Did someone find a pic. of this mythical beast?
I'm sure I've probably seen pretty much every premier reticle over the years.

Default 27

Yep, that's the one, but as they are a custom ret, there are slight variations, for example, mine only has 1 dot above and below the cross hair, and some have a center dot.

Excellent, thank you Peter for confirming that, I like this scope more and more.
I did notice during my bracketing experiences that the four centre dots exactly straddle a 40mm kill at 55 and thought that a bit of a funny coincidence.
On mine the two dots above the centre also bracket a 50 & 55yd target in a particular way which is useful for dark lanes or sillhouetted targets.
