Rifle scopes enable you to precisely align a rifle at different targets by lining up your eye with the target over a distance. They accomplish this through zoom using a series of lenses within the scope. The scope’s positioning can be adjusted for consideration of different environmental considerations like wind speed and elevation increases to make up 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 through the scope as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. Many modern-day rifle scopes and optics have around eleven parts which are arranged inside and externally on the scope body. These scope parts consist of the rifle scope’s body, lenses, modification turrets or dials, objective focus rings, and other parts. See all eleven parts of a rifle optical system.
About Rifle Glass Varieties
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of scopes. Considering the optimal type of rifle scope is based on what type of shooting you plan on doing.
Info on First Focal Plane Glass
Focal plane scopes (FFP) come with the reticle in front of the magnification lens. This induces the reticle to increase in size based on the amount of magnification being used. The benefit is that the reticle measurements are the same at the amplified distance as they are at the non magnified distance. For instance, one tick on a mil-dot reticle at 100 yards with no “zoom” is still the corresponding tick at 100 yards with 5x “zoom”. These types of scopes work for:
- Quick acquisition, far away kinds of shooting
- Shooting situations where estimations are minor
- Experienced shooters who know their target “hold over” and “lead” equations for their weapon
- Shooters who don’t mind the reticle is enlarged and occupies more visual eyesight area than a SFP reticle
Info About Second Focal Plane Scopes
Second focal plane optics (SFP) include the reticle behind the magnification lens. This triggers the reticle to remain at the exact same overall size relative to the level of magnification being used. The effect is that the reticle measurements adapt based on the zoom employed to shoot over lengthier ranges considering the markings represent distinct increments which fluctuate 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 scopes work for:
- Long distance types of shooting where shooters have additional time to make ballistic calculations
- Shooting where most shots occur within much shorter ranges and proximities
- Shooters who desire a clearer optic picture without area used up by the enlarged FFP reticle
Details on Optic Zoom
The extent of scope zoom you need depends on the kind of shooting you wish to do. Just about every kind of rifle scope provides some degree of magnification. The quantity of zoom a scope supplies is established by the diameter, density, and curves of the lens glass inside of the rifle scope. The magnifying level of the optic is the “power” of the opic. This indicates what the shooter is observing through the scope is amplified times the power aspect of what can usually be seen by human eyes.
Single Power Lens Scopes
A single power rifle optic comes with a zoom number designator like 4×32. This suggests the magnification power of the scope is 4x power and the objective lens is 32mm. The magnification of this kind of optic can not adjust since it is fixed.
Variable Power Lens Rifle Glass Info
Variable power rifle scopes have adjustable power. These types of scopes will list the magnification amount in a configuration such as 2-10×32. These numbers suggest the magnification of the scope can be set in between 2x and 10x power. This also involves the powers in-between 2 and 10. The power shift is achieved by applying the power ring part of the scope near the back of the scope by the eye bell piece.
Rifle Optic Power Level and Ranges
Here are some advised scope power levels and the distances where they may be successfully used. High power rifle scope glass will not be as beneficial as lower magnification level optics considering too much zoom can be a negative aspect depending on your shooting distance. The exact same idea applies to extended distances where the shooter needs to have increased power to see precisely where to properly aim the rifle.
Details on Lens Coatings
All contemporary rifle scope and optic lenses are covered in special coatings. There are various types and qualities of lens coverings. Lens finishing is an essential element of a rifle when thinking of high end rifle optics and targeting units. The glass lenses are among the most essential parts of the optic because they are what your eye sees through while sighting a rifle in on the point of impact. The finish on the lenses shields the lens surface area as well as helps with anti glare capabilities from excess direct sunlight and color recognition.
ED Versus HD Rifle Optics
Some rifle glass producers will also use “HD” or high-definition glass coverings that apply different procedures, chemicals, polarizations, and aspects to enhance different colors and viewable target definition through lenses. This high-definition covering is commonly used with increased density glass which drops light’s capability to refract by means of the lens glass. Some scope brands use “HD” to describe “ED” indicating extra-low dispersion glass. ED handles how certain colors are presented on the chromatic spectrum and the chromatic aberration or difference which is similarly called color distortion or fringing. Chromatic aberration may be noticeable around things with well defined outlines as light hits the item from particular angles.
Single Finish Versus Multi-Coating
Different optic lenses can likewise have different finishes applied to them. All lenses generally have at least some type of treatment or finish used to them before being used in a rifle scope or optic.
Single layered lenses have a treatment applied to them which is normally a protective and improving multi-purpose treatment. This lens treatment can preserve the lens from scratches while reducing glare and other less beneficial things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the optic. The quality of a single covered lens depends upon the scope maker and the amount you spent on it. Both are signs of the lens quality.
Some scope manufacturers similarly make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are layered or “multi” coated. Being “better” depends on the maker’s lens treatment technology and the quality of materials used in building the rifle scope.
Details on Hydrophobic Finishing
Water on a lens doesn’t help with preserving a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Lots of top of the line and military grade scope makers will coat their lenses with a hydrophobic or hydrophilic anti-water finishing.
Options for Mounting Rifle Optics on Firearms
Installing solutions for scopes are available in a couple of 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 permit rifle shooters to rapidly mount and dismount the optics.
Rifle Optic Mounting Solutions with Hex Key Rings
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 different rings to support the optic, and are often made from 7075 T6 billet aluminum which are developed for long range accuracy shooting. This type of scope mount is great for rifles which need a durable, sound mounting solution which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abuse the rifle takes.
Quick-Release Cantilever Rifle Glass Rings
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to rapidly detach a scope and connect it to a different rifle. Several scopes can even be swapped out if they all use a compatible design mount. These types of mounts are convenient for long guns which are transported a lot, to swap out the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for optics which are used in between several rifles or are situationally focused.
Optic Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Wetness inside your rifle scope can ruin a day on the range and your highly-priced optic by triggering fogging and generating residue within the scope’s 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 immersed under 20 or 30 feet of water before the water pressure can push moisture past the O-rings. This should be ample moisture avoidance for standard use rifles for hunting and sporting purposes, unless you anticipate taking your rifle aboard watercrafts and are worried about the scope still performing if it goes over the side and you can still recover the firearm.
Rifle Scope Gas Purging
Another part of preventing the accumulation of moisture within the rifle scope’s tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Considering that this space is already taken up by the gas, the optic is less altered by temp changes and pressure distinctions from the outside environment which may potentially permit water vapor to seep in around the seals to fill the void which would otherwise exist. These are good qualities of a good rifle scope to seek out.
