The Active Target Special features several technology upgrades that will satisfy even the most demanding predator hunters. A bright new optical system, remarkable hand-turn reticle adjustments with spring loaded Instant Zero Reset turrets, and a convenient quick-focus eyepiece make adjustments while in a shooting position a breeze. The Active Target 4-12x40 with BDC Predator reticle is an ideal fit for both bolt action and AR rifle platforms.

With enough power for the longest-range shots and a wide field of view to keep you on predators coming into the call, you can count on the Active Target Special 4-12x40 in any situation. In addition, Active Target riflescopes are built with fully multi-coated optics for maximum light transmission, even in extreme low light environments.
