The Shepherd Rugged™ Series has been designed to endure virtually any tactical weapon system or environment there is. Added strength to the turret assemblies, lens retainers, and interior support systems allow these scopes to take any punishment that the terrain or weapon can dish out without adding weight. As with all Shepherd Scopes, we use the best extra-low dispersion glass to synchronize colors and focus wavelengths for the brightest and clearest sight picture possible.
The 3-9×40 Rugged Scope has a one piece 30mm tube, ¼ MOA per click turrets, locking adjustable eyepiece, and a bullet drop compensating front focal plane (FFP) reticle. The scopes are nitrogen purged to prevent fogging and waterproof up to one meter. No matter what environment you’re shooting in, you can shoot faster and farther with Shepherd!
The reticle in the Rugged 3-9×40 has drops for multiple calibers combined into one reticle. From 400 yards to 1000 yards there are 18” (at range) horizontal lines for flatter trajectories and 9” lines for bullets with more drop. There are also ½ MOA Dots out to 600 yards for .223/5.56.
6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08, 300 Win Mag, .308, 30-06, 338 Win Mag are just some of the calibers that will work on the R-22 reticle. Compare your bullet drops to the reticle drop figures below. Combine this scope with Shepherd’s Cradle Mount to quickly and easily move the scope from one rifle to another.
