    Default Savage M 116 Package

    Package came with a nikon 3-9x40 scope with no guidance on the BDC distances when zero in at 100 yards. I've seen multiple pictures of different recticle and distances. Anyone else buy this and test them out or maybe received a paper I didnt. Or just know alot about the scope?

    Very best is to chuck any chart and do your own shooting and calibrating at various distances. They did you a favor in not providing anything.

    I think that BB is right.

    That can't actually work, like that. Maybe ball park, but I'm dubious about even that.

    One would need to know which cartridges are considered "Magnum" and which are "Standard". Some cartridges that have the name of "magnum" shoot flat, and others not so flat.

    Go to http://spoton.nikon.com or Google Nikon Spot On. You can choose your exact bullet load and it'll give you the BDC distances for your scope.
