Nikon Unveils New P-223 Long Range Riflescope With Dual Ballistic Compensation

Nikon has expanded its line of precision optics for MSR platform rifles by adding a new magnification to the popular P-223 riflescope.  Now available in 4-12×40 with BDC 600 reticle, the new P-223 makes any AR rifle more effective at longer ranges.

The P-223 4-12×40 comes in matte finish and is built with Fully Multicoated lenses.  For the first time, one riflescope provides a choice between two different methods of bullet drop compensation.

One way to compensate for bullet drop at long ranges is by using the BDC 600 reticle with open circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards. The BDC 600 reticle was developed specifically for the trajectory of the .223 Rem. / 5.56 NATO round with 55-grain polymer tip bullet and is most effective when used with Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.

The other way to compensate for bullet drop is by using Nikon’s Rapid Action Turret system that allows shooters to dial in their distances and hold the BDC reticle’s horizontal crosshair directly on the target.  Distances as far as 100 to 600 yards can be dialed in, making the Rapid Action Turret system a quick and easy option for long range shooting.

There is now an added feature on the new P-223 that makes field adjustments easier than ever before.  With Nikon’s spring-loaded instant zero-reset turrets, just sight in at 100 yards, then lift the adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero,” and re-engage.  These turrets are set for precise ¼-inch adjustments and maintain their setting, even against repeated recoil.

The P-223 has a quick focus eyepiece to easily bring the reticle into focus.  It also provides a generous 3.7 inches of eye relief for safe, comfortable shooting.  The P-223 4-12×40 is waterproof, fogproof, and has an MSRP of $249.95.

Like all Nikon riflescopes, the P-223 is optimized for use with Spot On Ballistic Match Technology.  The Spot On program provides users with exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for any load or ammunition at a specified range.  Spot On is free online at nikonhunting.com/spoton but it can also be purchased for mobile devices, including the iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ platforms.

The P-223 is also compatible with Spot On Custom Turrets that allows shooters to order customized engraved turrets that are calibrated to match bullet drop for virtually any factory or custom handload. Spot On Custom Turrets make it easy to dial out to extended ranges and still keep your crosshairs centered on the target.  Order yours today at nikonhunting.com.

Nikon also offers the P-Series Mount that conveniently fits all P-223 riflescopes. Developed for Picatinny rails found on most flattop AR rifles, this two-piece design allows proper height and positioning of the scope, while its lightweight-but-strong alloy construction holds up under the most brutal conditions. The MSRP for the P-Series Mount is $49.95.

The P-223 3-9×40 features the patented Nikon BDC 600 reticle and tactical-style turrets with Zero-Reset feature to simplify field adjustments. Developed specifically for the trajectory of the .223 Rem /5.56 NATO round with 55-grain polymer tip bullet, at 3240 FPS the BDC 600 reticle offers shooters unique open circle aiming points and hash marks from 100 to 600 yards. MSRP for the P-223 3-9×40 is $199.95.

The P-223 3×32 Carbine is an incredibly compact optic designed specifically for fast-handling, shorter barrel ARs.

MSRP for the P-223 3×32 Carbine is $149.95.

Like all Nikon riflescopes, the P-223 is optimized for use with Nikon Spot OnTM Ballistic Match Technology.
