How to choose a scope for "General" shooting

Optics

Shooting at targets, steel plates, milk jugs or other objects for fun falls under our general category of shooting. Usually, the object is increased or decreased in size based on the accuracy and precision of the rifle set up and the shooter’s skills. A Large gong 42x48” is approximately 4.2 MOA at 1,000 yards. So, if your setup is MOA, i.e. it shoots a 1” ten shot group at 100 yards, it will be 10” at 1000 yards, so to hit that gong you will need a 4-MOA shooter and rifle setup.

Product Reviews

We are not professional magazine reviewers, we are users of the product or have had them sent to look over, we ave "no axe to grind" and so we can simply show you what we got and you can decide what you like! There are lots of video unboxings of various long range shooting and hunting products for you to enjoy!

Note: We have included the approximate street prices of the products we found online, these will change all the time and only be useful as a rough guide as to budgets and models.

We did an extensive look at the market for scopes and ranked them, but these are simple and quick lists for you to use to search for deeper professional reviews or to use to ask your friends in our Facebook group - We have a lot of videos but they are kept simple and not meant to replace some serious research on your part.
