Rifle scopes permit you to specifically aim a rifle at various targets by aligning your eye with the target at range. They accomplish this through magnifying the target by using a series of lenses within the scope. The scope’s alignment can be adjusted to take into account different environmental considerations like wind speed and elevation increases to make up for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to help the shooter understand exactly where the bullet will land based on the sight picture you are seeing with the scope as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. The majority of contemporary rifle scopes have around 11 parts which are arranged within and externally on the scope body. These parts include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, windage and elevation turrets, objective focus rings, and other components. See all eleven parts of optics.
Rifle Scope Styles
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of scopes. Going for the optimal type of rifle optic is based on what type of shooting you plan to do.
About First Focal Plane Optics
Focal plane scopes (FFP) feature the reticle in front of the magnification lens. This triggers the reticle to increase in size based on the level of zoom being used. The result is that the reticle measurements are the same at the magnified distance as they are at the non magnified distance. One tick on a mil-dot reticle at one hundred yards without “zoom” is still the identical tick at 100 yards by using 5x “zoom”. These types of scopes work for:
- Quick acquisition, long distance types of shooting
- Shooting situations where computations are small
- Experienced shooters who understand their target “hold over” plus “lead” ratios for their long gun
- Shooters who do not mind the reticle is enlarged and takes up more visual eyesight space than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Scope Info
Second focal plane optics (SFP) include the reticle to the rear of the magnification lens. This induces the reticle to remain at the same overall size relative to the level of zoom being used. The final result is that the reticle measurements alter based upon the zoom chosen to shoot over longer ranges considering that the reticle markings represent distinct increments which change with the zoom. In the FFP example with the SFP glass, the 5x “zoom” 100 yard tick would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement. These particular kinds of optics work for:
- Long distance styles of shooting where shooters have increased time to make ballistic calculations
- Shooting where most of the shots happen within shorter proximities and ranges
- Shooters who like a clearer optic picture with less room taken up by the bigger FFP reticle
Details on Glass Magnification
The amount of zoom a scope provides is figured out by the diameter, 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 Rifle Glass
A single power rifle optic uses a zoom number designator like 4×32. This indicates the zoom power of the scope is 4x power while the objective lens is 32mm. The magnification of this type of scope can not adjust since it is a fixed power scope.
Adjustable Power Lens Optics
Variable power rifle scopes can be modified between magnified levels. The power adjustment is accomplished by using the power ring part of the scope near the back of the scope by the eye bell.
Rifle Glass Power Level and Range Correlation
Here are some advised scope powers and the distances where they may be effectively used. High power rifle scope glass will not be as effective as lower magnification level rifle scope glass considering too much magnification can be a bad thing. The same idea applies to longer distances where the shooter needs adequate power to see where to properly aim the rifle.
Scope Lens Covering
All current rifle scope lenses are coated. Lens coating can be an essential element of a rifle when considering high end rifle optics and scope systems.
ED Versus HD Scopes
Some rifle glass companies will also use “HD” or high-definition lens finishes that employ different processes, chemical applications, polarizations, and aspects to draw out numerous colors and viewable target definition through the lens. This HD covering is often used with increased density glass which lowers light’s opportunity to refract by means of the lens glass. Some scope producers use “HD” to describe “ED” implying extra-low dispersion glass. ED handles how certain colors are represented on the chromatic spectrum and the chromatic difference or aberration which is also called color distortion or fringing. Chromatic aberration may be noticeable over objects with defined outlines as light hits the item from various angles.
Rifle Optic Lens Single Covering Versus Multi-Coating
Different optic lenses can also have different finishes applied to them. All lenses generally have at least some type of treatment or finishing applied to them prior to being used in a rifle scope or optic.
Single covered lenses have a treatment applied to them which is typically a protective and enhancing multi-purpose treatment. This lens treatment can safeguard the lens from scratches while lowering glare and other less beneficial things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single covered lens depends on the scope company and the amount you spent paying for it. Both are signs of the lens quality.
Some scope producers likewise make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are covered or “multi” covered. This means the lens has had multiple treatments applied to them. If a lens receives several treatments, it can establish that a producer is taking several steps to combat different natural elements like an anti-glare finishing, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion finish, followed by a hydrophilic finish. This additionally does not necessarily imply the multi-coated lens will perform better than a single layered lens. Being “better” depends on the producer’s lens treatment solutions and the quality of glass used in constructing the rifle optic.
Anti-water Lens Covering
Water on a lens doesn’t help with preserving a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Numerous top of the line and high-end scope companies will coat their lenses with a hydrophobic or hydrophilic finish.
Rifle Optic Installation Choices
Mounting approaches for scopes are available in a couple of choices. There are the standard scope rings which are separately installed to the scope and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These different kinds of mounts also usually come in quick release versions which use manual levers which permit rifle shooters to quickly mount and remove the glass.
Hex Key Glass Ring Mounts
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 a couple of different rings to support the optic, and are made from 7075 T6 billet aluminum which is created for long range accuracy shooting. This type of scope mount is wonderful for rifles which need a durable, sound mount which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abused.
Quick-Release Cantilever Rifle Scope Rings
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly attach and remove a scope from a rifle before reattaching it to a different rifle. Numerous scopes can also be switched out if they all use a compatible design mount. These types of mounts come in handy for long guns which are transported a lot, to swap out the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for scopes which are used between numerous rifles.
Sealing and Gas Purging for Rifle Optic Tubes
Wetness inside your rifle optic can ruin a day of shooting and your expensive optic by triggering fogging and developing residue inside of the scope tube. Many scopes avoid moisture from going into the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are water resistant.
Rifle Optic Gas Purging
Another part of preventing the accumulation of wetness inside of the rifle scope tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Considering that this space is already occupied by the gas, the optic is less affected by temperature alterations and pressure differences from the outside environment which could possibly allow water vapor to seep in around the seals to fill the vacuum which would otherwise exist. These are good qualities of a good rifle scope to seek out.
