The 250 MOA outer ring represents the position of the chevron tip when the optic is slightly off center. At an average arm length pistol sight picture, the outer ring guides the shooter's eye to re-center the reticle.

In another word, it eliminates the searching problem when the shooter loses the center dot on a micro pistol red dot. It also helps with one handed shooter to acquire the dot much better.

If the shooter properly aligns the optic, then only the 10 MOA chevron tip is visible in the middle.

Note: the user can also turn off the 250 MOA ring simply by holding the "-" for 3 seconds.


ACSS Vulcan VS Regular Dot

The Trijicon SRO has a big window to find the 5 MOA dot, and the ACSS Vulcan reticle guides the eye to re-center the reticle. Both optics are great either way for shooters who have already mastered their sight picture acquisition.

In many ways, as the ACSS Vulcan reticle gets more popular, it will be exciting to see it on other pistol optics.

Users can cycle between two modes - ACSS Reticle Only or ACSS reticle + 250 MOA ring

When using the ACSS Vulcan reticle as an primary optic on a long gun, the ACSS reticle will be useful without the 250 MOA ring.

The chevron tip can be used for bullet drop compensation for various calibers.

The 250 MOA ring CANNOT be used the same way as the EOTECH's 68 MOA ring for holdover applications. (Maybe for shotgun spread pattern at a particular distance)
