Maximize Your Slug Gun’s Long Range Performance
The new SlugHunter features several technology upgrades that will satisfy even the most demanding shotgun hunters. A bright new optical system, remarkable hand-turn reticle adjustments with Spring-Loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets, and a convenient quick-focus eyepiece make adjustments while in a shooting position a breeze. The SlugHunter 3-9x40 with BDC 200 reticle is an ideal fit for virtually any slug gun and can be used with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology to take the guesswork out of compensating for sabot/slug drop. With enough power for the longest-range shots and a wide field of view to keep you on close-in or moving game, you can count on the SlugHunter 3-9x40 in any situation. In addition SlugHunter scopes are built with fully multicoated optics for maximum light transmission, even in extreme low light environments.
Nikon’s Patented BDC 200 Reticle
This patented, trajectory-compensating reticle integrates unique, easy-to-see "ballistic circles" that provide instant aiming points–and take the guesswork out of holdover at longer ranges. This unique open circle design doesn’t obscure the sight picture and makes shots at distant or smaller targets easier. The BDC 200 is optimized for use with Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology to provide shooters with exact aiming points on the BDC 200 Reticle at different yardages and different loads.
Generous, Consistent 5-inch Eye Relief
Keeps your brow safe—even with heavy recoiling charges, lightweight rifles or severe shooting angles.
Fully Multicoated Optical System
Multiple layers of anti-reflective compounds on every glass surface provide bright and vivid sight pictures and optimum light transmission and maximum brightness from dawn to dusk.
Hand-turn 1/4 MOA Adjustments
Reticle adjustments are made in 1/4 MOA click-stop moves you can both feel and hear, and with no backlash to make your shot creep off target. Positive click reticle adjustments get you zeroed in quicker and maintain your setting—even with repeated recoil and under rugged conditions.
Spring-Loaded Zero-Reset Turrets
To simplify field adjustments, Nikon has integrated this feature into all new SlugHunter riflescopes. Just sight-in as usual, then lift the spring-loaded adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and re-engage. Field adjustments are now as simple as dialing-in your subsequent ranges.
Spot On Ballistic Match Technology
Custom precision at your fingertips
The SlugHunter, like all of Nikon’s riflescopes, is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Spot On allows you to discover all of the exact aiming points on your scope’s reticle at various yardages for your specific ammunition and load.
