Facts About Rifle Glass
Rifle scopes allow you to specifically aim a rifle at different targets by lining up your eye with the target at range. They do this through magnification using a set of lenses within the scope. The scope’s alignment can be dialed in to take into account many environmental aspects like wind speed and elevation increases or decreases to account for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to help shooters understand precisely where the bullet will hit based upon the sight picture you are seeing with the optic as you line up the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the target. A lot of contemporary rifle optics have around 11 parts which are arranged internally and outside of the scope. These parts include the rifle scope’s body, lenses, elevation dials, objective focus rings, and other parts. Learn about the eleven parts of rifle glass.
Rifle Scope Styles
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of scopes. Choosing the best type of rifle optic is based around what type of shooting you plan to do.
First Focal Plane Glass
First focal plane glass (FFP) include the reticle before the magnifying lens. This triggers the reticle to increase in size based upon the extent of magnification being used. The outcome 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 one hundred yards by using 5x “zoom”. These types of scopes work for:
- Quick acquisition, far away kinds of shooting
- Shooting circumstances where estimations are minor
- Experienced shooters who recognize their target “hold over” and “lead” correlations for their weapon
- Shooters who do not mind the reticle is bigger and uses up more visual sight space than a SFP reticle
Second Focal Plane Optics
Second focal plane optics (SFP) come with the reticle behind the magnification lens. In the FFP example with the SFP scope, the 5x “zoom” one hundred yard tick reticle measurement would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick reticle measurement.
- Long distance kinds of shooting where shooters have more time to make ballistic estimations
- Shooting where most shots take place within much shorter ranges and proximities
- Shooters who want a clearer optic sight picture without area taken up by the larger sized FFP reticle
About Optic Zoom
The level of scope magnification you need on your optic depends upon the style of shooting you plan to do. Nearly every type of rifle scope provides some degree of magnification. The amount of magnification a scope gives is identified by the size, density, and curvatures of the lenses within the rifle scope. The zoom of the scope is the “power” of the glass. This suggests what the shooter is observing through the scope is magnified times the power factor of what can typically be seen by human eyes.
About Fixed Power Lens Optics
A single power rifle scope uses a magnification number designator like 4×32. This implies the zoom power of the scope is 4x power while the objective lens is 32mm. The magnification of this kind of optic can not adjust considering that it is fixed.
Adjustable Power Lens Rifle Optics
Variable power rifle scopes can be adjusted between magnification power levels. It will note the zoom degree in a format such as 2-10×32. These numbers suggest the magnification of the scope could be set between 2x and 10x power. This also incorporates the power levels in-between 2 and 10. The power manipulation is accomplished by making use of the power ring component of the scope near the back of the scope by the eye bell.
The Power Level and Range Correlation of Rifle Scopes
Here are some advised scope powers and the distances where they could be effectively used. Bear in mind that high magnification scopes will not be as efficient as lower powered scope and optics since increased magnification can be a bad thing. The very same idea applies to longer ranges where the shooter needs sufficient power to see precisely where to properly aim the rifle at the target.
Lens Coating for Glass
All contemporary rifle optic and scope lenses are covered. Lens finish can be a crucial aspect of a rifle’s setup when considering high end rifle optics and scope setups.
About Lens Coatings – HD Versus ED
Some scope producers also use “HD” or high-definition lens coatings which use various procedures, polarizations, aspects, and chemicals to draw out different colors and viewable quality through the lens. Some scope producers use “HD” to refer to “ED” meaning extra-low dispersion glass.
Single Scope Lens Coating Versus Multi-Coating
Different optic lenses can likewise have various coverings applied to them. All lenses generally have at least some type of treatment or coating used to them before 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 useful things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single coated lens depends on the scope producer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope manufacturers likewise make it a point to define if their optic lenses are layered or “multi” covered. This indicates the lens has numerous treatments applied to them. If a lens gets several treatments, it can indicate that a producer is taking several actions to combat various natural aspects like an anti-glare coating, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion coating, followed by a hydrophilic finish. This also doesn’t always imply the multi-coated lens will perform much better than a single coated lens. Being “better” depends on the manufacturer’s lens treatment innovation and the quality of products used in building the rifle glass.
Anti-water Coating for Rifle Glass
Water on a scope lens doesn’t assist with keeping a clear sight picture through a scope whatsoever. Numerous top of the line and premium scope makers will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic finishing. The Steiner Optics Nano-Protection is a fine example of this kind of treatment. It treats the surface of the Steiner glass lens so the H2O molecules can not bind to it or create surface tension. The outcome is that the water beads slide off of the scope to preserve a clear, water free sight picture.
Choices for Installing Rifle Scopes on Long Guns
Mounting approaches for scopes can be found in a few options. There are the basic scope rings which are separately mounted to the scope and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These different kinds of mounts also generally can be found in quick release versions which use throw levers which allow rifle shooters to quickly mount and remove the scopes.
Scope Mounts with Hex Key Rings
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 made from 7075 T6 billet aluminum which are developed for long distance precision shooting. This type of scope install is perfect for rifles which need a durable, sound mount which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abuse the rifle takes.
Quick-Release Cantilever Rifle Optic Ring Mounting Solutions
These types of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to rapidly connect and remove a scope from a rifle before reattaching it to a different rifle. Several scopes can also be swapped out if they all use a similar design mount. These types of mounts come in handy for long guns which are transferred a lot, to remove the optic from the rifle for protecting the scope, or for optics which are used between multiple rifles.
Optic Tube Sealing and Gas Purging
Moisture inside your rifle scope can ruin a day of shooting and your costly optic by causing fogging and producing residue inside of the scope tube. Most scopes prevent moisture from getting in the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are water resistant.
Glass Gas Purging
Another component of preventing the buildup of wetness inside of the rifle optic tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Because this space is currently taken up by the gas, the optic is less affected by condition changes and pressure differences from the outdoor environment which might possibly permit 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 look for.
