Nikon Announces the First Slug Hunter-Specific Shotgun Scope

Posted on 23 December 2009 by Tom Wiley

Nikon Sport Optics is proud to introduce the very first scope dedicated to the slug gun. Built from the ground up to meet the needs of today’s modern slug shooter, the new 3-9×40 SlugHunter scope is a revolution for an often-overlooked method of hunting.

The Nikon SlugHunter offers hunters a means to take advantage of their shotgun’s shooting characteristics. Designed around Nikon’s patented BDC (Bullet Drop Compensating) reticle system this new scope offers accuracy potential never before thought possible from a slug gun.

Engineered specifically for rifled slug guns, the new Nikon BDC 200 is a trajectory compensating reticle that provides fast, simple aiming points for various shot distances. Calibrated to be sighted in on the crosshair at 50 yards, the BDC 200 has two ballistic circles that represent 100-yard and 150-yard aiming points. For exceptionally accurate gun and load combinations, the lower reticle post becomes a 200-yard aiming point as well.

Well-known hunting writer and slug gun expert Dave Henderson worked with Nikon to develop this scope. His experience and knowledge proved invaluable in creating the ultimate slug gun scope.

“I’ve always been a fan of Nikon optics and working with them to develop a scope specifically for slug hunters was a real joy,” said Henderson. “Slug hunters have long been in need of a scope built for their guns and the new Nikon SlugHunter won’t disappoint.”

A full five inches of eye relief means a safe and comfortable shot with even the hardest hitting magnum loads. Nikon multicoated optics produce crisp, clear images, while 92% light transmission keeps the hunter in the field when the game is moving. The innovative SlugHunter scope features 1/4-MOA click adjustments, 100-yard parallax setting and Nikon’s rugged waterproof, fogproof and shock proof performance.

The New SlugHunter measures a compact 11.3-inches in length, and weighs 13.8 ounces. The scope is priced at $249.95.

Nikon Expands Muzzleloader Line

Posted on 22 December 2009 by Tom Wiley

Nikon rocked the Muzzleloading world with the introduction of the original Omega Muzzleloading riflescope and the new Omega promises more of the same for 2009. Blackpowder hunters now have more options to find the scope that best suits their terrain and style of hunting

The New Omega 1.65-5×36 is a lower magnification, more compact version of its big brother the 3-9×40. Fully packed with features, including the Nikon BDC 250 Reticle calibrated for ballistic tipped sabot muzzleloader bullets, the new Omega is every bit as precise as the original.

“No matter what a hunter’s choice is for a firearm, Nikon has a scope built specifically for that application,” said Nikon Sport Optics General Manager Jon Allen. “From the SlugHunter line to the Omega line to the Encore line, Nikon has more pursuit specific tools than any other optics company.”

Five full inches of eye relief mean you can comfortably and safely mount this scope on even the hardest kicking muzzleloaders. With a super bright exit pupil of 7.2mm and Nikon’s fully multicoated lens you can hunt right up to the end of legal shooting time. The durable one-inch tube features hand turn 1/4 MOA adjustment and a 100-yard parallax setting. Multicoated lens provide 92% Light Transmission for excellent low light performance.

The new Omega is available in a matte finish with the BDC-250 or Nikoplex reticle or Realtree’s APG with BDC-250. The MSRP is $239.95 with the BDC Reticle, $299.95 with the Nikoplex reticle and $249.95 APG with BDC. The new Omega will be on dealer shelves in plenty of time for 2009 hunting seasons.

Nikon Introduces Breakthrough BDC Riflescope Reticle

Posted on 13 December 2009 by Tom Wiley

Nikon has announced a new reticle designed to be used in conjunction with its popular laser rangefinders to provide hunters with an easy-to-use system for determining proper long-range shot placement on animals.

The new Nikon BDC (Bullet Drop Compensating) is actually a trajectory-compensating reticle designed and calibrated to provide fast, simple aiming points for various shot distances. This unique system integrates a series of small “ballistic circles”—each subtending 2” @ 100 yards— allowing unimpeded lines of sight to even small targets.

Nikon’s BDC is designed to be used with most standard centerfire cartridges with typical bullet weights, providing aiming points out to 500 yards, with a 100-yard sight-in. With Magnum cartridges and typical bullet weights, the same scopes with BDC reticles offer aiming points out to 600 yards, with a 200-yard sight-in.

After sighting-in the crosshair at 100 or 200 yards with the highest magnification, determine the distance to the target and use the appropriate ballistic circle. Verify the aiming points by shooting at actual, measured distances.

Mastering the art of long-range shooting has always been one of the greatest challenges for the hunter. Determining the correct hold-point on an animal at long range has a lot to do with the velocity of a cartridge, bullet weight and ballistic coefficient—or science—and little to do with luck or guess work.  While there is no substitute for practice, Nikon’s new BDC reticle— particularly when used with a Nikon Laser Rangefinder—can provide the necessary edge in determining proper shot placement at a variety of known distances. Nikon’s BDC reticle is available in the following scopes, Monarch Gold 2.5-10×50, Monarch 3-9×40, Monarch 3.5-10×50, Monarch 4-12×40, Monarch 5.5-16.5×44, Monarch 6.5-20×44, Buckmasters 3-9×40, Buckmasters 4.5-14×40, Buckmasters 6-18×40 and ProStaff 3-9×40.
