Info Rifle Scopes
Rifle scopes permit you to exactly aim a rifle at different targets by aligning your eye with the target over a range. They accomplish this through magnification by using a set of lenses inside the scope. The scope’s positioning can be adapted for the consideration of different environmental aspects like wind speed and elevation to make up for bullet drop.
The scope’s purpose is to understand exactly where the bullet will hit based on the sight picture you are seeing with the scope as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the intended point of impact. Most modern-day rifle scopes and optics have around 11 parts which are located inside and on the exterior of the scope body. These optic pieces consist of the rifle scope’s body, lenses, windage turrets, objective focus rings, and other parts. Learn about the eleven parts of glass.
The Styles of Rifle Scopes
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” style of scopes. The style of focal plane an optic has identifies where the reticle or crosshair lies in relation to the optic’s magnification. It simply suggests the reticle is located behind or before the magnifying lens of the optic. Picking the best style of rifle optic depends on what kind of shooting you intend on undertaking.
Info About First Focal Plane Glass
First focal plane optics (FFP) come with the reticle in front of the magnifying lens. This causes 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 range. For instance, one tick on a mil-dot reticle at one hundred yards without having “zoom” is still the very same tick at one hundred yards with 5x “zoom”. These types of scopes work for:
- Quick acquisition, far away kinds of shooting
- Shooting scenarios where estimations are low
- Experienced shooters who understand their target “hold over” and also “lead” equations for their long gun
- Shooters who don’t mind the reticle is enlarged and requires more visual eyesight room than a SFP reticle
About Second Focal Plane Optics
Second focal plane optics (SFP) include the reticle to the rear of the zoom lens. In the FFP example with the SFP scope, the 5x “zoom” one hundred yard tick would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement.
- Long distance types of shooting where shooters have extra time to make ballistic computations
- Shooting where most shots occur within shorter ranges and spaces
- Shooters who desire a clearer optic sight picture with less space used up by the enlarged FFP reticle
Zoom for Glass
The quantity of magnification a scope offers is determined by the size, density, and curvatures of the lenses inside of the rifle scope. The zoom of the scope is the “power” of the scope.
Info About Single Power Lens Rifle Glass
A single power rifle scope will have a magnification number designator like 4×32. This suggests 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 optic.
Adjustable Power Lens Rifle Glass
Variable power rifle scopes can be modified between magnified settings. The power adjustment is performed by the power ring part of the scope near the rear of the scope by the eye bell.
Power and Range
Here are some advised scope power levels and the ranges where they can be successfully used. Always remember that high power optics will not be as efficient as lower powered optics because increased magnification can be a detractor. The same concept goes for longer distances where the shooter needs to have sufficient power to see precisely where to best aim the rifle at the target.
Lens Finishing for Scopes
All modern rifle optic and scope lenses are coated. There are various types and qualities of lens coverings. Lens coating can be a crucial aspect of a rifle when contemplating high end rifle optics and scope units. The glass lenses are among the most key components of the optic considering they are what your eye looks through while sighting a rifle in on the target. The coating on the lenses protects the lens exterior as well as helps with anti glare capabilities from refracted light and color visibility.
HD Versus ED Lens Coatings
Some scope makers also use “HD” or high-definition lens coatings which use different techniques, components, chemicals, and polarizations to draw out separate colors and viewable definition through the lens. Some scope manufacturers use “HD” to refer to “ED” to signify the lens has extra-low dispersion glass.
What to Know About Single Finish Versus Multi-Coating
Various optic lenses can even have various coverings applied to them. All lenses normally have at least some type of treatment or coating applied to them prior to being used in a rifle scope or optic. This is due to the fact that the lens isn’t just a raw piece of glass. It becomes part of the finely tuned optic. It must have a covering applied to it so that the lens will be efficiently functional in lots of kinds of environments, degrees of sunshine (full light VS shaded), and other shooting conditions.
Single coated lenses have a treatment applied to them which is normally a protective and improving multi-purpose treatment. This lens treatment can protect the lens from scratches while decreasing glare and other less advantageous things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the optic. The quality of a single covered lens depends on the scope company and how much you spent on it. Both the manufacturer and amount are indications of the lens quality.
Some scope manufacturers also make it a point to define if their optic lenses are coated or “multi” covered. Being “better” depends on the maker’s lens treatment innovation and the quality of materials used in building the rifle scope.
What to Know About Hydrophobic Finishing
Water on a lens does not assist with keeping a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Many top of the line and military grade scope makers will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic finishing which is water repellent.
Choices for Installing Scopes on Long Guns
Installing approaches for scopes are available in a few choices. There are the basic scope rings which are individually installed to the scope and one-piece scope mounts which cradle the scope. These different types of mounts also typically can be found in quick release versions which use throw levers which enable rifle operators to rapidly install and dismount the optics.
Rifle Glass Mounts with Hex Key Rings
Standard, clamp style mounting scope rings use hex head screws to fix to the flattop design Picatinny scope mount rails on rifles. These styles of scope mounts use double separate rings to support the scope, and are normally constructed from 7075 T6 billet aluminum or similar materials which are made for far away precision shooting. This kind of scope mount is excellent for rifles which need a long lasting, hard use mount which will not shift regardless of how much the scope is moved about or abuse the rifle takes. These are the style of mounts you should get for a faithful optics system on a reach out and touch someone hunting or tournament firearm that will almost never need to be modified or adjusted. Blue 242 Loctite threadlocker can also be used on the mount’s screws to stop the hex screw threads from backing out after they are installed securely in position. An example of these rings are the 30mm style made by Vortex Optics. The set typically costs around $200 USD
Optic Mounting Solutions with Quick-Release Cantilever Rings
These kinds of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to quickly remove a scope from a rifle and reattach it to a different rifle. Several scopes can also be switched out if they all use a similar designed mount. The quick detach mount style is CNC machined from anodized 6061 T6 aluminum and the mounting levers connect tightly to a flat top style Picatinny rail. This permits the scope to be sighted in while on the rifle, taken off of the rifle, and remounted while preserving accuracy. These kinds of mounts come in handy for shooting platforms which are moved around a lot, to take off the scope glass from the rifle for protection, or for sight systems which are chosen for use in between multiple rifles. An example of this mount style is the 30mm mount designed by Vortex Optics. It normally costs around $250 USD
Sealing and Gas Purging for Rifle Scope Tubes
Wetness inside your rifle optic can ruin a day of shooting and your pricey optic by triggering fogging and producing 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.
Info on Rifle Optic Tube Gas Purging
Another part of preventing the accumulation of wetness inside of the rifle optic tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Given that this area is already occupied by the gas, the optic is less impacted by temp changes and pressure variations from the external environment which might possibly enable 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 look for.
