Best Rifle Optics For Your Rifle
Pairing an optic system to an AR Rifles comes down to preference and utility.
Why Use An Optics?
It all comes down to practicality. Lining up your target is much easier, quicker and a non-brainer with a scope than to an iron sight.
Scopes eliminate the frustration associated when the shooter needs to switch their focus from rear sight to a rear sight.
The Right Tool
You don’t use a mallet to hammer deck nails into the patio, right? Choosing the optics to serve your shooting format will help decrease loss of game and increase performance ratio.
One rule to take heed: if your target is less than 100 yards, think low power maginification. Low power is better than higher during this distance; higher magnifaction will make the target look blurry because it so close-up.
If your target is long-range, then you’ll want to go for the higher magnification scopes.
Breaking down the magnification numbers
3-9×40 = 3 means three power or 3X. Simply means the target will appear three times closer than it normally does. 9 means nine power or 9Xs closer than it normally appears. 40 is the objective lens diameter in millimeters. This is a variable scope, which means you’ll be able to change magnification from three to nine and anywhere in between.
Remember, when outfitting your AR Rifle with a scope know your target format and if it will be consistent then use a rifle optic that is best suited for your shooting.
