Choosing A Suitable Rifle Scope

by Razvan Marian on Jul 22, 2010

When planning to purchase a scope you need to think about the following issues: price range you can afford, durability of the scope, power settings, reticle, accessories, size of the objective and low light capabilities. With this article we will try to present each of these issues: a) Price range ”“ there are many scopes available for purchase starting from 100$ to thousands of dollars. Most likely, you will get a scope that has a price between 400$ and 1200$. Many people affirm you should spend at least as much on your scope as you do your rifle. There are plenty of good models out there in each price range. You have to decide on what price range you want while looking at the rest of the features. b) Durability ”“ regardless of the scope you plan on purchasing, you need to do some test with the adjustments. We recommend that you can shoot a square with it. It does not have to be perfect but shoot two shots afterwards move it left ten clicks, shoot two more. Next, move it up ten clicks, shoot two more. Move it right ten clicks, shoot two more. Lastly, move it down ten clicks and shoot two more. Your last two shots should be close to your first two. c) Power settings - If you just need to see the target whatever the distance a power setting not more than a 10-14x model for closer distances will do just fine. On the contrary, if you need to tell the difference between Buchie and Charlie before you put a bullet in him you might want a variable up to a 20 power. When choosing the power, you need to know that the higher the power, the more wind and mirage will distort the much important clarity. d) Reticle ”“ we recommend that you take a look at Leupold's reticle page to get a clearer image about what you are searching for. e) Accessories ”“ you have plenty of choices in this area: rings, scope covers, bases and many more. For a first time hunter, we recommend that you do not spend a lot of money on accessories. f) Size of the objective ”“ if you purchase a larger objective, you will have more light that you will be able to gather into the scope. If it is getting somewhat darker, the crosshairs inside a larger objective lens will be visible longer, giving you a strong advantage. It also is bigger so it raises the scope up above the barrel higher so you will need higher rings and a higher cheek piece. g) Low light capabilities ”“ you have a choice between ILR ”“ illuminated articles, night vision scopes and other NVD ”“ night vision devices. If you plan on purchasing a model that requires batteries, remember to purchase extra batteries so that you will not remain without power. As you can see, there are a lot of issues to be taken into consideration prior to purchasing a scope. Make sure that you take your time when selecting the suitable rifle scope because it plays a major part in your hunting adventure.
