I've had experience with the ACSS reticle in an ACOG and this was a no brainer for me. I'm a huge fan of the 0 MOA chevron and the BDC dots are nice in case you want to stretch it out. I don't personally like shooting a 4 MOA dot out to 100 and further.
I've paired it with a Vortex 3x magnifier and my initial impressions are very positive. Sight seems well built and the controls are easy to operate. Nice choice in brightness settings and the auto on/off is a solid touch. I like that you don't need tools to adjust it as the turret caps invert and act as the windage/elevation adjustment tools. 50 thousand hour battery life is also a nice feature. It's really light at under 5 ounces. Behind the magnifier the reticle is crisp and the BDC dots (which are 2 MOA) are clearly visible. The reticle is surrounded by a 65 MOA horseshoe alà eotech.
Without the magnifier the reticle isn't the clearest thing ever. It's not bad but the bottom 2 BDC dots bled together at times. The lower 1/3 mount. Everything I've read laments the mount as less than stellar. At a 220 dollar price point a quality mount is going to cost 75ish bucks and up. I don't think Holosun has changed the mount but seeing as how most people are swapping it out why not cut the price 20 or 30 bucks and not include it. After adding a mount it's gonna be a 330 to 375 total expenditure. Not sure I'd call 350 bucks a "budget" optic.
So out of the box is it an Aimpoint? Nah but for 226 shipped plus a mount if I've got to add one it seems good so far. The reticle makes it for me. I'm gonna hit the range tonight or tomorrow and zero it. I'll update this as I go. In 2 weeks I'm giving my building clearing class and I plan on using it for that.
