Second Focal Plane Reticle
Scale of reticle maintains the same ideally-sized appearance. Listed reticle subtensions used for estimating range, holdover and wind drift correction are accurate at the highest magnification.
Protected between two layers of glass for optimum durability and reliability.
Provides precise aiming under low-light conditions.
30 mm diameter.
Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance. As well as ensures strength, durability and quality of the waterproofing.
Constructed from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and rigidity.
O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the riflescope for reliable performance in all environments.
Nitrogen gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
Hard Anodized Finish
Highly durable low-glare matte finish helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
Capped Reset Turrets
Allow re-indexing of the turret to zero after sighting in the riflescope. Caps provide external protection for turret.
Fast Focus Eyepiece
Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
Standard BDC Technique
For best results, most 5.56mm/.223 caliber rifles can be zeroed in at 50 yards using the center dot. The 50 yard zero will closely correspond to the recommended 200 yard zero. 7.62mm/.308 caliber rifles can be initially zeroed at 30 yards, again closely corresponding to recommended 200 yard zero.
Once the rifle has been sighted in, the lower sub-crosshairs can be used
as aiming points at the corresponding distances listed on page 5. For most popular rifles and loads, the sub-crosshairs will provide accuracy within 0–3 inches of your aiming point.
Note: If you wish to get the very best accuracy from the AR-BDC2 reticle or work with loads and zero’s other than those listed here, you can custom match the exact ballistics of your particular load to the drop hashmarks of the reticle using ballistic programs such as Vortex’s LRBC (Long Range Ballistics Calculator).
Standard Bullet Drop for Popular 5.56 mm / .223 Loads
Note: It is important to understand that the previously-listed subtensions and yardages are designed to work with the riflescope set at the highest magnification. The center dot zeroed at 30/50/200 yards can always be used at any magnification.
