Why Purchase A Nikon Scope?
The goal is to have a scope that will allow you to hit your target. Nikon has been manufacturing optical glass since 1917. They began as Japan Optical Industries Co., Ltd. They started by making rangefinders and microscopes. In 1921 they produced ultra-small prism binoculars which were one of the first designed and manufactured by Nikon. Their size and functionality are still popular.
In 1925 JOICO Microscope is designed and marketed by Nikon. The trademark was from the initials of the Japan Optical Industry Co. In 1932 NIKKOR is adopted and a brand name for the camera lens. Japan experienced postwar growth, and Nikon's optical equipment played a vital role in showing the world that products made in Japan were of superior quality. Nikon scopes are a great value. If you are looking for a great out of the box scope, Nikon will be a good fit.
To What Does BDC Refer?
BDC stands for "bullet drop comepensator." BDC scopes function by using a reticle pattern that predicts how a projectile, or bullet will drop at a certain distance. In the reticle, there are several points for you to aim at that are stacked vertically under the central crosshair.
BDC scopes can allow you to hit targets over a variety of distances without you having to adjust the scope. There are several applications where this is very useful, such as hunting. Because you don’t have to worry about adjusting your scope, you will be less likely to make an error.
BDC scopes are useful and user-friendly. You will need to take your gun, scope, and bullet of choice to the range and practice. You will want to confirm where your rifle hits the target. It will take effort on your part to understand the specifics of your rifle and load. Like any other scope, you have to educate yourself.
