Rifle scopes permit you to exactly align a rifle at various targets by lining up your eye with the target at range. They accomplish this through magnification by using a series of lenses inside the scope. The scope’s alignment can be adjusted for the consideration of many ecological aspects like wind speed and elevation increases or decreases to account for bullet drop.
The scope’s function is to help the shooter understand precisely where the bullet will land based upon the sight picture you are seeing with the scope as you line up the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. Most contemporary rifle optics have about eleven parts which are arranged internally and outside of the scope. These parts consist of the rifle scope’s body, lenses, elevation dials or turrets, objective focus rings, and other elements. See all eleven parts of a scope.
Rifle Scope Varieties
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of optics. Selecting the optimal type of rifle scope is based around what type of shooting you plan to do.
First Focal Plane Scopes
Focal plane scopes (FFP) include the reticle in front of the magnification lens. These kinds of scopes are helpful for:
- Quick acquisition, far away types of shooting
- Shooting scenarios where computations are small
- Experienced shooters who know their target “hold over” as well as “lead” equations for their firearm
- Shooters who do not mind the reticle is bigger and takes up more visual eyesight space than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Scope Details
Second focal plane optics (SFP) feature the reticle to the rear of the magnification lens. In the FFP example with the SFP scope, the 5x “zoom” one hundred yard tick reticle measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick.
- Far away kinds of shooting where shooters have additional time to make ballistic calculations
- Shooting where most shots occur within shorter spaces and ranges
- Shooters who prefer a clearer optic sight picture with less area used up by the larger size FFP reticle
Rifle Optic Zoom
The quantity of magnification a scope supplies is figured out by the diameter, thickness, and curvatures of the lenses inside of the rifle scope. The zoom of the scope is the “power” of the scope.
Fixed Power Lens Scopes
A single power rifle scope and optic comes with a zoom 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 scope can not change given that it is set from the factory.
Variable Power Lens Rifle Optic Details
Variable power rifle scopes have adjustable power. These types of scopes will note the magnification level in a format like 2-10×32. These numbers indicate the magnification of the scope could be adjusted between 2x and 10x power. This additionally includes the powers in-between 2 and 10. The power modification is achieved by applying the power ring component of the scope near the back of the scope by the eye bell piece.
Glass Power Level and Range Correlation
Here are some advised scope powers and the distances where they can be efficiently used. Highly magnified rifle scope glass will not be as useful as lower magnification level rifle scope glass since too much zoom can be a bad thing. The very same idea relates to extended ranges where the shooter needs to have sufficient power to see where to properly aim the rifle.
Lens Finishing for Rifle Optics
All modern rifle glass lenses are layered. Lens covering can be a vital aspect of a rifle’s setup when buying high end rifle optics and scope setups.
ED Versus HD Rifle Optics
Some rifle scope manufacturers even use “HD” or high-definition lens coatings that employ various procedures, aspects, rare earth compounds, and polarizations to enhance different color ranges and viewable target definition through lenses. This high-def covering is commonly used with more costly, high density glass which drops light’s chance to refract through the lens glass. Some scope vendors use “HD” to describe “ED” signifying extra-low dispersion glass. ED deals with how certain colors are represented on the chroma spectrum and the chromatic difference or aberration which is similarly called color distortion or fringing. Chromatic aberration is often obvious over things with well defined outlines as light hits the object from specific angles.
Single Optic Lens Coating Versus Multi-Coating
Various optic lenses can also have various coatings applied to them. All lenses normally have at least some kind of treatment or coating applied to them prior to being used in a rifle scope or optic. This is due to the fact that the lens isn’t simply a raw piece of glass. It is part of the finely tuned optic. It must have a covering placed on it so that it will be efficiently functional in lots of kinds of environments, degrees of sunlight (full VS shaded), and other shooting conditions.
This lens treatment can protect the lens from scratches while reducing glare and other less useful things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single layered lens depends on the scope producer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope makers likewise make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are coated or “multi” coated. This implies the lens has several treatments applied to the surfaces of the glass. If a lens gets several treatments, it can prove that a producer is taking numerous actions to fight various natural elements like an anti-glare finish, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion coating, followed by a hydrophilic finishing. This additionally doesn’t always mean the multi-coated lens will perform much better than a single coated lens. Being “better” hinges on the maker’s lens treatment technology and the quality of components used in creating the rifle optic.
Hydrophobic Optic Lens Coating
Water on a lens doesn’t assist with preserving a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Many top of the line and high-end scope makers will coat their lenses with a hydrophobic or hydrophilic covering.
Choices for Mounting Rifle Scopes on Firearms
Installing options for scopes can be found in a few choices. There are the basic scope rings which are individually mounted to the scope and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These various kinds of mounts also normally can be found in quick release versions which use throw levers which enable rifle operators to quickly mount and remove the scopes.
Hex Key Rifle Optic Ring Mounting Solutions
Standard, clamp style 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 created for long range precision shooting. This type of scope install is great for rifles which need a resilient, rock solid mounting solution which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abused.
Quick-Release Cantilever Rifle Scope Ring Mounting Solutions
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly remove a scope and attach it to a different rifle. Multiple scopes can also be switched out if they all use a similar design mount. These types of mounts are convenient for rifles which are transported a lot, to swap out the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for scopes which are used in between several rifles.
Sealing and Gas Purging for Glass Tubes
Moisture inside your rifle scope can ruin a day of shooting and your costly optic by causing fogging and developing residue inside of the scope tube. Many scopes prevent wetness from getting in the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are waterproof.
Optic Gas Purging
Another component of avoiding the buildup of wetness within the rifle scope’s tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Given that this space is currently occupied by the gas, the glass is less altered by condition shifts and pressure differences from the outdoor environment which could possibly enable water vapor to permeate in around the seals to fill the vacuum which would otherwise be there. These are good qualities of a good rifle scope to look for.
