit internal fogging. Lenses are locked in place, fore and aft, with machined locking rings to remain in perfect alignment and withstand recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Finish
Hard-coat anodization is durable; the low-glare matte helps camouflage the shooter's position.
Precision-Glide Erector System
Uses premium components in the zoom lens mechanism, ensuring smooth magnification changes under the harshest conditions.
Exposed Tactical Turrets
The Diamondback® Tactical scopes feature tactical windage and elevation turrets with Zero Reset making adjustments back to zero easy and quick.
Precision-Force Spring System
Uses premium components in the erector-spring system, ensuring maximum repeatability and ease of adjustment.
Fast Focus Eyepiece
Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
The raised rib on the magnification ring facilitates fast magnification changes in the heat of action.
For what you spend you are getting a great product. If you are use to the MOA method MRAD is not much different it’s basically miles per hour vs kilometers per hour
