S30 5-30x56 FFP rifle scope
B24 reticle


Variable magnification first focal plane (FFP) rifle scope designed for rapid engagement of targets at varying, unknown ranges. Superb entry level scope for precision rifle, tactical rifle and three gun competition with the MRAD tactical turrets and FFP MRAD reticle (the vast majority of top level precision shooters use Mil/Mil scopes). Magnification range allows engagement of close and long range targets. Just as capable in the field, with the lower magnifications suited to close encounters and the high magnification ideal for long range varminting.  High magnification makes this a great entry level scope for F Class shooting and brenchrest, with the 0.04 MRAD reticle line thickness allowing for precision aiming. 

Falcon scopes have been sold around the world for many years and there are many reviews across their product range. Their target audience is riflemen looking for great performance without having to pay premium prices. The reviews support how successful Falcon have been in hitting their target.  

Optical Features 

  • Fully multi-coated Japanese glass delivers excellent clarity and sharpness. The anti-reflective coatings work with the high quality glass to deliver maximum brightness. 
  • First Focal Plane Reticle remains in proportion to the target, removing the need to set the magnification to a specific value to make the reticle accurate for hold over or ranging.
  • The graduated reticle allows accurate holdover and ranging at all magnifications - a key feature of the FFP reticle position. 
  • Reticles provide 10 MRAD of elevation holdover below zero and 5 above, with 5 MRAD left and right for windage.
  • Hash marks on the B24 reticle (compared to Mildots) allow precise aiming when using the reticle to hold over.  See the diagram in the pictures for details. 
  • Glass-etched reticle means crisp cross hairs, labels every second MRAD (on all four reticle axes). 
  • Side parallax turret is easily accessible from the shooting position for parallax adjustment. 

Construction Features 

  • 30mm diameter main tube provides significant internal elevation and windage adjustment and improved rigidity compared to 1 inch tubes. Wide range of quality scope mounts available (not included). 
  • One-piece construction of main tube, objective and turret saddle ensures internal alignment for improved accuracy and visual performance, as well as strength and sealing. 
  • Constructed from aluminium for strength and rigidity with light weight. 
  • Waterproof construction and nitrogen gas purging prevents internal fogging. 
  • Rugged construction withstands recoil to 338 Lapua Magnum levels. Reviewers attest to Falcon Optics ability to maintain reliability and repeatability through hard knocks. 
  • Durable anodised finish provides a low-glare matte surface, preventing reflections which could distract the shooter or alert quarry. 
  • Tactical turrets provide audible and tactile click feedback and visual confirmation of elevation and windage adjustment.

Internal Mechanism Design Features 

  • Low-friction, wear-resistant, precision-machined turret adjusters allow resetting of elevation and windage zero quickly, easily and accurately. 
  • Steel and brass turret clicker/detent mechanism.
  • Coil spring erector tube system. 

Useability Features 

  • Fast focus eyepiece allows quick and easy reticle focusing.  
  • Tactical turrets allow dialling in elevation and windage adjustments without having to remove turret caps.
  • Large and wide turrets with a knurled, serrated top edge ensure a good grip, useful in cold conditions and when wearing gloves. 
  • Turret turn direction to raise or lower the point of impact, or to adjust windage left or right, is marked on the scope saddle as well as on the top of the turret, making it easier to be sure that adjustment is being dialled in the correct direction with minimum disruption to shooting position. 
  • Magnification markings are on the edge of the ring, making it much easier to see the magnification setting from the shooting position. 
  • Both elevation and windage turrets have markings showing the number of turns, reducing confusion when adjustments of more than one full turn of the turret have been made.  
  • 10 MRAD per turret revolution allows, for the M852 168 grain .308 US military round with a 200m zero, ranges over 800m to be dialled on the first revolution of the turret. Other examples of ranges within 10 MRAD: 
    •  Hornady 140gr A-Max Match 6.5 Creedmore - over 1000m 
    •  Black Hills 300gr Sierra Match King HPBT 338 Lapua Magnum - over 1100m 
  • Both the reticle and the turrets are in the same unit. FFP MRAD turret and reticle make sighting in and in the field sight adjustment simple - measure the change using the reticle and then dial it on the turrets, regardless of the magnification. No need for mental maths (or reaching for the calculator) to convert MOA to MRAD or vice versa.   
  • Metric MRAD system simplifies the mental model required for adjustment. One MRAD is 10cm at 100m. Each click is 0.1 MRAD, which is 1cm at 100m. 
  • Ranging is simplified using the MRAD divisions on the reticle against a known/ estimated size of the target, again reducing the mental math required compared to an MOA reticle. 


  • Magnification range: 5x to 30x 
  • Field of view at 100m: 7.3 to 1.2m 
  • Eye relief: 110mm at 30x
  • Total elevation adjustment range: >17 MRAD - providing a range of adjustment greater than 1.7m at 100m, 17m at 1000m 
  • Adjustment per click: 0.1 MRAD (1cm at 100m, 10cm at 1000m)
  • Adjustment per full revolution of the turret: 10MRAD (1m at 100m, 10m at 1000m)
