The Holosun 507C X2 ACSS Vulcan reticle is a very interesting breakthrough design for pistol red dot shooters. It's key feature is to find the red dot faster.
- The 250 MOA outer ring helps re-centering the eye to the 10 MOA chevron tip reticle for faster dot tracking without increasing window size
- Chevron reticle has that fine aiming tip for pistol and rifle applications
In this guide, we gonna show how the ACSS Vulcan reticle look like at different eye relief distances on a pistol and rifle, and also show some side to side comparison with an regular center dot reticle.
Let's check it out:
Assisted Pistol Dot Acquisition And Tracking
Holosun 507C ACSS Vulcan
NEW - Holosun 509T ACSS Vulcan
Check availability below:
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 Trijicon SRO
The Trijicon SRO has a big window to find the 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, the ACSS Vulcan reticle can be even more beneficial for subcompact micro red dots like the Holosun 507K
ACSS Vulcan Reticle On Long Guns
Users can cycle between two modes - ACSS Reticle Only or ACSS reticle + 250 MOA ring
Mounted on Kalashnikov KP9
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)
