This multi-purpose reticle allows the hunter to use the ballistic drop reticle or the center aiming point in conjunction with a custom ballistic turret that has been calibrated in yards.

The hold-over aiming points provide the shooter with aim points out to approximately 500 yards, depending on the cartridge and bullet used. The reticle's windage hash marks assist the shooter in compensating for the wind.

The G-7-powered IBS Ballistic Calculator lets the shooter calculate and print out the distance for each hold-over dot or hash mark for his or her rifle and cartridge. The shooter enters the ballistic information of the cartridge into the calculator, or the factory cartridge specifications are selected; then the user can print a field-carry hold-over chart for that specific load.

A custom ballistic turret, which can be ordered from G7, allows the shooter to adjust the vertical turret to match the distance to the target, then hold right on to complete the shot.

The new IBS System provides shooters with maximum flexibility and ease of use for ultimate in long-range performance, whether using a bullet-drop compensating turret or reticle. The IBS reticle will be available in both Leica's 2.5-10x42 and 3.5-14x42 ER riflescope models either with or without target turrets (elevation only).
