There is one thing that most predator hunters will agree upon, that being a hunters firearm must always be dead on and ready to make a shot when the next coyote, bobcat or fox comes within range. Another thing that most hunters will agree on is that they don’t want to waste ammunition trying to sight in a new firearm or keeping one in line, they want the process of sighting in a firearm to be fast so that every spare moment can be spent hunting. The Axeon Second Zero does all that and more.
Shooters typically zero their rifles with one consistent load at a known distance. A 3×9 scope dialed in at 100 yards makes a rifle a versatile hunting tool. However, what happens when a coyote breaks through the hedgerow more than 300 yards out?
While most predator hunters are well versed in ballistics and bullet drop, many don’t readily keep that information accessible or can recall in that short moment when a predator comes charging into a call. The Axeon Second Zero offers a simple solution that eliminates the need for hold-over. There is no complex math involved. Simply flip down the Second Zero, put the crosshairs on the predator and pull the trigger.
The Second Zero, is a patented prism driven optical device, that will help the way predator hunters achieve accuracy at long distances. The system mounts forward of a traditional scope or other optic. Optics function normally when the Second Zero is not being used. When engaged, the prism of the Second Zero, which can be selected based on a hunter’s specific round, shifts the image to compensate for bullet drop. Simply place the crosshairs on the target as you would at 100 yards.
With the Axeon Second Zero mounted optic zeroed at 100 yards, the Second Zero will allow for an additional zero at a range of between 300-350 yards depending on the specific round. Compensating for the difference on targets between 100 and 320 yards is elemental.
The Second Zero is the fastest way to compensate for bullet drop at extended range. This means knowing quickly, what ones firearm will do without having to waste ammunition.
Mounting the Second Zero is simple. Attach it to the bell of a scope, or install it on available rail space in front of an optic on a MSR. The prismatic lens shifts the optical image without magnification, so the size of the target doesn’t change.
Because it shifts the target image optically (not mechanically) before a targeting device “sees” that image, the shift works in when paired with any optic.
No more guessing what ones firearm will do when a predator is at a long distance debating on whether to come closer. With the help of the Second Zero, predator hunters will always be ready.
