Patent-pending Bolt Drop Compensating (BDC) reticle allows for phenomenal accuracy at long distances.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Kruger Optical invites crossbow enthusiasts to check out the new Kruger XBow-100TM crossbow scope, which will be introduced at the 2018 SHOT Show. The new 1-4×24 scope will be among the products featured in Booth 331 at the SHOT Show, Jan. 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
The scope was developed in response to growing interest in crossbow shooting, said Kruger Optical President Mark Thomas. With the development of increasingly accurate high-end crossbows, demand has grown for high-performance optics to mount on them. Kruger developed the XBow-100 to enable archers to shoot with even greater accuracy.
“There is nothing like this available on the market,” Thomas said. “This product allows the serious cross- bow shooter to shoot more accurately and at longer distances.”
The new scope features a patent-pending Bolt Drop Compensation (BDC) reticle. This reticle allows shooters to take bolt weight into account when estimating the impact point, in addition to bolt speed and distance.
The reticle shows impact points for different yardages and bolt weights. A patent-pending Vernier scale on the FPS (feet per second) adjustment ring allows the user to make additional accommodations for changes in bolt speeds. The scope can account for bolt speeds of between 250 and 450 feet per second.
Shooters will also appreciate the scope’s extra-wide field of view, which will help them to quickly and easily find their targets. Field of view ranges from 31.1 feet at 100 yards at 4-power to 124.5 feet at 100 yards at 1-power.
“The system has superb field of view for quick acquisition of game,” Thomas said.
The reticle is illuminated, and the optics are fully coated for superior light transmission. Overall it is compact and lightweight, with generous eye relief. It’s also waterproof and fogproof, making it an excellent choice for any weather.
Product features include:
• Bolt Drop Compensating reticle
• Can be calibrated for bolt speeds of 250-450 feet per second.
• 3.75-inch eye relief
• Length: 11 inches. Weight: 16 oz.

Kruger anticipates that the scopes will be available to key dealers and retailers during the spring of 2018.
