Slings & Things: SPOTTING SCOPES

SCOPES

The spotting scope is, next to the rifle, usually the single biggest dollar investment a High Power shooter will make. Chosen wisely, it may be the last money he'll spend for a good long while (maybe ever). Chosen poorly, it can become the biggest money-wasting experience imaginable. I took this segment very seriously because of that. It's not just a matter of choosing one brand or of just spending all the money you can possibly afford. No. It's learning what matters, and what doesn't, and then finding how to apply that information to all the different choices out there. There are more options in scopes than for any single item I know of discussed in Slings & Things.

SCOPES
This a combination of technical information, lots of experience (mine and others), and subjective viewpoints on the (normally) second most expensive assembly we own. Don’t miss reading this. Don’t get another scope until you know what’s in here. I think it’s that good, and it turned out to be pretty simple when I spelled out the options I’d back up. It turns out that the next best scope below the six-hundred dollar recommendation was about a fourth of that cost.


Objective talk on objectives. Don't be fooled by numbers. Also lens coatings and quality, and reality. Eyepiece selection. This matters way on more than most folks ever imagine. Learn why, and which.

The scope won't work on the firing line on its own, and there are page after page discussing options in mounts and perches. Tripods, bipods, carts, rods, heads, and all are covered over. Don't get the wrong thing! (Or the wrong combination.) Same as with the scope hisself -- it's not all about how much money you spend.
