A few days ago, I wrote a post explaining why I don’t care for BDC style reticles. Figured I’d take the opposite approach and attempt to explain why I like Christmas tree reticles so much.
I’ve found bullet drop compensation, or BDC, reticles to be a really neat concept. Paired with the right rifle and ammo combination they really shine at letting the shooter engage multiple targets quickly. Even so, I still don’t like them.
I recently learned about SOCOM’s latest Advanced Sniper Rifle and the three cartridges that the rifle will support. Like any other avid ballistics nerd, I couldn’t resist comparing the ballistics between the 308 Win, 300 Norma Mag, and the 338 Norma Mag.
