    That's a good question!
    In fact, there is only one reticle is available for the shelling.
    It is in the middle: ПГП. It does "Пушечная граната полный" (Canon grenade full), which means the shell is completely full of charge.
    The left reticle "ПГ3" does "Пушечная граната третий" (Canon grenade third), which means the shell is half of charge. Mostly, it is for the training shots to prevent the barrel deterioration or shelling on the trenched infantry.
    Thus, in game we can use only the middle reticle "ПГП" for both shell's types: AP and HE, because there is absent of the "third charge" shell.
    The difference between HE(third charge) and HE(full charge) is initial speed: 570m/s and 792m/s. The accuracy of the HE(third charge) is about ~20 meters worse.
    The third scale (right) it is for the MG.
