Nikon P-223 3-9x40 BDC 600 Rifle Scope Product Info

The Nikon P-223 3-9x40mm Rifle Scope 8497 is an effective variable zoom rifle scope for everything from range shooting to tree stand hunting. These powerful Rifle Scopes from Nikon are equipped with fully multi-coated optics that, together with the 40mm objective lens, create a light transmission rate of 98%; this is the ideal light transmission for low light situations like sunrise and sunset, when animals are the most active. Nikon has equipped the Nikon P-223 3-9x Variable Zoom Scope with a patented BDC 600 reticle, which gives you unique open-circle aiming points and bullet drop hash marks from 100 to 600 yards. Not only is the Nikon P-223 3-9x40mm Scope accurate, but it is also comfortable to use, featuring an extended eye relief that will stand up to heavy recoil. Adjustments are made via tactical-style windage and elevation knobs that can be turned by hand, and with Nikon's Zero-Reset functionality, all you have to do is dial in a range, line up your shot, and take down your target. O-ring sealed and nitrogen charged, you won't have to worry about rain or snow getting in the delicate mechanism of your Nikon P-223 Rifle Scope, since it's both waterproof and fog proof. For a variable zoom scope that is highly accurate with any load-out, pick up the Nikon P-223 3-9x40 BDC 600 Reticle Scope - and get your rifle on target.

Most Recent Review P-223 Scope by Patriot, April 6, 2015
Fits great on my Ruger SR 556. Zeroed it in at an indoor range and have not had the chance to get outside and shoot at different distances. Mounted the scope with a QD rail mount and took it off and switched with my red dot and then back to the Nikon...
Most Recent Review Lens are clear and the price is fair by Ky wildcats, April 4, 2015
I expected the crosshairs to stand out a little more. Wish I held out for an illuminated reticle. But the lens is very clear and the mounts feel secure. It is a little heavy and makes the charging handle more difficult to reach. Maybe I need to adju...
