The new AR Optics models perform on a variety of rifle platforms. The BDC turrets customize to use with either .223 Rem., .308 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor or .224 Valkyrie. Each riflescope comes with four ballistic drop turrets. Users simply match their riflescope to their preferred caliber.

The riflescopes come with the Throw Hammer Level for quick magnification changes. A durable one-inch tube and second focal plane reticle position highlight the system.

Fully multi-coated optics and extra low dispersion glass help provide bright, vivid images. With the addition of the 4.5-18x40mm models, the AR Optics line includes red dots, a 1-6x24mm and 1-8x24mm with illuminated BDC reticles. The riflescope models provide users with a wide variety of options when matching their optic of choice to their favorite caliber.

As long-range shooting competitions continue to gain in popularity, different competitive divisions emerge in which to compete. With the ability to match turret and reticle to one of four popular rifle calibers, the Bushnell AR Optics 4.5-18x40mm riflescopes become immediately competitive themselves.

Retail prices range fro $179.99 to $229.99. For more information, visit
