What You Need to Know About Rifle Scopes
Rifle scopes enable you to precisely align a rifle at various targets by aligning your eye with the target at range. They accomplish this through zoom by utilizing a set of lenses inside the scope. The scope’s alignment can be dialed in to take into account numerous environmental elements like wind speed and elevation increases or decreases to account for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to understand precisely where the bullet will hit based upon the sight picture you are viewing using the scope as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the intended target. A lot of modern rifle optics have around eleven parts which are arranged within and on the exterior of the optic. These optic pieces include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, elevation turrets or dials, objective focus rings, and other parts. See all eleven parts of a rifle scope.
Rifle Scope Types
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of scopes. Deciding on the perfect type of rifle glass is based around what type of shooting you plan on doing.
About First Focal Plane Glass
Focal plane scopes (FFP) include the reticle in front of the zoom lens. These kinds of scopes are useful for:
- Quick acquisition, far away kinds of shooting
- Shooting circumstances where estimations are small
- Experienced shooters who recognize their target “hold over” as well as “lead” relationships for their weapon
- Shooters who do not mind the reticle is enlarged and uses up more visual eyesight space than a SFP reticle
Info on Second Focal Plane Optics
Second focal plane glass (SFP) feature the reticle to the rear of the magnifying lens. This induces the reticle to stay at the very same scale in connection with the volume of zoom being used. The result is that the reticle measurements adjust based on the zoom applied to shoot over longer ranges considering that the markings present various increments which change with the magnification. In the FFP example with the SFP optic, the 5x “zoom” 100 yard tick would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick reticle measurement. These types of scopes are handy for:
- Long distance types of shooting where shooters have more time to make ballistic calculations
- Shooting where most shots take place within shorter ranges and proximities
- Shooters who would like a clearer optic sight picture with less area taken up by the bigger FFP reticle
About Glass Magnification
The quantity of zoom a scope supplies is determined 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 on Fixed Single Power Lens Rifle Optics
A single power rifle optic and scope uses a zoom number designator like 4×32. This indicates the magnification power of the scope is 4x power while the objective lens is 32mm. The zoom of this type of scope can not fluctuate because it is a fixed power optic.
Adjustable Power Lens Rifle Glass
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 indicate the magnification of the scope can be set in between 2x and 10x power. This always incorporates the power levels in-between 2 and 10. The power adjustment is accomplished by making use of the power ring part of the scope near the rear of the scope by the eye bell.
Scope Power Level and Range Correlation
Here are some recommended scope powers and the ranges where they can be effectively used. Keep in mind that high power optics will not be as practical as lower magnification level optics and scopes because increased zoom can be a detractor. The exact same idea relates to extended ranges where the shooter needs to have increased power to see exactly where to best aim the rifle.
Glass Lens Coating
All modern-day rifle optic lenses are coated. There are various types and qualities of glass coverings. When shopping for high end rifle scope systems, Lens finishing can be an essential element of defining the rifle’s capability. The lenses are one of the most vital parts of the glass as they are what your eye looks through while sighting a rifle in on the point of impact. The covering on the lenses offers protection to the lens surface as well as improves anti glare capabilities from excess natural light and color recognition.
HD Versus ED Lenses
Some scope brands also use “HD” or high-definition lens finishes which use different techniques, polarizations, chemicals, and components to draw out separate colors and viewable definition through the lens. Some scope manufacturers use “HD” to refer to “ED” indicating extra-low dispersion glass.
Rifle Scope Lens Single Covering Versus Multi-Coating
Various optic lenses can also have various finishings applied to them. All lenses generally have at least some type of treatment or covering used to them before being used in a rifle scope or optic.
This lens treatment can safeguard 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 covered lens depends on the scope producer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope makers likewise make it a point to define if their optic lenses are covered or “multi” coated. This means the lens has multiple treatments applied to the surfaces of the glass. If a lens receives multiple treatments, it can establish that a producer is taking several steps to combat different natural aspects like an anti-glare coating, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion finishing, followed by a hydrophilic finishing. This also doesn’t necessarily imply the multi-coated lens will perform much better than a single layered lens. Being “better” depends on the maker’s lens treatment technology and the quality of components used in constructing the rifle scope.
Rifle Glass Lens Hydrophobic Covering
Water on a scope’s lens does not improve preserving a clear sight picture through a scope in any way. Numerous top of the line or high-end scope manufacturers will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic coating. The Steiner Optics Nano-Protection is a good example of this sort of treatment. It provides protection for the surface area of the Steiner optic lens so the water molecules can not bind to it or create surface tension. The outcome is that the water beads sheet off of the scope to keep a clear, water free sight picture.
Alternatives for Installing Glass on Firearms
Installing options for scopes are available in a few options. There are the basic scope rings which are separately mounted to the optic and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These different types of mounts also typically come in quick release versions which use toss levers which enable rifle operators to rapidly mount and remove the optics.
Hex Key Glass Ring Mounting Solutions
Normal, clamp design mounting scope rings use hex head screws to mount to the flattop style Picatinny scope mount rails on rifles. These types of scope mounts use two different rings to support the optic, and are often made from 7075 T6 billet aluminum which is created for long range precision shooting. This type of scope mount is excellent for rifles which require a resilient, rock solid mount which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abused.
Rifle Optic Mounts with Quick-Release Cantilever Rings
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly take off a scope from a rifle and reattach it to a different rifle. If they all use a comparable design mount, a number of scopes can also be switched out in the field. The quick detach design is CNC machined from anodized 6061 T6 aluminum and the mounting levers fasten solidly to a flat top design Picatinny rail. This allows the scope to be sighted in while on the rifle, removed from the rifle, and remounted back on the rifle while keeping the original sighting settings. These types of mounts are useful and handy for rifles which are hauled around a lot, to take off the optic from the rifle for protection, or for scopes which are adopted between multiple rifles. An example of this mount type is the 30mm mount designed by Vortex Optics. It normally costs around $250 USD
Info on Rifle Glass Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Wetness inside your rifle scope can destroy a day of shooting and your expensive optic by causing fogging and developing residue inside of the scope tube. Many scopes prevent wetness from entering the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are water resistant.
Info on Glass Tube Gas Purging
Another component of avoiding the buildup of moisture inside of the rifle scope’s tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Since this space is currently occupied by the gas, the optic is less affected by condition alterations and pressure differences from the outside environment which may possibly enable water vapor to permeate in around the seals to fill the vacuum which would otherwise exist. These are good qualities of a decent rifle scope to look for.
