What You Need to Know About Rifle Glass
Rifle scopes permit you to precisely align a rifle at various targets by lining up your eye with the target at range. They do this through magnifying the target by employing a set of lenses inside the scope. The scope’s alignment can be dialed in to take into account varied environmental aspects like wind and elevation increases or decreases to make up for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to help shooters understand exactly where the bullet will hit based on the sight picture you are seeing through the optic as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. Many modern-day rifle scopes have around eleven parts which are found inside and outside of the optic. These optic pieces include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, modification turrets or dials, objective focus rings, and other parts. See all eleven parts of a rifle scope.
The Styles of Rifle Scopes
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” kind of scopes. The style of focal plane a scope has decides where the reticle or crosshair is located in connection with the scopes magnifying adjustments. It actually suggests the reticle is situated behind or ahead of the magnifying lens of the optic. Choosing the most beneficial style of rifle optic depends on what variety of hunting or shooting you plan on doing.
About First Focal Plane Glass
Focal plane scopes (FFP) feature the reticle in front of the zoom lens. This induces the reticle to increase in size based on the extent of magnification being used. The outcome is that the reticle measurements are the same at the amplified range as they are at the non amplified range. One tick on a mil-dot reticle at one hundred yards with no “zoom” is still the very same tick at 100 yards with 5x “zoom”. These types of scopes are useful for:
- Quick acquisition, far away kinds of shooting
- Shooting circumstances where estimations are minimal
- Experienced shooters who know their target “hold over” plus “lead” correlations for their long guns
- Shooters who don’t mind the reticle is enlarged and requires more visual eyesight area than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Glass Info
Second focal plane optics (SFP) include the reticle behind the zoom lens. In the FFP example with the SFP scope, the 5x “zoom” 100 yard tick measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement.
- Long distance styles of shooting where shooters have more time to make ballistic computations
- Shooting where most shots happen within shorter ranges and spaces
- Shooters who select a clearer optic sight picture with less space used up by the bigger FFP reticle
The extent of scope magnification you need on your glass is based on the form of shooting you plan to do. Pretty much every type of rifle optic supplies some amount of magnification. The quantity of magnification a scope offers is established by the size, thickness, and curvatures of the lenses inside of the rifle scope. The magnification level of the scope is the “power” of the glass. This means what the shooter is checking out through the scope is magnified times the power element of what can usually be seen by human eyes.
Single Power Lens Optics
A single power rifle optic and scope uses a magnification 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 type of scope can not fluctuate given that it is a fixed power scope.
About Adjustable Power Lens Optics
Variable power rifle scopes use variable power levels. The power change is performed by making use of the power ring part of the scope near the rear of the scope by the eye bell.
Power Levels and Range
Here are some recommended scope power levels and the distances where they can be effectively used. Highly magnified optics will not be as efficient as lower powered glass due to the fact that too much magnification can be a negative aspect depending on your shooting distance. The same applies to extended ranges where the shooter needs enough power to see exactly where to best aim the rifle at the target.
Info on Lens Coverings
All modern rifle optic lenses are coated. Lens finish is an important element of a shooting system when purchasing high end rifle optics and scope equipment.
Details on Lens Coatings – HD Versus ED
Some optic producers will also use “HD” or high-def lense coverings which use different processes, polarizations, components, and chemicals to enhance different colors and viewable target definition through lenses. This high-def finish is normally used with greater density lens glass which decreases light’s potential to refract through the lens glass. Some scope brands use “HD” to refer to “ED” suggesting extra-low dispersion glass. ED handles how certain colors are presented on the chroma spectrum and the chromatic deviance or aberration which is similarly called color distortion or fringing. Chromatic aberration can be obvious over items with defined outlines as light hits the item from particular angles.
Single Rifle Scope Lens Finish Versus Multi-Coating
Different optic lenses can also have various coatings applied to them. All lenses generally have at least some type of treatment or covering used to them before they are used in a rifle scope or optic.
This lens treatment can safeguard the lens from scratches while minimizing glare and other less helpful things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single layered lens depends on the scope producer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope manufacturers similarly make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are layered or “multi” covered. Being “much better” depends on the maker’s lens treatment innovation and the quality of products used in developing the rifle scope.
Glass Lens Hydrophobic Coating
Water on an optic’s lens doesn’t support retaining a clear sight picture through an optic in any way. Lots of top of the line and premium scope producers will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic covering. The Steiner Optics Nano-Protection is a good example of this kind of treatment. It provides protection for the exterior of the Steiner scope lens so the H2O particles can not bind to it or produce surface tension. The outcome is that the water beads slide off of the scope to keep a clear, water free sight picture.
Rifle Scope Installing Options
Mounting options for scopes come in a few choices. There are the standard scope rings which are separately mounted to the optic and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These different kinds of mounts also generally are made in quick release variations which use toss levers which allow rifle shooters to rapidly install and dismount the scope.
Glass Mounts with Hex Key Rings
Standard, clamp-on style mounting scope rings use hex head screws to position to the flattop style Picatinny scope mounting rails on rifles. These types of scope mounts use two separate rings to support the scope, and are usually constructed from 7075 T6 billet aluminum or similar materials which are developed for far away accuracy shooting. This form of scope mount is effective for rifle systems which require a durable, rock solid mount which will not move despite how much the scope is moved or abuse the rifle takes. These are the type of mounts you should get for a specialized scope system on a reach out and touch someone scouting or competition long gun which will rarely need to be changed or recalibrated. Blue 242 Loctite threadlocker can also be used to protect against the hex screw threads from backing out after they are mounted firmly in position. An example of these rings are the 30mm type made by Vortex Optics. The set usually costs around $200 USD
Quick-Release Cantilever Scope Ring Mounts
These kinds of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly detach a scope from a rifle and reattach it to a different rifle. Several scopes can also be swapped out if they all use a complementary style mount. The quick detach design is CNC crafted from anodized 6061 T6 aluminum and the mounting levers connect firmly to a flat top style Picatinny rail. This lets the scope to be sighted in while on the rifle, taken off of the rifle, and remounted while keeping accuracy. These kinds of mounts are useful and convenient for shooting platforms which are carried a lot, to take off the glass from the rifle for protection, or for sight systems which are chosen for use in between numerous rifles. An example of this mount style is the 30mm mount designed by the Vortex Optics brand. It normally costs around $250 USD
Rifle Scope Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Wetness inside your rifle scope can ruin a day of shooting and your costly optic by causing fogging and developing residue inside of the scope tube. The majority of scopes prevent moisture from getting in the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are waterproof.
Gas Purged Optic Tubes
Another part of avoiding the accumulation of wetness within the rifle optic tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Since this space is currently occupied by the gas, the scope is less altered by temp changes and pressure distinctions from the outside environment which might potentially permit water vapor to seep 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.
