How to Choose The Right Scope?


When you are on the hunt for a new rifle scope it is very important to focus on the need or task for it. These are tools that are highly specialized for different situations and having the right tool at the right time can make or break your game completely. 


Recognize what task the scope will be performing will take you on two different roads. Are you looking to go hunting or target shooting? These two paths alone will take you through hundreds of possibilities to choose from giving you plenty of "correct" choices. 


Choosing the primary reason for the rifle and the scope will start guiding you on the right direction.

How Does a Rifle Scope Work


A scope will improve your hunting or shooting accuracy significantly, and the quality of the scope you choose can actually matter even more than the quality of your rifle itself.


After all, a shooter can much more likely hit a target using a great scope with a mediocre rifle, but even the best rifle won’t be of much use in hitting targets with a bad scope.

Magnification

Light passes through the objective lens (which is away from the user), which in turn transmits light to the erector lens. The erector lens flips the image (so that it won’t appear upside down) and it passes to the magnifying lens.

Adjustments

A rifle scope will allow you to adjust for windage and elevation, so that you can account for wind direction and distance. Windage is the horizontal plane, while elevation is the vertical one.

Knobs

The two knobs allow you to actually adjust the scope for windage and elevation.
