Meopta Monday: New Bullet Drop Compensating Reticles

Meopta is pleased to expand its bullet drop compensation (BDC) reticle offerings in select riflescopes for 2017.

The MeoStar R2 1-6×24 RD and MeoStar R1r 3-12×56 RD are now available with two new BDC reticles – the BDC-2 or BDC-3 – with illuminated red dot. Both of these BDC reticles are located in the second focal plane, so riflescopes with either will need to be on a specific power setting for the user’s particular load to ensure accurate holdover. This information can be determined by using the Meopta Ballistic Calculator found on Meopta’s website.

The BDC-2 reticle provides holdover out to 800 yards while the BDC-3 reticle provides holdover options out to 500 yards. The BDC-3 reticle also has hold points for wind correction equating to 10 mph along the horizontal axis of the major yardage lines.



All Meopta riflescopes are covered by Meopta’s North American lifetime

transferable warranty.
