Don’t want to shoot a 168 gr. HPBT bullet in your .308 rifle? Fine, choose a 165, 173, 160 grain round, THEN choose the rapid action turret model which allows you to dial in the yardage without the BDC system clouding up your reticle. After you’ve chosen the turret model, go to the Nikon Optics page online, and order a custom turret system for your scope based on the load you prefer to use in your .308 rifle. You’re not limited to just one load either. Depending on the application, feel free to order as many as you like.
If the BDC model floats your boat, all you need is the Nikon Spot On program available free online, or a fair priced download both for iPhone, iPad and Android devices to figure out the exact flight and drop pattern of your preferred load, whether it’s the 168 grainer or not.
I haven’t personally owned the M223 riflescope previously mentioned. I have however owned the Nikon Coyote Special and had great success with it, along with a Nikon Buckmaster scope, and several ProStaff scopes some with BDC and some with a standard duplex reticle and they’ve all worked and functioned flawlessly for me. I’m sure the new M308 Ballistic Riflescope (built on the Monarch platform) will be nothing short of “the usual” for the folks at Nikon.
