I recently acquired a new Primary Arms 1-8X24 Scope. I was very surprised at the quality and performance of this optic given the price point. This was my first experience with a Primary Arms optic and I must say that everything I’ve heard in regards to price and quality has been true thus far. Even more impressive for me was the reticle that the scope is equipped with. In this video we’ll take an in-depth look at the Advanced Combined Sighting System (ACSS). The designer of this reticle turned out to be a frequent viewer of my channel, after talking to him on the phone, researching and shooting with this optic, I’m convinced that the Marine Corps should be looking at this reticle to put in the next generations of RCO optics. Trijicon has even come out with TA-31 featuring the ACSS reticle, in my opinion, that is probably one of the best combat optics for an individual infantry rifleman available.

A few have commented on this so I'm going to put this here and hopefully others have enough common sense to read this before they type so I can minimize having to say this over and over. I have been told by a few that me saying "Ret-ta-kyool" and not "Ret-ta-Coal" is wrong and I need to learn how to pronounce it right.
I've heard both Reticle and Reticule my whole life, my take on it is that they are interchangeable like "Car-Bean" and "Car-B-Eye-n", both meaning carbine referring to the rifle. In the future I will probably just say "reti-coal" so that I don't have to reply to these comments anymore. Like I said though, I've heard it said both ways my whole life, and judging by the 10,000+ views on this video and only a few have commented about this subject, I think I'm not the only one here that has that has this point of view.
I even pronounce it both ways in the very video: 4:04
In short, I've posted a couple links below backing up what I have said about them being interchangeable. Either way since I know now that some get their panties in a bundle over this, I'll simply just say "reti-coal" exclusively in the future.
