Re: nikon prostaff bdc
Of course it all depends on where your zero is how far you can shoot with the BDC circles. 100 yards bullseye or a 200 yard bullseye.. I have the apps the Nikon pushes. you input the commercial ammo on a drop down. the caliber of course, where your going to zero it.. 50, 100, 150, 200 etc and it calculates for your caliber and BDC scope the yard where all the bullets will hit bulleye using the applicable BDC dots.. I have recently started using Nikon scopes on my fox and coyote guns and they are grouping nice and are working for me at night time with a shooting light attached to the top of the scope..It's called NIKON SPOTON. You can even input the wind velocity and it will calculate where to aim for wind drift too...to sum it up... all BDC points don't shoot let say at 150, 200, 300, It depends on the bullet, caliber, and where you zero the gun in for.. go to Nikon web site and trigger the SPOTON simulator that will show you how the IPHONE APPS works..Sadly there is a small charge for the apps but if you want to have an idea where your particular caliber going to hit you might want to consider it...I do know that for example..Cabelas unique caliber BDC scopes will kind of tell you where let say their 35 Rem 4570, 3030 BDC will hit.. However this is just for these particular designated scope for lever actions. In other words if you have a 30/30 you buy the 30/30 Cableas BDC scope.. I have used the Spoton for non NIKON scope intput to.. If I have a 3 X 9 40 mm I pick out the Nikon 3 X 9 40 MM as the scope of choice on the apps.
