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 settings0151—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 AR riflescopes, the M-223 4-16x42 is optimized for use with Nikon Spot OnTM Ballistic Match Technology.  Spot On allows you to see how your exact ammunition and load will perform at various shot distances before you ever pull the trigger.  Take advantage of the Spot On program for free at nikonhunting.com/spoton.
