Sig Sauer’s latest innovation, the Ballistic Data Xchange Rangefinder and Riflescope System, is headed to dealers just in time for hunting season.

The BDX system, launched at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting in May 2018, is a rangefinder and riflescope pairing that utilizes ballistics and environmental conditions in addition to Bluetooth to illuminate the holdover dot.

Users are required to download the Sig BDX app and then pair the Kilo BDX Rangefinder and Sierra3BDX Rifelscope to the app. From there, users input a ballistic profile. Out in the field, hunters range the target and place the ballistic holdover dot on the intended target, pull the trigger and take down their prey.

Sierra3BDX riflescopes come in a variety of styles to include 3.5-10x42mm, 4.5-14x44mm, 4.5-14x50mm, and 6.5-20x52mm. Though they offer a techy approach, the scopes look and feel just like traditional riflescopes. “The BDX System is simple, fast, and intuitive – just Connect The Dot,” Sig Sauer said in a news release.

The system also comes equipped with what the company terms KinETHIC — a feature that indicates when energy on a target drops below a certain threshold. KinETHIC is designed to help hunters achieve an ethical hunt. The feature can be activated and set through the BDX app.

The BDX System is now available with a MSRP ranging from $699 to $1,399.
