I've been trying to find a drop chart posted for the BDC reticle. I'm contemplating on buying a 3x12 42 w/ BDC for my 270 WSM. I'm wondering where my point of impact will be in relation with the circles on the BDC w/ this caliber. This gun is an extremely flat shooter and I'm kind of thinking I may need to go with the Nikoplex instead and just sight in about 2 in high at 100 yards and go from there. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks

With the BDC it works best with a bullet traveling around 3000 FPS.

 

I have one on a 300 win mag and it is right on. I love it.

 

 From me looking at the ballistics of the 270 wsm with a 140 gr BT I think it would work out nice for you. And a 500yard shot would be rather easy with it.

 

Do a search for the BDC under the search function and there is a scamatic of the BDC drawn out to scale of drop.

 

I feel it would work nicely for the gun your useing it for.

You can "split the circles" to aquire your POA and POI.
 
My .308 below was about 3" high holding on the second circle @ 300 yards. Split the circle and shot a decent 3 shot group at 300 yards.

I have never dealt with the nikon, but I turn the magnification ring on my Zeiss Rapid-z scope to make the appropriate marks hit where they are supposed to. The rapid-z 800 is ideal for a .270 wsm. Good luck with your new scope

I've compared the Nikon 3x12 42 SF to the Zeiss Conquest 3.5x10 44 about 50 times and I believe I've decided on the Conquest with the Z Plex reticle. I just love the reticle too much. I still might buy a Nikon with BDC in the future for a 30-06 that I have. I think the Zeiss will do the 270 WSM just fine!
