After being impressed with my Horus HoVR 5-20×50 scope I was excited to see a new product on offer from Horus Vision, the HoVR 6.5-40×50 Spotting Scope.
Horus Vision is owned by Nightforce Optics, who have a great reputation worldwide for producing high quality and rugged scopes. I’m glad to see that the battle proven traits from Nightforce optics have been inherited by Horus products.
One major difference that sets this spotting scope apart from its competitors is the included ranging reticle. Other popular spotting scope manufacturers offer similar reticles as an additional item that’s purchased separately. The spotting scope includes the TREMOR 4 reticle and operates on the first focal plane.
All controls for the spotting scope are located at the rear, with the magnification ring first, focus adjustment and finally the dipoter setting.
The HoVR 6.5-40×50 spotting scope and the TREMOR 4 reticle is designed to help spot corrections for long distance shooting. The Horus HoVR will definitely be on our list when upgrading from our current spotting scope. The HoVR spotting scope is currently priced at $1799 USD / $2695 AUD.
