>Shotgun Scopes for Deer

Steven K. Ledin,

Shotgun scopes for deer are more popular every year. Slugs and guns shoot more accurately, greatly increasing the effective maximum range. The range is further enhanced by your ability to see your target clearly through a magnified rifle scope. Maximum ranges of 75 to 100 yards just a couple decades ago have doubled, and are getting farther every year with new technology. A scope for a rifled slug gun should have a few attributes. Long eye relief, important in preventing scope eye. A reasonable parallax correction distance. Most are 75 yards, and shooting closer or farther will have minimal …

>Swarovski Z6 Rifle Scopes

Steven K. Ledin,

Swarovski Z6 rifle scopes are causing quite a buzz in the optics industry, being one of the first, and certainly the best known manufacturer able to offer an incredible 6 times zoom on a riflescope. This makes it even easier to purchase a scope able to comfortably handle shots close and far with equal ease. A favorite Z6 model of mine will zoom from a low of 1.7 power to a maxumum of 10 power, and another model goes from two power to twelve. The Z6 1.7-10×42 weighs in at 16.6 ounces, and the Z6 2-12×50 tips the scales …

>Illuminated Reticle Rifle Scopes

Steven K. Ledin,

I get a lot of questions about illuminated reticle rifle scopes. Most of the questions are asking if they have a backup reticle if the illumination fails. The answer is yes. The crosshairs are standard black crosshairs and the illumination part comes from a light that shines on the reticle from inside the scope. The crosshairs are there with or without the illumination feature switched on. The riflescopes generally use readily available CR2032 batteries that can be found at most stores that carry batteries. They’re the ones that look like a nickel. The problem with most of these scopes is …
