Without question, that scope does not exist. What you describe is a rifle scope, but then it's all relative. No crossbow scope will ever compare to a B&L 4200 or a Vari X III. Pick them all up and check them out in. The best thing about the Excal scopes is their warranty. Probably the best in the industry.

Wide field of view at 10 yards? I question the need of any rifle type scope with magnificationto be used atcrossbow hunting shotranges of 30 to 35 yards. Looking through a scope with magnification at 10 yards in very low light conditions IMHO is, to a certain extent, a handicap. Keep in mind we are not talking about a 75to 100 yard shot across a field. In very close range low light shooting conditions,a zero magnification reflex sight with adjustable intensityilluminateddot is a good as it gets (shooting with both eyes open). With both eyes open, FOV is not an issue, both eyes are seeing the same image so depth perception and target acquisition are as good as it gets and you save a substantial amount of uneeded weight in the process. Holding on target is also easier with zero magnification when taking off hand hunting shots.

Do you guys think the Nikon with the BDC would work good?

In my opinion one of the best scopes for this application is the 1.5 X 6 36mm B&L 4200. It is super bright and at 1.5 the field of view is very wide. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is eye relief critical.

Crazy question. . .but how much do you guys value the lit reticle. It is ok, but I find myself not needing this feature. For me, it adds minimal value. I do prefer reticle sights over dot sights. If my battery dies, or it is off, I can still shoot.
