SIG Sauer Electro-Optics SIERRA6BDX Riflescope – First Look

SIG Sauer Electro-Optics introduced the addition of the SIERRA6BDX super zoom riflescope line to the Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) family of products.

SIG Sauer Electro-Optics SIERRA6BDX Riflescope – First Look

The SIERRA6BDX riflescopes bring the advanced and streamlined features of BDX 2.0 to a premium super zoom HDX optic. Designed for hunters by hunters, the SIERRA6BDX has been optimized for every rifle and ammunition, but also works exceptionally well on the new Sig Sauer CROSS rifle platform with Sig Sauer hunting Elite Hunter ammunition.    

“Our mission with the new SIERRA6BDX riflescope line was to bring all of the advanced features of the BDX 2.0 platform to a premium 6X zoom system,” said Andy York, President, SIG Sauer Electro-Optics. “These scopes feature HDX high transmission and high definition optical design, 6X magnification ranges, up to 95% light transmission, thinner Digital Focal Plane BDX-R2 hunting reticle with 194 LEDs with wind holds, and up to 30 yards of Bluetooth range to BDX connected rangefinders.”

The SIG Sauer Electro-Optics BDX System combines traditional hunting equipment with technology. BDX 2.0 takes all of the advanced Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth technology and adds simplified, and easy to use, 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 allows for quick bonding of BDX rangefinders and scopes without the use of a smartphone app. The BDX 2.0 System is simple, fast, and intuitive – Just Connect The Dot.

The SIG Sauer Eletro-Optics SIERRA6BDX family of riflescopes is available in 3 different zoom ranges, 5-30x56mm, 3-18x44mm, and 2-12x40mm. Each features the SmartBDX reticle technology with up to 95% light transition. Other innovative features include KinETHIC, Kinetic Energy Transfer Indicator for ethical shots on target, and LevelPlex, an internal digital level which allows users to eliminate cant in their shooting system.

On the other hand, faster rates could over-stabilize lighter bullets. This is correct in theory, however, modern ballisticians have all but debunked the over-stabilization theory. All things being equal, it is better to have too much twist than not enough. How-To
