Seminole FL – A new option in the high quality fire control optics market emerges with Salvo Technologies purchase of Shepherd Scopes. Shepherd Scopes has been making high end dual reticle rifle sights for 30 years. Now with the acquisition by Salvo technologies, a prime contractor for the US military, a new bread of scopes is coming into the market. Shepherd Scopes, now a subsidiary of Salvo Technologies Inc., is releasing a new portfolio of high end scopes and accepting all challengers with regards to quality.

The new scopes feature the same dual reticle scopes with independently moving first and second plane reticles built in as they have in the past. This allows for the shooter to use a simple crosshair for close quarters and then a long range reticle for real drop compensation shooting out to 1000 yards. In the new product lines Shepherd has expanded their offering of drop compensating reticles. These reticles allow shooters to focus on windage. The elevation is simply fit and fire. The new specialty scopes are designed for each weapon platform and built to order, for under $1,000.00. All Shepherd’s rifle sights are built with the highest quality glass and precision metal components. The next generation of Dual Reticle Scopes has arrived.

This all-purpose sight is like no other rifle scope on the planet.  It is far and away the best moving target acquisition rifle scope system available today allowing any shooter to actively acquire and hit a target faster than any traditional scope. Shepherd’s patented reticle range finding system is designed specifically for modern rifle platforms.  The sight also features Shepherd’s One Shot Zero system allowing the user to dial in the gun in a single shot.  The 6X18 variable rifle scope gives shooters the fastest, one step, target range estimator and ballistic drop calculator in the world.  This unique rifle scope allows even an inexperienced shooter the ability to just “Fit and Fire” out to 1000 yards.  The rifle scope features Shepherd’s PVD multi-layer coated HD optics which deliver a crystal clear image through the entire field of view.  The model 618-V series dual reticle scope has 18” range-finding circles for use on large targets including deer and military silhouettes.
