Rifle scopes allow you to exactly align a rifle at various targets by lining up your eye with the target over a distance. They accomplish this through magnifying the target by employing a set of lenses within the scope. The scope’s positioning can be dialed in for consideration of various environmental elements like wind and elevation increases to account for bullet drop.
The scope’s function is to help the shooter understand exactly where the bullet will land based on the sight picture you are viewing via the scope as you align the scope’s crosshair or reticle with the intended target. Most modern-day rifle scopes and optics have around eleven parts which are arranged inside and outside of the scope. These scope parts consist of the rifle scope’s body, lenses, adjustment turrets or dials, focus rings, and other elements. See all eleven parts of scopes.
Rifle Scope Varieties
Rifle scopes can be either “first focal plane” or “second focal plane” type of scopes. Finding the best type of rifle optic is based around what type of shooting you plan to do.
First Focal Plane Glass
Focal plane scopes (FFP) come with the reticle in front of the magnification lens. This triggers the reticle to increase in size based upon the level of zoom being used. The benefit is that the reticle measurements are the same at the magnified distance as they are at the non magnified distance. As an example, one tick on a mil-dot reticle at 100 yards without having “zoom” is still the very same tick at one hundred yards using 5x “zoom”. These kinds of scopes are practical for:
- Quick acquisition, far away types of shooting
- Shooting situations where estimations are low
- Experienced shooters who recognize their aim point “hold over” plus “lead” ratios for their rifles
- Shooters who don’t mind the reticle is bigger and uses up more visual eyesight room than a SFP reticle
Info About Second Focal Plane Scopes
Second focal plane scopes (SFP) include the reticle to the rear of the magnification lens. In the FFP example with the SFP scope, the 5x “zoom” 100 yard tick would be 1/5th of the non “zoom” tick measurement.
- Far away kinds of shooting where shooters have extra time to make ballistic computations
- Shooting where most shots happen within shorter distances and ranges
- Shooters who choose a clearer optic picture without area taken up by the bigger FFP reticle
Magnification for Scopes
The quantity of magnification a scope provides is identified by the size, density, and curvatures of the lenses inside of the rifle scope. The magnification of the scope is the “power” of the scope.
Single Power Lens Scope Facts
A single power rifle optic and scope will have 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 zoom of this kind of optic can not change considering that it is a set power scope.
About Variable Power Lens Optics
Variable power rifle scopes can be tweaked between magnified levels. The power change is achieved by using the power ring part of the scope near the rear of the scope by the eye bell.
Power and Range Correlations
Here are some advised scope power settings and the ranges where they can be effectively used. Highly magnified optics will not be as efficient as lower magnification rifle scope glass given that too much zoom can be a bad thing. The very same idea applies to longer ranges where the shooter needs adequate power to see exactly where to best aim the rifle at the target.
Lens Covering for Optics
All modern-day rifle optic lenses are coated. Lens finish can be an important element of a rifle when looking into high end rifle optics and scope systems.
Info on Scope Lens Coatings – HD Versus ED
Some scope makers likewise use “HD” or high-definition lens coverings which use various techniques, polarizations, components, and chemicals to draw out a wide range of colors and viewable quality through the lens. Some scope makers use “HD” to refer to “ED” meaning extra-low dispersion glass.
Single Rifle Glass Lens Finishing Versus Multi-Coating
Different optic lenses can likewise have various finishings used to them. All lenses generally have at least some type of treatment or covering applied to them prior to being used in a rifle scope or optic.
This lens treatment can protect the lens from scratches while decreasing glare and other less beneficial things experienced in the shooting environment while sighting in with the scope. The quality of a single layered lens depends on the scope manufacturer and how much you paid for it.
Some scope manufacturers also make it a point to specify if their optic lenses are covered or “multi” covered. This implies the lens has multiple treatments applied to the surfaces. If a lens receives numerous treatments, it can show that a manufacturer is taking several actions to combat different environmental elements like an anti-glare coating, a scratch resistant anti-abrasion finishing, followed by a hydrophilic covering. This additionally doesn’t necessarily mean the multi-coated lens is much better than a single covered lens. Being “much better” hinges on the maker’s lens treatment techniques and the quality of glass used in developing the rifle optic.
Anti-water Lens Coatings
Water on a lens doesn’t help with keeping a clear sight picture through a scope at all. Lots of top of the line and high-end scope makers will coat their lenses with a hydrophilic or hydrophobic finishing which is water repellent.
Options for Installing Rifle Scopes on Long Guns
Installing options for scopes can be found in a couple of options. There are the basic scope rings which are individually installed to the scope and one-piece mounts which cradle the scope. These various types of mounts also usually come in quick release versions which use toss levers which enable rifle operators to quickly install and dismount the optics.
Hex Key Glass Rings
Standard, clamp style mounting scope rings use hex head screws to mount to the flattop design Picatinny scope installation 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 is created for long distance accuracy shooting. This type of scope mount is wonderful for rifles which need a durable, sound mount which will not move no matter how much the scope is moved or abused.
Glass Mounts with Quick-Release Cantilever Rings
These kinds of quick-release rifle scope mounts can be used to rapidly 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 complementary style mount. The quick detach mount style is CNC machined from anodized 6061 T6 aluminum and the mounting levers attach nicely to a flat top type Picatinny rail. This enables the scope to be sighted in while on the rifle, taken off of the rifle, and remounted while preserving the original sighting settings. These types of mounts come in beneficial for shooting platforms which are carried a lot, to take off the optic from the rifle for protection, or for sight systems which are chosen for use in between several rifles. An example of this mount style is the 30mm mount from Vortex Optics. It usually costs around $250 USD
Sealing and Gas Purging for Rifle Scope Tubes
Wetness inside your rifle scope can mess up a day of shooting and your expensive optic by causing fogging and developing residue inside of the scope tube. A lot of scopes prevent wetness from entering the scope tube with a system of sealing O-rings which are waterproof.
Scope Gas Purging
Another element of preventing the accumulation of moisture inside of the rifle optic’s tube is filling the tube with a gas like nitrogen. Because this space is currently taken up by the gas, the scope is less impacted by temperature level shifts and pressure variations from the outdoor environment which may possibly permit water vapor to permeate in around the seals to fill the vacuum which would otherwise exist. These are good qualities of a good rifle scope to look for.
