Eagan, MN (September 2018) Precision shots require a precision reticle and accurate ballistic data, and Styrka has hunters covered on both counts. Styrka’s SH-BDC reticle and BDC Calculator work hand-in-hand to put hunters on target, time and again, at the range and in the field.
Styrka’s SH-BDC reticle is a Ballistic Drop Compensation, MOA-style reticle designed for hunting from 100 yards out to approximately 600 yards and offers hold-over points for most centerfire rifle calibers. The SH-BDC reticle also incorporates windage lines so wind speed and distance can be factored in at the same time.
The BDC reticles are offered in Styrka’s budget-friendly S3 line of scopes, the mid-priced S5 scopes, and Styrka’s top-of-the-line S7 models.
But before you take your Styrka-scoped rifle afield, access the Styrka Ballistic Calculator. The Calculator lets you easily determine the exact hold over points you need at specific ranges. Simply input data about your rifle, your ammunition and the distance at which the load was zeroed (usually 100 or 200 yards). The Calculator then automatically calculates the holds for each hold stadia on the SH-BDC reticle given that zero distance.
But there’s much more the Ballistic Calculator can do for you.
Let’s say you’re in your tree stand and that buck of a lifetime appears and begins feeding. Your rangefinder puts him at 318 yards. Quickly access the calculator and go to the Target Screen. Enter the 318 yards and, if necessary, other atmospheric conditions like wind speed and angle. Now, the Styrka Ballistic Calculator will provide the holdover you need to make this shot in inches, MOA or MILs.
The results page will even display your reticle with a red dot where you need to hold for that buck.
The Styrka Ballistic Calculator is available as an app for iOS and Android platforms; it can also be accessed as a web-based program from the Styrka website at www.styrkastrong.com.
When used in conjunction, the Styrka Ballistic Calculator and the SH-BDC reticle will give you the confidence to make your next shot, whether it is a relatively close one or a longer poke for that big buck.
Like all Styrka optics, the S3, S5, and S7 Rifle Scopes are covered by the “Styrka Pride” warranty. If you ever have a problem, your Styrka optic will be fixed or replaced. Forever. Plus, once a year, you can send back your optics and the company will clean and tune it as needed, all on Styrka’s tab.
