What are BDC Turrets?

What are BDC Turrets?

Bullet Drop Compensators (BDC) are simply target style elevation turrets on a rifle scope which are calibrated in yards rather that the standard MOA (or ¼ MOA clicks). By simply turning the BDC turret to display the proper yards to target, rapid adjustments for bullet drop at varying distances can be made.

How do scope turrets work?

To get an efficient performance from the rifle scope people use external raised knobs on the scope that is known as turrets. They set it near to the eye at the top and the right side for easy management of the turrets. They are known as Windage & Elevation knobs used for adjustment.

How does BDC work on a scope?

BDC scopes work by using a reticle pattern that predicts how much a bullet will drop at a given range. The idea is that, when your rifle is zeroed a certain range, usually 100 yards, the other aiming points will correspond to the bullet’s impact at longer ranges.

What does scope BDC mean?

bullet drop compensator
BDC stands for bullet drop compensator, and the reticle is the crosshairs in your scope. The reticle pattern predicts how much a bullet will drop at a given range. If you have your rifle zeroed at, for example, 100 yards, the points beneath the crosshair tell you the bullet’s impact at 200 yards, 300 yards, and so on.

What is holdover?

A “holdover” occurs when a tenant continues to occupy and use the premises after the term of the lease ends. If the landowner continues to accept rent payments, the holdover tenant can continue to legally occupy the premises.

What is holdover in long range shooting?

Hold over normally refers to aiming above your target because the bullet is falling as it travels. The simple way to think is the farther the bullet goes the lower it will hit on the target. Saying there is no holdover at 300 means that the weapon is zeroed at 300 yards or shoots “flat” enough that it doesn’t matter.

What is zero stop on a scope?

The zero stop stops the turret when it gets to the preset distance. In some scopes, the zero stop stops the turret rotation a few clicks below the zero. That gives the user the possibility to dial under the preset zero. But in most cases, it stops at zero. This is a great feature for people who shoot on long range.

What is a throw lever on a scope?

Throw levers, cat tails, power levers–they have many names, but they all add up to one thing: the ability to rapidly change the magnification level of your variable optic. This is a useful option with any optic, but when we’re talking low-power variable optics (LPVOs) they’re definitely worth some extra consideration.

Does BDC change with zoom?

Will the secondary crosshairs work at that power? Riflescopes with multiple aiming points for distant targets are all the rage. Here’s why power matters: Because BDC reticles are almost always in the scope’s second focal plane, the size of the crosshairs doesn’t appear to change as you change magnification.

How does vortex BDC reticle work?

A BDC scope is a rifle scope that has BDC (Bullet Drop Compensation) functionality built into the scope either via the scope reticle or via the scope turrets. This BDC functionality gives the shooter the ability to shoot at certain preset distances without having to calculate the drop of the bullet over the distance.

Is MOA better than Mil?

1/4 MOA adjustments are slightly more precise than 1/10 MIL. MIL values are slightly easier to communicate. If you think in yards/inches the math for range estimation is easier with MOA. If you think in meters/cm the math is easier with MIL.

What does holdover rate mean?

A hold-over clause in a commercial lease typically provides that if a tenant remains in possession of the leased premises after the expiration of the stated lease term, the tenant must pay rent to the landlord in an amount substantially in excess of the rental rate at the end of the term – often as high as 150 percent …
