The new BTR reticle is designed to work as a ranging tool as well as an aiming device. The BTR's circle within a circle construction allows shooters to use convergence to know when a turkey steps into range. Hunters simply place the small circle, on low power, or the large circle, on high power, to cover or subtend the turkey from head to wattles at 40 yards. The center circle acts as the aiming point and allows the shooter to still "see" the exact target spot even on low power.
The innovations with this turkey scope don't stop with the reticle system. The TurkeyPro also features a removable Anti-Reflective Device (ARD), a first for turkey hunters. "Using an ARD in a turkey-specific scope is a first but it makes perfect sense given a turkey's amazing eyesight and spooky nature," said Jon Allen, General Manager Nikon Sport Optics. "The new TurkeyPro uses input from some of the country's best turkey hunters and is the first scope to combine all those years of experience into one scope."
Five full inches of eye relief means hunters can comfortably and safely mount this scope on even the hardest kicking magnum shotguns. With a super bright exit pupil of 7.2mm and Nikon's multicoated lens you can hunt right up to roost time. The durable one-inch tube features hand turn ¼-MOA adjustment and a 50-yard parallax setting. Multicoated lens provide 92% Light Transmission for excellent low light performance.
The new TurkeyPro BTR is available in Realtree APG or Mossy Oak Breakup with a MSRP of $279.95 or in a matte finish with an MSRP of $249.95. All feature the new Ballistic Turkey Reticle and will be available in plenty of time for spring 2010 hunting seasons.
