What is a Leupold Rimfire MOA Reticle?
It is a special type of reticle (or crosshair) that is found in some of Leupold’s rifle scopes. The MOA (Minute of Angle) Reticle is specially designed for precision shooting with rimfire rifles, such as .22 caliber rifles. The reticle is made up of thin crosshairs with small dots that are spaced 1 MOA (minute of angle) apart. This allows for more precise aiming and better accuracy when shooting at small targets at longer distances. The reticle is available in several different sizes and shapes, allowing shooters to choose the one that best fits their needs.
Additionally, the dots are located at the center of the reticle which helps to eliminate parallax and ensure accuracy. The Leupold Rimfire MOA Reticle is an excellent choice for shooters who are looking to improve their accuracy with rimfire rifles.
How to Use the Leupold Rimfire MOA Reticle
The Leupold Rimfire MOA reticle is a versatile and easy to use. It is designed specifically for precision shooting with a rimfire rifle. The reticle is designed to provide the shooter with a clear, easy to read aiming point that is well suited for both long distance and close range shooting.
The first step in using the Leupold Rimfire MOA reticle is to understand the reticle. The basic crosshair reticle consists of a vertical and horizontal crosshair lines with a center aiming point. This is different from a standard crosshair in that it has a series of horizontal and vertical hash marks that line the crosshairs. Each of these marks is spaced one MOA (minute of angle) apart. One MOA is equal to 1/60th of a degree and represents 1.047 inches at 100 yards. This makes it easy to accurately measure and adjust for bullet drop, windage, and elevation.
The next step is to zero the rifle. This can be done by shooting at a target at a known distance and making adjustments to the scope until the center of the crosshairs lines up with the center of the target.

Adjust the scope: Once you have an estimate of the target’s distance, adjust the scope’s windage and elevation knobs to compensate for the distance. This will ensure that your shot is as accurate as possible.
Aim in the center: Once your scope is adjusted, make sure to aim in the center of the target. This will help you hit the bullseye and get the best accuracy.
