Leupold’s new CMR-W reticle

CMR-W-556-Leupold

Leupold has a new reticle, dubbed the CMR-W which is designed for close to mid-range use. The reticle also features a “Circle Dot” which is a variable light in the middle of the reticle. The reticle is available for 5.56mm and 7.62mm. Primary uses include 3-gun competitions and CQB operations.

The CMR-W reticle is currently available on Leupold’s Mark6 line.

    I’ll take a red dot for CQB! Or an eotech :)

    • Practical over Tactical

      “CQB?” You people are fucking insane.

      • michael ward

        Well by the looks of his handle he is a US Army Infantryman (like myself) so, not insane and we are both Practical AND Tactical.

        Lets be respectful of each other in our comments

          Practical and tactical. I just think its ridiculously crowded, like Dale said. If I’m in a room, I want a clear field of view and a simple dot. And CQB, MOUT, whatever you want to call it ;)

        TFB: “Primary uses include 3-gun competitions and CQB operations.”

        So, you’re calling “11b” insane for mentioning the purpose of the optic as described on the blog? More ad hominem.

    The Firedot SPR seems a lot simpler and cleaner to me.

  • Dale

    That reticule just looks insanely crowded to be a practical contender for standard engagement distances under stress. I guess that’s what happens when Leupold and Horus Vision have a lovechild. Still, it could be a contender for the 3 gun market. I’m interested to see how they are ranging their windage values , as it looks like each windage number corresponds to a crosswind at between 5-10 mph. I like the rapid ranging feature, but it crowds the reticule, as does the hold-under delineation.

      I agree Dale. I like the concepts presented here, but that thing is super busy. For anything remotely close-up I’d have to agree that a simple red dot would be better.

      • Dale

        Aaron, I agree completely with the red dot for close-up, but I think that Trijicon’s ACOG line still has a solid hold on the market that Leupold wants to get involved in with the CMR-W. Nightforce also makes a pretty nice illuminated reticule. I’d love to get an answer as to why Leupold based the layout on a 50 meter zero, which is effectively a 200 meter zero, as opposed to the 25 meter (300 meter) BZO.

    Stop making ballistic reticules. They generally stop working past 400m
