The M-223 4-16x42 AR riflescope, with a high magnification zoom range and locking side focus parallax adjustment lays down a serious power range for the most extreme long range shooting. Designed for ultimate shooting speed and accuracy, this new riflescope will help maximize the performance of an AR platform rifle and the .223 Remington round - from zero out to 600 yards.

The M-223 4-16x42 BDC 600 utilizes precise, tactical-style turrets with Zero-Reset feature to get zeroed-in quicker and maintain settings - even with repeated recoil. The BDC 600 reticle was developed specifically for the trajectory of the .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO round. It offers shooters unique open circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards. MSRP for the M-223 with BDC 600 reticle is $499.95.

The M-223 4-16x42 Nikoplex features tactical-style Rapid Action Turrets. This incredible new system, based on a .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO 55-grain polymer tipped bullet, at 3240 FPS allows shooters to dial-in elevation anywhere from 100 to 600 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. MSRP for the M-223 Nikoplex is $479.95.

Like all Nikon riflescopes, the M-223 is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On™ Ballistic Match Technology. The Spot On program provides users with exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for any load or ammunition at a specified range. Spot On can be purchased for iPhone and Android or tried out for free at nikonhunting.com/spoton.

The Nikon M-223 4-16x42 also includes the following features:

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
