Cabela's BDC scope for a 45/70 Buffalo Classic

If anyone has this scope I would appreciate any feedback you can give. Thanks in advance.
Yesterday I bought the H&R Buffalo Classic 45/70 , today I bought the Cabela's BDC (Bullet Drop Compensator)scope designed for this rifle.It is a low end priced scope in 3X9 and 40 mm objective. The salesman at Cabela's stated the scope is designed for this gun with the Hornady Lever Revolution 325 gr bullet, HOWEVER- when you read the brochure that comes with the scope, it says the BDC dots are preset within the scope for 500 gr. bullets.
Has anyone any experience with the Hornady 325 ammo AND has this scope? If so, what have you found with the BDC and your actual experience with bullet drop as compared to the BDC. Knowing this may be a tall order, but hopeful there is someone out there that can shed some info. Thanks.
Same set up
I haven't sighted mine in yet, but my scope reads for the 325gr. bullet. Settings are 100, 200 and 300.
