There are several things to consider before you open your wallet and invest in that next rifle scope. You’ll have to determine the rifle — and its caliber along with the resulting recoil — as a starting point. A budget, your hunting conditions, and your shooting range to most target species should all be considered. And again, remember recoil.
Bushnell Trophy 1.75-4x 32mm
This iconic manufacturer offers rifle scopes for nearly any pursuit. Hunters could start with the Trophy 1.75-4x32mm rifle scope that is offered with a Realtree AP camo coating on the exterior surface. This scope is promoted as a versatile, all-around, big-game-hunting optic that’s great for slug guns, and lever guns, which means the rifle scope can handle recoil. This scope also features a fast-focus eyepiece, has a Bushnell Circle-X reticle, and delivers 91 percent light transmission through a one-piece tube. The scope is made for the outdoors and is waterproof, fog proof and shockproof.
Nikon Active Target Special 4-12X40mm
Nikon offers hunters, shooters, riflemen and handgunners more than two dozen scopes to help them see the target and make an accurate shot. Among these products is the Active Target Special 4-12×40 riflescope that sports a Realtree MAX-1 exterior coating. This scope features spring-loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets, has a BDC Active Target Reticle and will help the user see the target clearly with a quick-focus eyepiece. The scope uses ARD (Anti-Reflective Device) Technology and fully multi-coated optics. The rifle scope is also designed for use with Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology — a system that enables users to discover the exact aiming points at various yardages based on the specific ammunition and load. The scope would obviously be great for big game hunting and also for predator pursuits. – realtree.com
