NEW from Primary Arms comes the largest of the SLx line with a 5-25×56 long range MIL scope!

Offered in both the ACSS Athena BPR MIL Reticle and the ACSS Apollo 6.5CM Reticle, you have your choice between MIL markings or bullet drop compensation markings for 6.5 Creedmoor (sorry, .308 WIn users, no BDC for you).

Both versions of the SLx 5-25 use MIL turrets; no MOA option is currently available. The Apollo reticle is calibrated for 6.5 Creedmoor and also works for .224 Valkyre. Primary Arms states that the Apollo reticle can be used from 100 to 1,000 yards without dialing the turret.

The SLx line hosts a list of features perfect for long range shooting. From the 34mm main tube to a zero stop, locking turrets, integrated throw lever, and select-quality glass.

“One of my personal favorite facets of shooting sports is long range. The ability to place a bullet on a small target at distance is one of the most satisfying aspects of shooting,” says Stephen Morgan, Director of Product Marketing at Primary Arms Optics. “The new SLx 5-25 offers some key features like long travel, exceptional glass, intuitive reticles, and precise turrets that make the task of precision shooting accessible at any budget.”
