This Nikon M-308 4-16x42 Riflescope, BDC 800 Reticle, Matte (8495) represents Nikon's Precision AR Optic technology for heavier caliber rifles capable of long-range accuracy. Designed for extreme sighting speed and superior long-range accuracy with the popular 168 grain 308 Win ammo, the M-308 4-16x42 features a choice of either the BDC 800 reticle, or Nikoplex reticle and precise Rapid Action Turrets.
The 8495 model with the BDC 800 reticle allows you to sight-in at 100 yards, then you simply select the proper BDC circle to look through for longer shoots up to 800 yards. For example, a 400 yard shot will require the shooter to select the third circle down from the cross hair as the holdover point. Looking through the BDC circle is similar to using a peep sight and is easy to use.
The high magnification range zoom makes it the ideal optic for AR10 platforms as well as for long range bolt action rifle applications. Includes M-308 one-piece mount, with built-in 20 MOA slope (Note, your rifle will need to have a picatinny rail to accept the mount).
