Rifle scopes permit you to precisely align a rifle at various targets by lining up your eye with the target over a distance. They do this through zoom using a set of lenses within the scope. The scope’s alignment can be adjusted to account for different natural factors 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 hit based upon the sight picture you are seeing with the scope as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the intended target. The majority of modern-day rifle scopes and optics have around eleven parts which are arranged internally and externally on the optic. These scope parts include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, modification turrets, objective focus rings, and other elements. See all eleven parts of a rifle optical system.
About Optic Styles
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of optics. Deciding on the finest type of rifle scope is based around what type of shooting you plan on doing.
First Focal Plane Scope Info
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 very little
- Experienced shooters who recognize their aim point “hold over” and “lead” ratios for their rifles
- Shooters who do not mind the reticle is enlarged and requires more visual sight area than a SFP reticle
About Second Focal Plane Glass
Second focal plane glass (SFP) feature the reticle to the rear of the magnification lens. This induces the reticle to remain at the same dimensions relative to the quantity of zoom being used. The effect is that the reticle measurements change based upon the magnification chosen to shoot over lengthier ranges due to the fact that the reticle measurements represent various increments which fluctuate with the zoom level. In the FFP example with the SFP glass, the 5x “zoom” one hundred yard tick measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement. These particular kinds of optics are convenient for:
- Far away kinds of shooting where shooters have extra time to make ballistic calculations
- Shooting where most shots happen within shorter spaces and ranges
- Shooters who select a clearer optic sight picture with less space taken up by the larger sized FFP reticle
Magnification for Rifle Optics
The measure of scope zoom you need is based on the form of shooting you intend to do. Just about every kind of rifle scope delivers some level of zoom. The volume of zoom a scope delivers is identified by the dimension, density, and curves of the lenses inside of the rifle optic. The zoom of the optic is the “power” of the opic. This suggests what the shooter is aiming at through the scope is amplified times the power factor of what can usually be seen by human eyes.
Fixed Power Lens Glass
A single power rifle scope comes with a zoom number designator like 4×32. This suggests the zoom power of the scope is 4x power while the objective lens is 32mm. The magnification of this type of scope can not fluctuate since it is a fixed power optic.
Adjustable Power Lens Glass Facts
Variable power rifle scopes can be tweaked between magnified settings. The power change is handled by making use of the power ring part of the scope near the rear of the scope by the eye bell.
The Power and Range of Scopes
Here are some recommended scope power levels and the distances where they can be efficiently used. High power glass will not be as effective as lower magnification scopes considering that too much magnification can be a negative aspect depending on your shooting distance. The same relates to extended distances where the shooter needs increased power to see where to properly aim the rifle.
About Lens Covering
All modern-day rifle scope lenses are covered in special coatings. There are various types and qualities of glass lens finishes. When shopping for luxury rifle targeting devices, Lens finishing can be a very important aspect of defining the capability of the rifle. The lenses are one of the most significant components of the scope because they are what your eye sees through while sighting a rifle in on the point of impact. The covering on the lenses shields the lens surface and even helps with anti glare capabilities from refracted sunrays and color profiles.
HD Versus ED Lenses
Some scope manufacturers also use “HD” or high-definition lens coverings which use various processes, chemicals, components, and polarizations to draw out various colors and viewable definition through the lens. Some scope manufacturers use “HD” to refer to “ED” meaning extra-low dispersion glass.
Single Finish Versus Multi-Coating
Different optic lenses can also have different finishings used to them. All lenses normally have at least some type of treatment or coating used to them prior to being used in a rifle scope or optic.
This lens treatment can offer protection to the lens from scratches while lowering glare and other less helpful things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single coated lens depends on the scope manufacturer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope producers also make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are covered or “multi” covered. Being “much better” depends on the manufacturer’s lens treatment technology and the quality of products used in building the rifle scope.
Hydrophobic Lens Finishing
Water on a lens doesn’t help with preserving a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Many top of the line and military grade optic companies will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic finish.
Alternatives for Installing Optics on Long Guns
Mounting solutions for scopes are available in a few choices. There are the standard scope rings which are individually mounted to the scope and one-piece scope mounts which cradle the scope. These various types of mounts also typically come in quick release versions which use manual levers which allow rifle shooters to quickly install and dismount the scope.
Hex Key Optic Ring Mounts
Standard, clamp style mounting scope rings use hex head screws to mount to the flattop style Picatinny scope installation 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 is developed for long distance accuracy shooting. This type of scope mount is great for rifles which require a long lasting, 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 Scope Rings
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to rapidly take off a scope and attach it to a different rifle. Multiple scopes can also be swapped out if they all use a compatible style mount. These types of mounts are handy for rifles which are transferred a lot, to remove the optic from the rifle for protection, or for scopes which are used between numerous rifles.
Rifle Glass Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Moisture inside your rifle glass can mess up a day on the range and your expensive optic by inducing fogging and making residue within the scope tube. The majority of optics prevent humidity from entering the optical tube with a series of sealing O-rings which are waterproof. Normally, these optics can be submerged beneath 20 or 30 feet of water before the water pressure can push moisture past the O-rings. This should be sufficient moisture prevention for basic use rifles, unless you plan on taking your rifle boating and are worried about the scope still working if it is submerged in water and you can still retrieve the rifle.
What to Know About Optic Tube Gas Purging
Another part of avoiding the buildup of wetness within the rifle scope tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Considering that this space is already occupied by the gas, the scope is less affected by temperature level shifts and pressure distinctions from the outdoor environment which could potentially enable water vapor to permeate in around the seals to fill the void which would otherwise be there. These are good qualities of a good rifle scope to seek out.
