Nikon announced that it will start to ship and introduce the 3-9x50 version of the successful Buckmasters II rifle scope series. This new model is on its way to retailers now.

Shots in low light conditions are some of the most common and as such this scope is a great choice for any hunter. It comes with Nikon’s famous top-notch lenses and coatings.

This specific scope offers a BDC reticle which offers simplicity when aiming over long distances. The multicoated lenses offer maximum brightness and clarity.

Nikon offers the Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. It is available as a free app or online and allows to optimize the BDC reticle to your cartridge. This provides the best aiming experience for a hunter.

The ¼ inch@100 yards adjustments on the reticle make it easy to sight-in the scope. The spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets let the shooter return to the zero-mark after the scope is sighted-in.
