    NEWINGTON, N.H., (May 4, 2018) – The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics division today unveiled their all new Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) rangefinders and riflescopes with integrated Applied Ballistics® and wireless Bluetooth® technology. This groundbreaking BDX technology enables interoperability and key ballistic holdover information to be exchanged wirelessly between SIG SAUER BDX Electro-Optics products. The foundation of the BDX system was designed for simplicity and ease of use. SIG SAUER BDX requires no new learning, and uses the same tools hunters and shooters have been using for years.

    How does BDX work? The BDX rangefinder and riflescope system is simple, fast, and intuitive. Simply download the “SIG BDX” app available for Android or iOS smartphones, pair the KILO BDX rangefinder and SIERRA3BDX riflescope, set up a basic ballistic profile, and then you’re ready to shoot or hunt. Once you are in the field, range your target as you normally would, and the KILO BDX rangefinder will utilize onboard Applied Ballistics Ultralight™ to instantly send your dope to the scope via Bluetooth. Using your basic ballistic profile the ballistic solution is calculated for your target and will instantly illuminate on the BDX-R1 Digital Ballistic Reticle with windage and elevation holds in the SIERRA3BDX riflescope. A blue LED on the riflescope power selector indicates that the BDX system is paired, and when the reticle has received new ballistic holdover and windage data from the rangefinder.



    “Rangefinding riflescopes of the past have had two major shortcomings: they are either big, boxy and heavy, or extremely expensive,” said Andy York, president, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “The revolutionary and affordable BDX system packs advanced ballistics technology into a simple platform that looks just like the rangefinder and riflescope that every hunter is using today. It is extremely simple to use; range a target, put the digital ballistic holdover dot on target, pull the trigger, impact. Incredibly accurate and extremely simple, just connect the dot.”





    The BDX family of rangefinders includes: KILO1400BDX, KILO1800BDX, KILO2200BDX, KILO2400BDX, and KILO3000BDX rangefinder binocular. These rangefinders include many of the legacy features that the KILO name was built on: Lightwave DSP™ digital rangefinder engine, Hyperscan™ with 4 times per second scan rate, RangeLock™, and the Lumatic™ auto-adjusting display.



    KILO BDX Rangefinders starting at $299.99 MSRP
    SIERRA3BDX Riflescopes starting at $599.99 MSRP



    Available at dealers July, 2018.

    Will my SK2400AB work with this scope?

    Why do they make Doc stand in a hole in all these videos?

    I try to let the parent companies of the products do most of the work ;)

    As for your question on the 2400ABS you will need to direct that here: 603.610.3000, option 1

    Very interesting system. Does it accept wind calls too or you just hold for wind, or link up to your blue tooth kestrel also or ...? For some competitions you don’t have time to range between shots. It would be a good add if the system would let you enter multiple ranges and then click through them as needed.

    Yes you can enter multiple ranges or you can input custom MOA/Mil drop points.

    Yes you can do wind.

    Could you explain what this does without all the marketing speak? I read it twice and still don’t really understand what exactly the system does for the user.

    Range a target with a compatible range finder, and the scope can give you a single point of hold for that target. Or the scope can give you a BDC reticle that you customize in the app. Set the yardage for each dot, or set the moa/mil you want each dot to appear at. The system has a sensor in the mag ring that moves the dots to always be within 1/6th - 1/10th (depending on scope and magnification) of an moa or mil of the calculated firing solution.
