CHOOSING A RIFLE SCOPE

To start let's not get hung up on magnification. You will find that everyone has some kind of advice on how much magnification you will need for a certain rifle/calibre. You will hear.... "you won't need any more than 4 times power on a .22 rim fire rifle".....well rubbish to that. Everyone has an opinion based on their own situation/experience or what they like and what they do. My preference may not be yours. So use a scope that works for you. I use a PREDATOR 3-9x40 HUNTER on my .22 and I don't have parallax problems because the riflescope has an adjustable objective lens. If I wanted to target rabbits at say 300 yards then I would not be using a .22 rimfire. Optics wise I would use a 6-24x50AOE PREDATOR ERADICATOR 6-24x50AOE or go one better and use a PREDATOR ILLUMINATOR 6-20x50AO I like to see my target up close and personal so I can place my shot for a humane kill. One shot. One clean kill. You should purchase a rifle scope that works for you. Too much magnification. Too little, only you can tell. You will have a good idea of your intended quarry and how you will need to view them.

IN GENERAL TERMS
Low Power...close range or moving target
Medium Power...hunting big game at a medium range
High Power... target shooting,varmint/small game at a distance
.

The good news. Todays technology has allowed the hunter the most versatile tool for his craft.... The variable powered rifle scope. While this may not be the choice or preference of every PREDATOR ....set up and used correctly the variable powered scope gives the hunter the versatility not only to have a scope with a wide field of view but to be able to get up close and very personal with the intended target. One shot. One clean kill.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A RIFLE SCOPE

A word of....
CAUTION !

While you are on your quest for the best optical solution you will come across various rifle scopes offered for sale as new on .....auction websites. While some may be selling such scopes of the genuine variety, a good many of these rifle scopes are sold with well known trade names on them but.........They do not come from the original brand supplier.

These people are using someone else's trade name for their own profit. If you spend some time to check things out and go to the genuine website you will find that some of the rifle scope's models offered by scamsters cannot be found on the suppliers website. So be careful, not all is as it appears.

On a lighter note....we here at PREDATOR want you to get the best from your chosen sport so we are continually working hard at finding the best hunting equipment that is tested and meets our standards of performance. For your peace of mind we offer you a money back gaurantee. Predator Money Back Gaurantee and Return Policy

THE BEST OPTICS AVAILABLE EQUAL......Field of view:

When you are hunting getting up close and personal with a charging animal is not ideal. When you have too much magnification you are not likely to be able to quickly lock on to a target....a wide field of view is vital at close range for quick target acquisition. Where high magnification comes in is when you are targeting at a distance.

To place shots, you need to be able to target and clearly see vital areas of the targets body......PREDATOR variable powered rifle scopes offer you the best of both worlds. Wide field of view and close quarter view. With a variable powered scope it is best to begin the hunt with a low power setting giving you a wide field of view then when you spot your intended quarry you can adjust your view and zoom in on the target to place your shot.

One Shot. One clean Kill.Light: To get a good clear crisp view through your rifle scope you need to have as much light as possible entering the scope tube. To allow the maximum amount of light into the tube you will need the largest practical objective lens. Light=clarity.

AO Adjustable objective:
Not always necassary but why settle for less than what you deserve and what just makes good common sense. With an adjustable objective lens your variable powered scope will never be out of focus.

Fully Multi Coated Lenses: Coatings are applied to the scope lenses to minimize reflection and to enhance light transmission. For maximum enjoyment from your chosen sport choose a rifle scope from Predator Rifle Scopes. Please check out our rifle scope range Check out our rifle scope range
