Quality Rifle Scope
As with reflex sights, it is crucial for a good riflescope that it meets the tough demands. High-quality branded riflescopes are usually all shooting-proof, even for large calibers. With very cheap riflescopes, caution is advised as the caliber increases. Even if the glass does not immediately fall out of the barrel, the adjustment can be slightly adjusted when the shot is fired without the shooter noticing. A nightmare for every sport shooter, because a good hit position is then almost impossible. For sport shooters who shoot at an illuminated target, a high light transmission is not crucial, so the diameter of the rifle scope should not be too large, 56mm tubes are intended for hunters who use the last light of dawn. In addition, the distance between the line of sight and the line of fire is relatively large, which has disadvantages when shooting at different distances and the weight of the target optics increases with its size.
The "reticle" replaces the crosshair in many rifle scopes, which was often used in rifle optics of older models. However, the crosshair is still used today in simple riflescopes. A crosshair consists of two threads stretched in a cross shape, mostly made of metal, which indicate the theoretical hit point to the shooter in their center. In modern target optics, the reticle is replaced by the reticle, which is engraved into one of the glass surfaces of the telescopic sight using laser technology. Most reticles are standardized, but many manufacturers also like to use slight modifications of the standardized reticles in their target optics. We have put together a selection of the most popular reticles here.
