That's more or less what I do... Develop a load, shoot it to validate solutions calculated by AB, twist turrets. Not running a BDX scope.Why not develop a load, shoot it to determine drops, make a chart and twist turrets? Maybe learn some stuff about ballistics. If you ask me, this stuff is getting out of hand. mtmuley
I've been researching these scopes as well, and I looked at several of the stated where I've hunted and so far, from what I read, allow it. Idaho DOES allow electric reticle scopes http://www.eregulations.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/IDBG.pdf, pg 98. bullet twoIdaho
While Idaho does allow electric/illuminated ret.

Help educate me. Where in the 2018-2019 Idaho regs does it say it is illegal because it does other things? Yes Oregon clearly spells it out. The Idaho regs I posted are their 2018-2019 and I have searched their regs using keywords like scope, electronic, communicate, range, finder, calculate and everything I find from these searches does not refer to the scope except for muzzle or archery. Where do I look to find the info you're saying they're illegal?
As you were replying, I re-read the regs. Yes it does cover what you're saying in a semi-generic sense. Oregon spells it out. If the Scope itself was the range finder then yes... I suppose it could be argued the electronic device is the reticle itself, turned on by the range finder or binocular... but its not worth risking to try it. Thanks for the info.This topic has been discussed on every hunting/shooting forum around. Everyone agrees Idaho is a no go. I know a rifle builder who contacted them and asked specifically just in case all the talk was wrong. Even sig lists Idaho as illegal on their site.
This right here seems to spell it out to me... ANY electronic device, EXCEPT one with illuminated reticle ONLY. Is this scope a electronic device? Yes. We all know that. It does/has a lot more then a battery powered illuminated reticle. Not trying to argue at all. We all have the right to question things. Just the facts, atleast the way I and most see them. If you want to disagree and run the risk. More power to ya. Hope the cop and judge buy the manipulating of words/regs.
