On April 1, 2016, Vortex Optics announced their latest reticle to revolutionize Shotgun shooting for winged targets.

In a bold move to revolutionize the turkey and wingshooting industry, Vortex Optics proudly introduces the EBR-12GA reticle. Calibrated specifically for a wide variety of factory shot loads, the EBR-12GA ensures no pellet is out of place when you pull the trigger.

No one asked, we delivered! Happy Hunting Vortex Nation

In case you missed it, it was an April Fool’s joke. Pretty funny though.

    You turkey. Thanks for sharing this tomfoolery. 🙂

    How many mils are the dots, and can you adjust them for your actual pattern? Is it waterproof?

    • manBear

      Did you inject a whole marijuanas?

      I dare you to shoot your shotgun until you get the exact same patten twice

          In that case you would use a regular reticle in your scope :p

    It’s good but i prefer taping 60 laser pointers to the hand guard for laser point precision.

      I think I saw an ad on TV for a “sparkle light” to be used for outside Christmas decoration on the house. Wouldn’t that work?

  • Vitsaus

    A little late huh?

  • Jwedel1231

    It would be nice if each of those dots had a BDC, so I could compensate for drop on each pellet at distance.

  • Bill

    Is this 7 days late? Yes, yes it is.

  • John Cheek

    How about “tracer” pellets for shot shells?

  • George Dean

    Is that designed for taking Turkeys or taking Turkey hunters?
