The reticles

The two series of scopes are the Bushnell Elite Tactical HDMR and the Elite Tactical DMR scopes. The HDMR scopes offer the Horus H59 or the TreMor 2 reticles whereas the DMR scopes use the G2DMR or the Mil-Dot reticles. See the images below for the Horus and the G2DMR reticles.

The riflescope offers a magnification range from 3.5x to 21x. This covers pretty much any sort of short/medium range to quite long-range shooting. The 50mm objective lens allows for increased light transmission producing a crisp and bright image. This is especially important when using the scope for long-range shots or in not-so-bright conditions.

Bushnell announced the new reticles and scope in a press release in May 2012:

Bushnell Outdoor Products, an industry leader in high-performance sports optics and outdoor accessories for more than 60 years, has introduced four new Bushnell Elite Tactical HDMR and DMR 3.5-21x 50mm Riflescopes. These scopes are part of the Bushnell extended range riflescope (ERS) family designed to give tactical marksmen a powerful optic that works equally well in short or extended range shooting applications. The Bushnell Elite Tactical HDMR is available with the Horus H59 and TreMor 2 reticles, and the Elite Tactical DMR features the G2DMR™, and Mil-Dot™ reticles.

The 3.5-21x 50mm riflescope gives shooters the flexibility of a wide field of view at low power settings, while providing outstanding image clarity at high magnification. Featuring a 34mm one-piece aircraft grade aluminum alloy tube, these scopes offer professional-grade toughness in a package just over 13 inches long. The large tube combined with the 50 mm scope objective lens size provides increased light transmission and 29 mils of elevation (5 mils per revolution), allowing shooters to dial-up for extended range shots. T-Lok™ locking target turrets insure that adjustments stay constant, and the side parallax adjustment offers image clarity at all ranges.
