SIG Sauer BDX 2.0 Rangefinder and Riflescope System – First Look

SIG Sauer Electro-Optics announced its Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) Rangefinder and Riflescope System is now available in an upgraded 2.0 version.

SIG Sauer BDX 2.0 Rangefinder and Riflescope System – First Look

BDX 2.0 takes all the advanced Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth technology and adds simplified functionality to get hunters and shooters on target with unprecedented speed and accuracy. New features of BDX 2.0 include, nine pre-loaded, user-selectable Ballistic Drop Compensation (BDC) reticles in all SIERRA Riflescopes, eight ballistic groups pre-loaded in KILO BDX rangefinders and the QuickBOND feature that quickly bonds BDX rangefinders and scopes together as a ballistic system. The BDX 2.0 System is simple, fast, and intuitive – Just Connect The Dot.

“The BDX 2.0 system builds upon the success of BDX, adding simplified features and benefits, including the user selectable BDC reticles that allow hunters and shooters to engage targets out to 500 yards with their BDX system without using the smartphone app. All BDX 2.0 rangefinders and riflescopes are now pre-programmed with ballistic groups that cover most centerfire rifle cartridges, crossbows and muzzleloaders,” began Andy York, President, SIG SAUER, Electro-Optics. “This new BDX 2.0 adds a simplified layer that allows BDX users to get up and running quickly and then when they are ready to take the next step and unlock all of the advanced features and build more exacting ballistic profiles to dial in the next level of accuracy, the BDX smartphone app is just a download away.”

There are nine pre-established ballistic groups on SIERRABDX riflescopes featuring the Smart BDC reticle. Simply select the best group for your application from the included BDX 2.0 Card based on cartridge, muzzle velocity, and projectile weight. To select a group, follow the included instructions to set the scope using the riflescopes illumination dial and power selector ring. The blue BDX light will blink the same number of times as your chosen group number to confirm your BDC reticle setting. The reticle will display 5 active hold points, from zero out to 500 yards. To create a custom ballistic profile for your SIERRABDX Riflescope, just unlock the advanced features using the available BDX App. 

KILOBDX Rangefinders use the exact same ballistic groupings outlined on the BDX 2.0 Card. Simply select the best group for your application based on cartridge, muzzle velocity and projectile weight and follow the included instructions to set the rangefinder using the range and mode buttons on the rangefinder. If your KILO is bonded to a SIERRABDX, the KILO will use the measured range and your ballistic group to communicate the correct ballistic holdover to the bonded sight. To create a custom ballistic profile for your KILOBDX Rangefinder, just unlock the advanced features using the available BDX App. 


“We’ve even made it easy for current BDX users to obtain the 2.0 upgrade with a software update through the app, and the BDX 2.0 Card is easily available online at sigsauer.com,” continued York. “Whether you are new to BDX or you’ve been hunting and shooting with the system already, BDX 2.0 packs more features and innovation into our rangefinders and riflescopes and combines it all with a good measure of simplicity.”


All SIERRABDX Riflescopes, KILOBDX Rangefinders, and BDX Kits are currently shipping with the BDX 2.0 upgrade.

BDX Combo Kits including a KILOBDX Rangefinder and SIERRABDX Riflescope are also available, see retailers for details.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
