The Nitro series is Bushnell’s top line of optics, and the new Nitro 1800 uses Applied Ballistics to provide ballistic data to 800 yards. When paired with a smartphone, the unit is upgradeable to over 2,000 yards with range and data input.
With ballistics data, the rangefinder provides holdovers, wind adjustment and other factors to maintain accuracy. The Nitro 1800 is Bluetooth compatible and operates through the Bushnell Ballistic app on your Apple or Android cell phone or Kestrel unit.
The rangefinder utilizes ARC technology for angle compensation, and updates the range reading four times per second, even on scan mode. There are selectable reticle options (select circle/dot, dot only or circle only), and the unit includes two modes: Brush and Bullseye. Brush mode ignores foreground objects—brush, tree branches, etc.—and provides distances to background objects only. Bullseye mode acquires the distances of small targets without inadvertently measuring background object distances.
The unit's larger objective lens increases brightness and clarity and an EXO barrier coating bonds to exterior lens surfaces, and repels water, oil, fog, dust and debris.
