Nikon BDC reticle

3 posts in this topic

I am really thinking about buying one of those Nikon Omega muzzleloader scopes to put on the Omega for the rifle season. Think they are cool. I already got some quick detach rings/bases for the gun so I can take it off for the muzzleloader season too.

I am wondering though if that BDC reticle would make mounting the scope exactly straight up and down all the more important and if so, how do I do that? I almost always mount my own scopes on guns, but I'm thinking with this reticle maybe being even a touch off and getting the cross hairs at even a slight angle would make those aiming points way off side to side too?

Any one have any experience with this issue? How do I get it straight if I do it myself???

I got that scope on my Pro Hunter. I was very amazied with the accuracy I was able to get with it. I have the base plate then the quick detach mounts. Be aware you need to get the rings up a hair because of the rear sight of the iron's. Your not playing with much room at all so be careful which rings you pick. I have the leopold rings and it's very close. I love it but haven't shot past 100 yds yet with it.

mounting the scope with the crosshairs vertical is important all of the time. the adjustments on a scope are left/right, windage, up/down elevation. if the scope isn't set ever so perfectly, you'll notice it when sighting in. for instance. if your gun is two inches high at 100 yards, you would move it down 8 clicks, two inches(on most scopes anyways) if you move it down the correct amount, and now the bullet is shooting down and a bit left or right, it probably means the scope isn't level. you'll notice it more on left and right adjustments, if it seems to be shooting higher or lower after adjusting.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
