View Full Version : BDC

I just bought the Nikon Omega BDC for muzzleloader season coming up. It's advertised as using 150 gr of Pyrodex and a 250 gr bullet. Does anyone know if it will still work with other load combinations? Thanks.

Absolutely and read your manual on recommended loads. I'm only guessing but i'd say that your rated MAX load is at 150grns. From there, you can step down or increase your shot string. For instance, my Target load is 70grs. and my hunting load is at 95grns., all of 777. Min. is at 50grns. but I seldom go there unless we are teaching a class. It's very important for you to read your manual. ... :)

Not sure how you are connecting this Nikon to your M/L. Have never see this consideration.

Be Safe !!!

It will, but at slightly different ranges.
The Omega is set up for a "typical" BP load, just as the BDC scopes for centerfires are for modern loads.
I have a Nikon "Monarch" which is calibrated for 150Gr @ 2800 FPS but I use a slower running round so I just tested for the real distances the reticule corresponded to.
