    Scope that changes reticle for internally for compensation for bullet drop.

    There is a scope on the market that supposedly has a electronic system in the scope that changes the reticle inside the scope to compensate for bullet drop at long ranges. It works with an App in conjunction with a smart phone.

    Anybody heard of this? Who makes it?

    Jackie,

    There is one system that is made in Austin with similar capability you described, it may not be what you are looking for. Take a look at this one.

    Sig BDX Combo (Ballistic Data Exchange)

    I think this combo may be what your referring to... They have an app for the phone that works in conjunction with the range finder. Reportedly you just range your target and the BDC dot in the scope adjusts accordingly.

    Sig Saur Sierra 3 BDX

    Sig Saur Sierra 3 BDX.......It pairs smart phone and range finder data via Blue Tooth to adjust the scope aiming point.

    That's' it, the Sig unit.

    An old friend called and asked about this, if I knew how accurate it was.

    I told him I would ask. The main concern would be the resolution. In other words, just how accurate is the Verticle compensation at long ranges. 1 Moa? 1/2 Moa? 1/4 Moa?

    It's called a disturbed reticle. It's been in the works for the military for a number of years. Sig's cracked the civilian nut. There is also work going on to incorporate a rangefinder inside the scope. Point, push a button, hold, pull the trigger. Atmospherics conditions fed by wi-fi.

    I'm waiting for a reticle you can "write on",

    in other words a bullet drop compensator where you put "400"-"500"-"600" etc where your load hits

    And re-write it or change it as needed.

    Not anything to do with Jackie’s post, but I recently had a custom turret made for a Leupold Vari-X3 CDS scope and gave it a workout Tuesday shooting prairie dogs. It worked pretty well. I chronographed how fast my loads were going with a Labradar. Measured the height of the scope from the centerline to centerline from scope to bore and filled in all the other information they needed on Leupold online form. They will make one custom turret for the CDS scopes at no charge. I was shooting a .223. Josh was ranging prairie dogs with a laser rangefinder and spotting. Then we’d switch off and he’d shoot and I’d spot. With a 200 yard zero, I ran it up to 600 yards and it was pretty well on vertically. Didn’t hit any prairie dogs at that distance, but sure made them hit their holes. A little too much wind for a .223 at that distance. Worked the turret out pretty well going up and down. It sure was a fun and good way of shooting prairie dogs.

    Have we not come a long way?

    When I was a teenager, in the late ‘50s and a young gun nut, I read somewhere the definition of a good marksman was someone who could consistently hit a target of unknown size at an unknown distance.

    I am sure this was written by an older shooter who had heard this repeated by an even older shooter. Now that I am an old gun nut and still learning, I have to wonder, have we lost something?

    sort of...humans have not kept up with gun improvements.
    we now have rifle matches at TWO MILES.
    we have smart scopes
    range finders
    and rifles much better than the past
    the weak link..the trigger puller..seldom takes the time to learn how to really use the tools

    A friend of mine has one of these https://www.eurooptic.com/barrett-bors.aspx he's used to shoot coyotes at retarted distances. He expects one-shot kills out to 800yds.... just point and shoot.

    The future is coming fast!

    I can remember the first microwave oven that I ever saw, it was the size of a refrigerator. I can remember the first nail gun, it shot small tee shaped things that served as nails. Now we have range adjusting rifle scopes. These things will make us happy.

    It won’t be long before we have guided bullets for our rifles. They will be costly but they will be a great help in long range shooting and they will also make us happy.

    Don’t laugh.

    Toung firmly in cheek.
