I have it on several rifles, one an old Kahles scope on a Marholdt Peterlongo Mauser, the other on my 7x64 Mauser stutzen, a Hensoldt.
I have the same without the horizontal wire on a newer Tasco Titan 1.25-4x in 30mm.
I love these reticles - very quick to aim, stand out in all light, very precise aiming with the little tip. The horizontal wire is an aid to lining up on and leading running boar.
Have a couple of Schmidt's here with the 'sniper' reticle (6x42) Quite common, not a lot of good for hold over use - the post gets in the way!

"The .30-'06 is unstable at close range" - Ahahahahhahh!
That is a Tapered Post and not the Picket post found in the so called "Sniper" reticle. The scope on my old Brno 308 had the German version of the "Sniper reticle". I seem to remember those being called Post and Wire reticle.
The top is not tapered at all but flat.
My Hensoldt is tapered, with a sharp point, like an obelisk.
The Zeiss ZF-39 for the K98 was a straight vertical stadia with a point, and the two horizontal stadia don't meet it; there is a little gap.
My later WWII Zeiss 6x is flat post on a crosshair, like the No. 4.
My Tasco Titan is straight, with a point, and no horizontal wire.
This pointed reticle actually works well at a lot of ranges. At closer range, you sit the target above it, like a six o'clock hold with a handgun. Further out, you put the point right on the spot you want to hit. As the range increases, you hold the flat, or bottom of the pointed part, right on where you want to hit. For example, you hold 6 o'clock, with a little gap for 50 and 150 yards, on the tip at 200, on the flat at 300. It is very good like this for dangerous game, inside 100 yards, as you don't try to be spot on - you just line up vertically and a tad under so you can see everything coming at you.
