Aims of the Riflescope Review Site
We are here to provide the most detailed information possible on the different models of rifle scope available. I will be providing the specifications of many riflescopes and including what other purchasers of these riflescopes have said when writing their own Riflescope Reviews.
The Bushnell riflescopes reviewed on this site are the Bushnell Elite 3200, Bushnell Elite 4200 and Bushnell Elite 6500 ranges. From Leupold I am going to cover the Leupold Mark 4, Leupold Mark AR, other various Leupold Vx models. A range of reviews on the Nightforce nxs riflescopes will also be available and from the Nikon ranges the Nikon Prostaff and Nikon Monarch Riflescopes will also be reviewed.
All these 4 manufacturers offer a range of scopes that suit many purposes.
Riflescope reviews about Bushnell Elite scopes will reveal that one of the best things from Bushnell is their low light performance at a lower price than the other manufacturers.
Leupold scopes are best known for being general all round good riflescopes available for a decent price.
Nightforce riflescopes are truly top of the range scopes that offer an envious quality coupled with superior optics.
Nikon riflescopes offer a large variety of low budget scopes and high power, quality scopes.
Power of the Riflescope Required
The type and power of riflescope that you buy should be dictated solely by the use that you have in mind for it as there is no, ‘one size fits all’, type of riflescope.
A quick guide to what power riflescope you will need is shown below:
- 1×5 Low power riflescopes are best used with shotguns and hunting in woods for deer.
- 3×9 or 3×10 medium power scopes are suitable for a wider range from brush to further afield targets.
- 6×24 or 8.5×30 high power scopes have the highest magnification settings and are best when a truly clear optic at long range is needed.
Types of Reticle
There are a number of different reticles available within each manufacturers ranges. The illustration below shows some of the more common types that you might see.
Other Things To Look For
In general what you should look for in any riflescope is that it is waterproof, tried and tested, and has a lifetime guarantee. If a manufacturer is offering a lifetime guarantee then you can be sure of the quality of the riflescope in question.
