This year we put more scopes and binoculars than ever (27 total) into the hands of more testers than ever, including myself; gun writer and F&S contributing editor Richard Mann; and University of Rochester optics professor Jim Zavislan and four of his hunting buddies and fellow optics nuts: Jeff Arndt, Joel Hoose, Marty Lasher, and Tim O’Connor. The result is our biggest, most exhaustive optics test to date.
There were some clear trends: In scopes, it’s all about massive tubes, exposed turrets, and sophisticated sighting systems for long-range hyperaccuracy. There’s an uptick, too, in first-focal-plane reticles, with which subtensions and holdover values remain the same at any magnification. What’s that? You just want a scope for normal hunting? Don’t worry. That’s here, too.
