Guys, help me out with this as I'm somewhat confused. I have a Marlin 30-30. It currently has a Bushnell Trophy 3-9x40. My next project is to rescope her with something that has better glass. I'm thinking I want a BDC on this scope to take advantage of Hornady's Lever Revolution ammo. Will one company's BDC work better than another? Will I just have to get custom turrets on whatever scope I choose? Help---Bboy623

Don't get the cabelas version of the BDC scope.  That is one big time POS.  One of the crappiest scopes I have ever owned.
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

Hawke optic has the map 6 and map 8 reticles.... I dont have any personal experience with them, but have heard some good reviews.   ........And of course, you know I cant resist the oppurtunity to pick at you a little and suggest the Burris ballistic plex! HEHEHE.........Speedy

Tman---I guess I should clarify and explain that I don't mind a joke or even getting picked on. But I have no clue as to what you are referring to----Bboy623

Bboy.... I was just messin with ya for disagreeing with me in your other post the other day about what is the best scope, when I mentioned the FF2... so, my above post was meant in good humor in regards to that. It was NOT my intent to offend you, and if I did, Im sorry!
