What You Need to Know About Rifle Scopes
Rifle scopes allow you to exactly align a rifle at different targets by lining up your eye with the target at range. They accomplish this through magnification by employing a series of lenses within the scope. The scope’s alignment can be adapted to account for different natural considerations like wind and elevation increases or decreases to make up for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to help the shooter understand precisely where the bullet will hit based upon the sight picture you are seeing through the optic as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the intended point of impact. A lot of modern rifle optics have about eleven parts which are located within and outside of the scope body. These optic pieces include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, windage and elevation turrets or dials, focus rings, and other parts. See all eleven parts of an optic.
Rifle Glass Types
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of optics. Going for the best type of rifle scope is based on what type of shooting you plan on doing.
Info About First Focal Plane Glass
Focal plane scopes (FFP) feature the reticle in front of the magnification lens. These kinds of scopes are beneficial for:
- Quick acquisition, long distance types of shooting
- Shooting situations where estimations are minimal
- Experienced shooters who recognize their aim point “hold over” plus “lead” correlations for their long guns
- Shooters who don’t mind the reticle is enlarged and requires more visual eyesight area than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Scopes
Second focal plane optics (SFP) feature the reticle to the rear of the zoom lens. This triggers the reticle to stay at the same dimensions in connection with the level of magnification being used. The outcome is that the reticle measurements alter based upon the magnification chosen to shoot over greater ranges because the markings represent various increments which vary with the magnification. In the FFP example with the SFP optic, the 5x “zoom” one hundred yard tick reticle measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement. These sorts of glass work for:
- Long distance kinds of shooting where shooters have extra time to make ballistic computations
- Shooting where most of the shots happen within shorter spaces and ranges
- Shooters who want a clearer optic sight picture with less area taken up by the larger sized FFP reticle
Magnification for Scopes
The amount of magnification a scope supplies is determined by the size, thickness, and curvatures of the lenses inside of the rifle scope. The magnification of the scope is the “power” of the scope.
Info About Fixed Single Power Lens Optics
A single power rifle scope and optic comes with a magnification number designator like 4×32. This means the magnification power of the scope is 4x power while the objective lens is 32mm. The magnification of this type of optic can not adjust considering that it is a fixed power scope.
Info on Adjustable Power Lens Scopes
Variable power rifle scopes use variable power levels. The power adjustment is achieved by making use of the power ring part of the scope near the back of the scope by the eye bell.
Rifle Scope Power Level and Ranges
Here are some recommended scope power settings and the ranges where they could be effectively used. High power glass will not be as efficient as lower magnification rifle scope glass due to the fact that too much zoom can be a negative aspect depending on your shooting distance. The same applies to extended ranges where the shooter needs adequate power to see exactly where to properly aim the rifle.
Lens Covering for Glass
All top of the line rifle scope lenses are layered. Lens finish is a significant aspect of a shooting platform when buying high end rifle optics and scope equipment.
HD Versus ED Lenses
Some scope manufacturers likewise use “HD” or high-definition lens finishings which use various procedures, chemicals, polarizations, and aspects to draw out various colors and viewable quality through the lens. Some scope manufacturers use “HD” to refer to “ED” implying extra-low dispersion glass.
Single Covering Versus Multi-Coating
Various optic lenses can also have various finishings used to them. All lenses normally have at least some type of treatment or coating applied to them before they are used in a rifle scope or optic.
This lens treatment can protect the lens from scratches while minimizing glare and other less advantageous things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single coated lens depends on the scope producer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope manufacturers likewise make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are layered or “multi” covered. This implies the lens has had several treatments applied to the surfaces of the glass. If a lens gets multiple treatments, it can establish that a company is taking several actions to fight various natural aspects like an anti-glare coating, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion coating, followed by a hydrophilic covering. This additionally does not necessarily suggest the multi-coated lens is better than a single layered lens. Being “better” depends upon the maker’s lens treatment techniques and the quality of products used in constructing the rifle optic.
Glass Lens Anti-water Finishing
Water on a lens does not assist with preserving a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Numerous top of the line and military grade optic companies will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic anti-water coating.
Options for Mounting Rifle Glass on Firearms
Installing approaches for scopes can be found in a couple of options. There are the standard scope rings which are separately mounted to the optic and one-piece scope mounts which cradle the scope. These various kinds of mounts also usually are made in quick release versions which use manual levers which enable rifle shooters to rapidly install and dismount the glass.
Rifle Optic Mounting Solutions with Hex Key Rings
Standard, clamp design mounting scope rings use hex head screws to mount to the flattop design Picatinny scope installation rails on rifles. These types of scope mounts use two different rings to support the optic, and are made from 7075 T6 billet aluminum which are developed for long range precision shooting. This type of scope install is fine for rifles which require a durable, rock solid mounting solution which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abuse the rifle takes.
Quick-Release Cantilever Rifle Optic Ring Mounting Solutions
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly remove a scope and connect it to a different rifle. Several scopes can even be switched out if they all use a compatible style mount. These types of mounts are handy for long guns which are carried a lot, to remove the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for scopes which are used between multiple rifles or are situationally focused.
Sealing and Gas Purging for Rifle Optic Tubes
Wetness inside your rifle scope can mess up a day of shooting and your costly optic by bringing about fogging and developing residue inside of the scope tube. Many scopes avoid wetness from getting in the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are waterproof.
Rifle Scope Gas Purging
Another part of preventing the accumulation of wetness within the rifle optic tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Since this space is currently occupied by the gas, the scope is less impacted by temperature level shifts and pressure distinctions from the external environment which may possibly permit water vapor to leak in around the seals to fill the vacuum which would otherwise be there. These are good qualities of a decent rifle scope to look for.
