The Laser IRT combines the BDC reticle with an integral laser rangefinder, which work together to provide hunters with three important ingredients for long-range shots: precise distance measurement, proper aiming point and speed for immediate shot placement.
It features Trijicon's exclusive battery-free, dual-illumination technology and a fiber optic collector that automatically adjusts the brightness of the aiming point. It has a tritium-illuminated, amber-colored reticle and the Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC), which permits both-eyes-open aiming.
Many shooters opted for a neck hold because the tapered neck gave a more precise aiming point at extended ranges--so much so sights were even mechanically built with numbered hold offs for this extended 50-yard B27 target-type shooting.
The smaller dot does provide a more precise aiming point on a target or hunting pistol, or on a rifle.
