The high magnification range zoom makes it the ideal optic for AR10 platforms.

Developed specifically for the trajectory of the .308 Winchester/7.62x51 NATO round with 168-grain hollow point boat-tail Match bullet, the new BDC 800 reticle offers shooters unique open circles, dots and hash marks from 100 to 800 yards.

The M-308 4-16x42 Nikoplex with Rapid Action Turret technology is an incredible new system based on the .308 Winchester/7.62x51 NATO round. It simply and effectively allows the shooter to dial-in elevation anywhere from 100 to 800 yards away in less than one revolution. Now it's possible to aim directly at the targets, eliminating the need to holdover by changing distances with a quick turn of the turret.

Included with either model is the new M-308 one-piece scope mount. With built-in 20 MOA slope, the M-308 mount enables extreme long-range shooting by adding 20 moa elevation adjustment to the overall system. Like all Nikon AR riflescopes, the M-308 is optimized for use with Nikon Spot OnTM Ballistic Match Technology. Spot On allows you to discover all of the exact aiming points on the BDC 800 reticle for your exact ammunition and load.

The Nikon M-308 4-16x42 also includes the following features:

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
