The reticle of the optical sight is provided with range marks from 200 to 800 meters in increments of 200 meters.
The outer lateral surfaces of the circular reticle simultaneously serve as lead marks when aimed at laterally moving targets, moving at approximately 15 km/h (9m/h) speed at a range of 200 meters.
The interior diameter of the circular reticle corresponds to a target with a height of 1.75 meters (or 5.5 feet) at a 400 meter range.
The range marks at the bottom left which help to find and set the range at 200, 400 and 800 meters are also based on a target sized about 1.75 meters (5.5 feet).
In the same manner, the heights of the crossmarks at 600 m and 800 m correspond to a target of approximately 1.75 m (5.5 feet) height at the respective range.
