Sig Sauer Kilo3000 BDX - new high-performance ballistic laser binocular
New Sig Sauer Kilo3000 BDX binocular with integrated laser and ballistic calculator is optimal package many ways and also for many uses: for hunting where absolute precision is needed - such as precise bird hunting shots. Or longer ranges with bigger game. Also for mountain hunting with steep angles effecting ballistics, Kilo3000 ballistic engine will provide instant compensation for it too. All user need to do is to look target with binoculars, press button and read needed drop + windage solution instantly from binocular screen or phone app. App also fetches environmental information from nearest online point automatically, so both temperature and altitude are compensated for best precision automatically. Sig Sauer BDX system is using Applied Ballistics engine, so its accuracy does not leave much room for improvement - and even more importantly, bullet library is very good with proven G7 ballistic coefficient values.
Sig Sauer BDX application, as seen on test video below, is free to download and use. It is also available for both Android and iOS. Note also that Kilo3000 is part of BDX (Ballistic Exchange) product family. Kilo3000 laser can be connected to BDX riflescope too directly: scope will show correct ballistic aiming points inside scope reticle automatically. Very much similar way with Swarovski 5-25 dS digital scope.
Only ballistic limitation is maximum range. Sig has limited ballistic range to 800yds or 732m - but naturally both range and angle can be measured beyond this point. If Kilo3000 binocular is paired to feed distance + angle value to certain Applied Ballistics systems, there is no max range limitation. Kestrel 5700 Elite is one, also available in our webshop. Sig Sauer Kilo3000 does not include compass, so multiple target engagement in wide sector requires user changing relative wind direction from phone app wind clock. This may matter to some who do not want to use phone in such situation. For those, solution is Vectronix Terrapin X laser range finder which can send angle, but also measured target direction to Kestrel 5700 - new wind angle updated to ballistic solution automatically.
Kilo3000 performance is solution for serious long range shooters who need to measure far. Really far. +700m precice ballistics range covers virtually all possible hunting situations specially hunters who want precise ballistics easy way. Ballistic range is also sufficient for most 5.56 rifles, as well as 7.62 rifles with short barrel. Kilo3000 perform even up to extremely long ranges +2000m or even +3000m - without need to sell kidney(s). Longest measured distance to woodline in video below is about 3400m. Even further with white windmill.
