Anyone use the Nikon 223 Scope? How do you like it? Does it keep 0 well? Comments on it?
I've been looking at picking up a 3-9 with the BDC by Nikon but before I do this, I've got a question about the App for you Jon.JonM said:ive got their android spot on app as well.
Yes. You can punch in a ton of custom data points. They did a nice joband it works with almost all their scopes not just the bdc versionsI've been looking at picking up a 3-9 with the BDC by Nikon but before I do this, I've got a question about the App for you Jon.
Is there a spot to input hand load data into it and have the app give you the hold overs for such?
Cool, I read that it supported hand loads, but wasn't sure if that was just someone else saying it. Now that I know they do, that just made me want one all the more.JonM said:Yes.

You can buy the app or use it for free on nikons website.
Squawk said:I've owned two Nikon scopes. I was not a fan of the BDC reticle. I much prefer Mil-Dot reticles. Is this going on an AR15? Look at the Redfield Battlezone. It is a Mil-dot scope around $200. That is my next purchase. I have sold my Nikon scopes.
I've messed around with the program before, but that was when looking for a .22LR scope. I was going to buy it then too but decided not to since it was only a rimfire. But knowing they added the reloaders ability to use it, I'm going to put the money on the scope. Just have to see if a LGS has one or if I have to driver a ways to get the model I'm looking at.JonM said:here is the start page for nikon's spoton http://www.nikonsportoptics.com/en/Nikon-Products/Hunting-SpotOn/index.page
you can check out the program and use it before you decide if thats a selling point for you.
I thought all the Nikons have life time warrenties,,,,I believe mine do and I have several on deer rifles.ive got the 308 version with bdc reticle on my scar17. seems to work great. the real neat thing is nikon has a thing called spot on that lets you easily use your bdc reticle at any range in any magnification.
ive got their android spot on app as well.
it seems to work as advertised. ive got a couple other nikon scopes that hold zero really well i dont think im going to have issues with this one.
tthe only drawback to nikon products is the total lack of warranty support after about a year of ownership.
