Is the circles on the BDC to big to reliably shoot coyotes out to 400 yds?

Here's a review I did on the BDC reticle. I think you'd be well served to use it with coyotes.

I agree--should be excellent for it. ID of a circle is 1.5 inch per hundred yds.--so at 400 it should be a little bigger than half the chest depth--hairline to hairline.

Hi,

This is my 1st post here, although I've been visiting frequently for some time now.  Theres just so much to learn.

Anyway WRT (with regards too) the Nikon BDC reticles, how visible are they during the early or late part of the day?  I'm planning on getting a Monarch in either 3-12x42 or 4-16x42 but iIm undecided on either a Mil-Dot or the BDC-reticle.  This scope will initially end up on a 17 HMR but ultimately will end up on either a 22-250, 220 Swift or 243 (depending on which flavor I decide). 

Thanks for your help and nice write ups.

Jim

I would rate the BDC reticle "workable" in low light. It's been used rather successfully by some big game hunters on this forum, but it is a wire and may fade more so than a etched #4.
