    Has anyone used the sig BDX scopes and Rangefinder?

    I am thinking of putting one on my hunting rifle for an upcoming hunt. The guys there take deer out to 700 yards. It has been 5 years since I took a deer and I think this system would make me more comfortable with a shot that long and correctly judging the distance.

    Also would buy a smaller scope for my 22 mag rifle for fun.

    Recently bought the Kilo 1800 BDX Rangefinder, but don't have an accompanying scope. I can tell you I'm very impressed with the range of it. Farthest I was able to range was a shed at 1600 yards, which is way farther than I expected it to be able to do.

    I've watched the videos re: the scope/rangefinder system and its pretty slick. I wouldn't mind getting the whole setup but just can't justify the cost at the moment.

    No experience with the BDX system, but I recently picked up a KILO2000 range finder and I'm very impressed with it. Just walking around free handed and standing I've very quickly ranged houses at 1150-1200 in sure if I were to take some time and rest it on a pack or use both hands I could easily stretch the distance.

    The 6x glass is pretty good too, which dosen't hurt.

    Yeah.

    plan on putting my 25-06 into a Magpul hunter and topping with the sig 6-24 paired with a kilo2000.

    The bad thing is that it is my wife’s gun that I will borrow.

    My experience is limited to using one just long enough to get it mounted, and the guys gun sighted, but my opinion of the BDX system is that its GOOD.
    I found the glass quality on his 4.5-14 to be slightly below par for the 500 dollar class of scopes, and the crosshairs were thicker than I like. That said there had to be some cost-cutting somewhere, and I think cutting glass quality was probably a good choice. The system runs fast, and once set up correctly is very accurate from my experience. You probably wont notice it with the larger objective, but the bubble of the turret assembly is also noticeably larger than on other scopes meaning you need higher rings because they wont clear the average rail. Again a necessary evil to get the electronics in there, same for the crosshairs being thicker.

    Ive used a half dozen Kilo/bdx range finders as standalone and found them to be very effective units in and of themselves.

    Thanks for the info.

    I did expect the quality to take a hit somewhere. I am going to pull the trigger and hopefully it arrives before the hunt.
