What magnification do I need for hunting?

It depends on your hunting environment, but a versatile scope with variable magnification (e.g., 3-9x) is commonly recommended. For most Western hunting scenarios, a higher magnification can be valuable with many scopes going to 18x or higher.

Are there specific scopes for different types of hunting?

Yes, scopes vary for purposes like big game, varmint, or long-range hunting. Choose one tailored to your hunting style.

How do I zero my rifle scope?

What is the significance of a reticle in a scope?

The reticle helps you aim accurately. Popular types include duplex, BDC, and mil-dot reticles, each suited for different scenarios.

What is parallax adjustment on a rifle scope?
