I've just purchased a Remington 700VTR in .308 and outfitted it with a Nikon Monarch 4-16x50 scope with the BDC reticule. The BDC reticule consists of a cross hair with four circles on the lower leg. With a 2800fps muzzle velocity, you should have a 100yd zero and the circles automatically subtend out to 200, 300, 400, and 500 yards. With a 3000fps muzzle velocity, you set a 200yd zero with subtends out to 300, 400, 500, and 600 yards. In the BDC reticule video on Nikon's website, they state that they are using a 150 grain .308 with 2800fps mv for the 100yd zero demonstration. Later in the video for the 200yd zero demo, they say they are using a 300 Win Mag with 3000fps mv, but they don't say what weight they're using. I bought Hornady SST Interlock Superformance cartridges in 150 grain with 3000fps mv. With a 200yd zero, they are supposed to be +1.5" @ 100yds. I only have a 100yd range available to me so I plan on zeroing the rifle at +1.5" at 100yds for a theoretical 200yd zero. Finally my questions. 1. Can I expect to see the proper accuracy with the BDC reticule with my aforementioned plan? 2. Is there anyone else out there who can tell me which factory loads and set-ups have delivered the best accuracy with the BDC reticule? It's important to note that my VTR is the Cabela's edition with the 24" un-ported barrel...NOT the 22" ported version with 20.5" of barrel behind the break. Hornady's ballistic testing is based on a 24" barrel...so I should achieve proper MV. I don't hand load YET, so I'm only interested in posters who have experience with multiple factory .308's with the BDC reticule. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
