Rifle Scope Details
Rifle scopes enable you to precisely aim a rifle at various targets by lining up your eye with the target over a distance. They accomplish this through zoom by utilizing a set of lenses inside the scope. The scope’s alignment can be adapted for consideration of many environmental considerations like wind speed and elevation increases to make up for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to understand exactly where the bullet will land based on the sight picture you are seeing using the optic as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. The majority of modern rifle scopes have about 11 parts which are arranged internally and outside of the optic. These parts include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, windage dials or turrets, focus rings, and other components. See all eleven parts of optics.
Rifle Scope Types
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” kind of scopes. The style of focal plane an optic has identifies where the reticle or crosshair is located in regard to the scopes magnification. It actually indicates the reticle is behind or ahead of the magnification lens of the scope. Choosing the most beneficial style of rifle glass depends on what style of shooting you anticipate doing.
First Focal Plane Scope Info
Focal plane scopes (FFP) feature the reticle in front of the zoom lens. These styles of scopes are helpful for:
- Quick acquisition, long distance types of shooting
- Shooting situations where calculations are very little
- Experienced shooters who know their target “hold over” plus “lead” ratios for their long guns
- Shooters who don’t mind the reticle is enlarged and requires more visual sight space than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Glass
Second focal plane glass (SFP) feature the reticle behind the magnifying lens. This causes the reticle to remain at the exact same scale in connection with the amount of zoom being used. The final result is that the reticle dimensions alter based upon the zoom employed to shoot over longer distances since the reticle markings present distinct increments which change with the zoom. In the FFP illustration with the SFP glass, the 5x “zoom” one hundred yard tick measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick reticle measurement. These particular sorts of optics are useful for:
- Far away styles of shooting where shooters have additional time to make ballistic calculations
- Shooting where most shots happen within shorter distances and ranges
- Shooters who prefer a clearer optic sight picture with less space taken up by the enlarged FFP reticle
Zoom for Optics
The measure of scope zoom you need depends on the type of shooting you wish to do. Virtually every type of rifle glass supplies some amount of zoom. The amount of zoom a scope gives is established by the dimension, density, and curvatures of the lens glass inside of the rifle scope. The magnification of the scope is the “power” of the glass. This means what the shooter is aiming at through the scope is amplified times the power aspect of what can typically be seen by human eyes.
Info on Fixed Single Power Lens Rifle Scopes
A single power rifle scope or optic will have a magnification number designator like 4×32. This implies the magnification power of the scope is 4x power and the objective lens is 32mm. The zoom of this kind of scope can not fluctuate since it is fixed.
Adjustable Power Lens Scope Info
Variable power rifle scopes can be changed between magnification levels. It will note the zoom amount in a format such as 2-10×32. These numbers suggest the magnification of the scope can be changed in between 2x and 10x power. This also incorporates the powers in-between 2 and 10. The power modification is accomplished by working with the power ring component of the scope near the back of the scope by the eye bell.
The Power Level and Range Correlation of Glass
Here are some advised scope power settings and the ranges where they can be efficiently used. Highly magnified scopes will not be as useful as lower magnification level rifle scope glass considering too much magnification can be a negative aspect depending on your shooting distance. The same applies to extended ranges where the shooter needs to have increased power to see where to best aim the rifle at the target.
Scope Lens Finishing
All contemporary rifle scope lenses are covered in special coatings. There are different types and qualities of glass lens finishes. Lens finish is an essential aspect of a rifle’s setup when considering luxury rifle optics and scope equipment. The lenses are one of the most critical parts of the scope considering that they are what your eye sees through while sighting a rifle in on the target. The finishing on the lenses shields the lens surface area as well as helps with anti glare from refracted direct sunlight and color discernibility.
HD Versus ED Lenses
Some scope manufacturers also use “HD” or high-definition lens finishings which use different processes, components, chemicals, and polarizations to draw out a wide range of colors and viewable quality through the lens. Some scope producers use “HD” to refer to “ED” indicating extra-low dispersion glass.
Single Finishing Versus Multi-Coating for Scopes
Various optic lenses can also have various coverings applied to them. All lenses normally have at least some kind of treatment or covering applied to them before being used in a rifle scope or optic assembly. Since the lens isn’t just a raw piece of glass, they require performance enhancing coatings. It becomes part of the carefully tuned optic. It must have a coating put on it so that it will be efficiently functional in many types of environments, degrees of sunlight (full light VS shaded), and other shooting conditions.
Single covered lenses have a treatment applied to them which is typically a protective and improving multi-purpose treatment. This lens treatment can preserve the lens from scratches while reducing glare and other less useful things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the optic. The quality of a single coated lens depends on the scope producer and how much money you spent paying for it. Both are signs of the lens quality.
Some scope makers also make it a point to define if their optic lenses are covered or “multi” covered. This suggests the lens has multiple treatments applied to them. If a lens receives numerous treatments, it can prove that a maker is taking multiple steps to combat various natural elements like an anti-glare finish, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion coating, followed by a hydrophilic finish. This additionally does not always indicate the multi-coated lens will perform much better than a single covered lens. Being “better” depends upon the manufacturer’s lens treatment solutions and the quality of materials used in constructing the rifle scope.
Hydrophobic Glass Lens Finish
Water on a scope’s lens does not improve 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. The Steiner Optics Nano-Protection is a fine example of this sort of treatment. It treats the surface of the Steiner optic lens so the water particles can not bind to it or develop surface tension. The result is that the water beads roll off of the scope to preserve a clear, water free sight picture.
Choices for Mounting Glass on Firearms
Installing approaches for scopes can be found in a couple of choices. There are the basic scope rings which are individually mounted to the scope and one-piece scope mounts which cradle the scope. These different kinds of mounts also normally come in quick release versions which use throw levers which permit rifle operators to rapidly mount and remove the glass.
Optic Mounts with Hex Key Rings
Normal, clamp style mounting scope rings use hex head screws to mount to the flattop design Picatinny scope mount rails on rifles. These types of scope mounts use a couple of separate 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 fine for rifles which require a long lasting, rock solid mounting solution which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abused.
Optic Mounts with Quick-Release Cantilever Rings
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly connect and take off a scope from a rifle before reattaching it to a different rifle. Several scopes can also be swapped out if they all use a compatible style mount. These types of mounts come in handy for rifles which are transported a lot, to remove the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for optics which are used in between multiple rifles or are situationally focused.
Rifle Scope Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Moisture 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 prevent wetness from getting in the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are waterproof.
Glass Gas Purging
Another component of preventing the buildup of moisture inside of the rifle scope tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Given that this area is currently occupied by the gas, the glass is less influenced by temp shifts and pressure differences from the external environment which may possibly permit water vapor to permeate in around the seals to fill the void which would otherwise be there. These are good qualities of a decent rifle scope to look for.
