Nikon BDC reticle

Recommended Posts

lawdog

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.

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      Decided to hit a couple spots today. Water too high at the first spot so I went to spot number two.  Two so far after 20 minutes

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!
