Sig Sauer Electro-Optics Partners With Mission Crossbows for BDX Optics System

The combination of traditional riflescopes and ballistics technology has been one of Sig Sauer Electro-Optics' biggest breathroughs in the last two years, with its Ballistic Data Xchange optics system helping shooters and hunters at the range, in the field and elsewhere.

Now, crossbow shooters can take advantage of this cool technology with the addition of a scope for horizonal bows. Sig Sauer Electro-Optics has partnered with Mission Crossbows to offer the BDX riflescope.

Here is the news from Sig Sauer Electro-Optics:

Sig Sauer Electro-Optics has a new partnership with Mission Crossbows to bring the Ballistic Data Xchange Optics System to crossbow hunters and shooters with the addition of the compact SIERRA3BDX 2.5-8x32mm riflescope to the BDX line.

Now, all SIERRA3BDX series riflescopes have crossbow capabilities. However, the SIERRA3BDX 2.5-8x32mm ultralight riflescope is the perfect size, weight and magnification range for crossbow configurations, making it possible to reach well beyond 100 yards and engage targets with extreme precision.

The Sig Sauer Electro-Optics BDX System combines traditional hunting equipment with technology. BDX is a fully integrated rangefinder and riflescope system that utilizes Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Bluetooth. The free SIG BDX app for Android and iOS systems allows for crossbow ballistic profiles to be established. These profiles are then communicated via Bluetooth to any Sig Sauer KILO BDX rangefinder.

When targets are ranged, the crossbow ballistics are combined with distance to target, slope, temperature, and pressure to precisely calculate the shooting solution. This solution is displayed in the rangefinder and is also shared instantly with any SIERRA3BDX riflescope, instantly illuminating the exact holdover dot on the reticle in the riflescope.

“This is an exciting addition to the BDX line that expands the capabilities of the system by introducing the revolutionary technology of the Ballistic Data Xchange system to crossbow hunters,” said Andy York, President, Sig Sauer Electro-Optics. “Additionally, through this partnership with Mission Crossbows we were able to expand the functionality of the BDX app to allow for setup and ballistic calculations for various crossbow bolt weight and speed levels, with Crossbow-specific ballistic calculations. This would not have been possible without the knowledge and extensive research and development from the product experts at Mission Crossbows.”

Mission Crossbows is based in Sparta, Wisconsin.
