BDC Rifle Scopes

BDC is an acronym for bullet drop compensation and refers to a setting on the scope where you can adjust the range to factor in bullet drop. In most cases BDC is caliber and even bullet weight specific.

There are a number of rifle makers in the market who offer a BDC model, but my 2 favorites are BSA and Nikon.  While I realy like the Nikon Monarch series which has a BDC reticle, I think the BSA Sweet series did a better job of integrating the bdc performance.

I have a BSA Sweet 22 and it works amazingly well. I use the 38 grain turrent and run 38 grain ammo with it. I sighted the scope in for dead on at 50 yards. Then you can adjust the range feature and the BDC corrects for the distance. I can routinely put 5 shots in a quarter at 100 yards with my 22 with no holdover. Simply adjust the BDC for 100 yards and shoot dead on.

If you happen to be interested in one of the BSA sweet series, they make it for a 22, 17HMR, 223, 270, and 30-06.
