Nikon P-223 3-9x40 BDC 600 Review

Nikon P-223 3-9x40 BDC 600

When trying to figure out the best scope for one of my AR-15's, I spent countless hours researching scopes. I took multiple trips to my local shop comparing apples to apples, and seeing what features best suited me. After countless hours and month of research, I had narrowed my search down to three scopes. The winner would be a Vortex, Leupold or Nikon. In a side by side comparison I felt the like the Leupold and Nikon held an advantage but picking the best rifle scope from here would be very difficult.

I found myself gravitating toward Nikon P-223 3-9×40 Mate BDC 600 I really felt like this scope had great value for the money. The BDC 600 reticle was specifically designed for .223/5.56 trajectory and the reticle offers unique open 
circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards. It also features 1/4-MOA hand-turn tactical-style turrets with positive click reticle adjustments that get you zeroed in quicker, and maintain your setting even with repeated recoil. I've owned this scope for some time now and once you zero in it holds perfect, you pretty much set it and for get it.

Another nice option is the Zero-Reset Turret Feature. Adjustments are now made simple and fast. Nikon has integrated this feature into all new riflescopes. Just sight-in as usual, then lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and reengage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing-in your subsequent ranges. Nikon is well known for it's full multicoated optical system and this scope is no different. The multi-coat glass provides up to 98% light transmission, providing crisp clean images and maximum brightness from dawn to dusk. The only down side to this scope seems to be when you try to stretch the maximum rated yardage. Visibility can become a challenge. I have to say, I've been extremely happy with my purchase. The Nikon P-223 BDC has been more then capable of handling everything I can throw at it.
