Just in time for Spring 2010 turkey seasons, Nikon introduces the new 1.65-5×36 mm TurkeyPro Shotgun Scope with Ballistic Turkey Reticle, available in Realtree APG, Mossy Oak Break Up or matte black to match your shotgun’s finish.
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 lets you 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 lets you still “see” the exact target spot, even on low power.
The TurkeyPro also features a removable Anti-Reflective Device, 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 of 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 you can comfortably and safely mount this scope on even the hardest-kicking magnum shotguns. With a super-bright exit pupil of 7.2 mm and Nikon’s multicoated lens, you can hunt right up to roost time. The durable 1-inch tube features hand turn 1/4-MOA adjustment and a 50-yard parallax setting. Multicoated lens provide 92 percent light transmission for excellent low-light performance.
