The Duplex or Plex reticle gives the hunter basic range-finding capability by representing 10 MOA at 100 metres across the thin centre section of the crosshair with the scope magnification set to 7. Mil dot spacings are available in 10x, 12, 16x and 24x sizes, depending on the scope model. Can be fitted to any LX and most LX2 riflescopes. Nine hold-over aiming points below the centre cross provide an accurate means of compensating for bullet drop over 100 to 400 metres without touching the scope. The diamond-shaped aiming points are small and unobtrusive, presenting an uncluttered sight-picture that does not confuse the eye.

Reviewed by Danie on
Not ideal for bushveld hunting. Scope not clear on magnification larger than x9. At 100m difficult to identify holes on target. Mounted on my 308 with several shots through it, with minor side wards adjustments required every now and again. Possibly a 3-9*40 would prove more ideal for hunting.
