Y-TAC RETICLE - TACTICAL USE
as a fast acquisition, low-light ranging reticle, the Y-Tac/R is intended for a Designated Marksman’s
optic. The variable 2.5-10x42 Optic by I O R–Bucuresti gives the most flexibility for both short and long
distances, with a fixed, second focal plane reticle location, avoiding negative shrinking at low power for point-shooting
at close range. This scope is quickest around 3X, with the widest field of view, like a CCO with both eyes open. The
post aiming point is less than 1 minute, or 0.9” thick at 100 yards with the scope reticle and mils synchronized at
10X power, as a Long Range Marksman optic.
Though it is a mil reticle, the Y-Tac is made to quickly
range a target’s width by a unique gauge built into the center pointer, resembling the front-sight assembly on M1’s,
M14’s or M16 rifles. The “wings” surround the 1 mil tall x 0.25 mil thick aiming post (0.9” at 100
yd) with a total of 10 mil-lines below the post, for holdovers at long range and mil-range-finding.
multiple targets appearing, and no time for mil’n the math, the wing-gauge of the Y-Tac quickly ranges the distance
by outside shoulder-width match with upper points and lower corners of the “wings”: fit at 150 yd and 200 yd on
the outer and inner points of the top wings, and bottom wing-corners fitting outside at 300, then 400, and 500 on the inside

Using this scale with the corresponding mil-holdover
for determined range results in very accurate fire on distant targets of opportunity - or for general carry, urban short range,
turn the power down to around 3X for quickfire close in, up to150-200yds, when trajectory is about flat.
The glass is the highest quality from Germany, Schott Glaswerk, part of the Hensoldt
– Zeiss Gruppe. I O R Bucuresti has been modernized and equipped by the same since 1975, with the
finest machines, technicians, and Lens-coatings developed out of the Carl Zeiss T-3 system.
These Riflescopes so
equipped under agreement with I O R Bucuresti, and imported by I O R – Valdada for BW Optic, provide the finest in brightness,
resolution, and precision with a reticle-to-target contrast uncommon in tactical optics.
