Landed in Australia – The Horus HOVR 5-20×50

The Horus HOVR 5-20×50 has arrived on our shores. Most long range shooters have had some time behind the famous Horus ‘TREMOR’ reticles which Horus have licensed out to major optics manufactures including Vortex, Nightforce and Leupold. Having used some of these reticles in scopes over the past few years it was about time that the Horus HOVR 5-20×5 long range optic became available here in Australia.

Horus HOVR 5-20x50

The Horus HOVR 5-20×50 is a compact package coming in at 762g or 28.88oz making it a good weight for the precision rifle shooter or long range hunter. The optic is available in the the first focal plane and currently has three reticle choices, the TREMOR3, TREMOR5 and H59-MOA. It is the most economical scope on the market to feature the TREMOR reticle.

The scope features a capped windage knob, which isn’t a huge surprise as most users of the TREMOR reticle prefer to use holdovers for windage adjustments over dialing. Being a compact scope the maintube is 30mm.

Horus have also released a Hovr weather meter and rangefinder which they are also offering with the scope as a kit called the ‘Complete Shooter Package’. The range finder ranges to 2000 yards and has bluetooth connectivity to the HORUS Ballistics App. The weather meter measures wind speed, temperature, barometric pressure and humidity.

Overall this is a great package for starting your journey into precision shooting and I cant wait to get some time behind this scope.
