We just received an announcement from Sig Sauer regarding their revised BDX 2.0 line. Below is Sig’s press release:

Sig BDX 2.0

SIG SAUER Introduces BDX 2.0: Simple, Easy to Use, and Ready to Go Right Out-of-the-Box 

NEWINGTON, N.H., (January 17, 2020) – SIG SAUER Electro-Optics is pleased to announce the award-winning Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX™) Rangefinder and Riflescope System is now available in an upgraded 2.0 version.  BDX 2.0 takes all of the advanced Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth™ technology and adds simplified, and easy to use, functionality to get hunters and shooters on target with unprecedented speed and accuracy.  New features of BDX 2.0 include, nine pre-loaded, user-selectable Ballistic Drop Compensation (BDC) reticles in all SIERRA Riflescopes, eight ballistic groups pre-loaded in KILO BDX rangefinders and the QuickBOND™ feature that quickly bonds BDX rangefinders and scopes together as a ballistic system.  The BDX 2.0 System is simple, fast, and intuitive – Just Connect The Dot.™ 
“The BDX 2.0 system builds upon the success of BDX, adding simplified features and benefits, including the user selectable BDC reticles that allow hunters and shooters to engage targets out to 500 yards with their BDX system without using the smartphone app.  All BDX 2.0 rangefinders and riflescopes are now pre-programmed with ballistic groups that cover most centerfire rifle cartridges, crossbows and muzzleloaders,” began Andy York, President, SIG SAUER, Electro-Optics.  “This new BDX 2.0 adds a simplified layer that allows BDX users to get up and running quickly and then when they are ready to take the next step and unlock all of the advanced features and build more exacting ballistic profiles to dial in the next level of accuracy, the BDX smartphone app is just a download away.”
There are nine pre-established ballistic groups on SIERRABDX riflescopes featuring the Smart BDC™ reticle.  Simply select the best group for your application from the included BDX 2.0 Card based on cartridge, muzzle velocity, and projectile weight.  To select a group follow the included instructions to set the scope using the riflescopes illumination dial and power selector ring.  The blue BDX light will blink the same number of times as your chosen group number to confirm your BDC reticle setting.  The reticle will display 5 active hold points, from zero out to 500 yards. To create a custom ballistic profile for your SIERRABDX Riflescope, just unlock the advanced features using the available BDX App. 
KILOBDX Rangefinders use the exact same ballistic groupings outlined on the BDX 2.0 Card.  Simply select the best group for your application based on cartridge, muzzle velocity and projectile weight and follow the included instructions to set the rangefinder using the range and mode buttons on the rangefinder.  If your KILO is bonded to a SIERRABDX, the KILO will use the measured range and your ballistic group to communicate the correct ballistic holdover to the bonded sight.  To create a custom ballistic profile for your KILOBDX Rangefinder, just unlock the advanced features using the available BDX App. 
“We’ve even made it easy for current BDX users to obtain the 2.0 upgrade with a software update through the app, and the BDX 2.0 Card is easily available online at sigsauer.com,” continued York.  “Whether you are new to BDX or you’ve been hunting and shooting with the system already, BDX 2.0 packs more features and innovation into our rangefinders and riflescopes and combines it all with a good measure of simplicity.”
All SIERRABDX Riflescopes, KILOBDX Rangefinders, and BDX Kits are currently shipping with the BDX 2.0 upgrade.

Details on Sig’s new Electro-Optics Line

Sig Electro-Optics

We visited Sig Sauer’s Range Day event this morning and had the opportunity to handle some of the new 2015 releases and we were as excited about the new optics as we were about the new firearms.

We saw a number of the new rifle scopes and reflex sights on various weapons (photos from the range will be coming soon) but we were also able to pick up a new catalog to gather all the essential details on the line of scopes.

I lost count of the total number of possible SKU’s in the Electro-Optics line but there should be more than 70 total SKU’s when you factor in the various models, focal lengths, and reticles.

Sig is offering a lifetime warranty on the whole new line of Electro-Optics! The warranty is fully transferrable and doesn’t require a receipt or warranty card. See more details at the end of this post.
