Mark III Tactical Series Scopes – A Guide For Choosing the Best Reticle

Choosing the Correct Magnification
The scopes in the Mark III Tactical series are available in a wide range of magnifications and include variable magnification options. You may want to consider a set magnification if you consistently shoot from comparable distances or if you have the ability to use multiple scopes for your changing power needs.

A common mistake made by inexperienced marksmen is to quickly choose the most powerful scope available, believing that bigger is better. While powerful scopes are certainly an asset, they must be used in particular circumstances to infer their full benefit. In some instances, a very powerful scope can actually erode the quality of your shot.

If you do not already have a preference for the power of your scope, a good rule of thumb is to seek a scope that will place your target in your line of view as though it was directly in front of you. You do not want it to be too small, but you also do not want to be shooting at an image that belongs under a microscope.

Reticles
The old days of a simple cross or a simpler dot are long gone. Now marksmen can enjoy a range of reticles that are each specifically designed to serve a particular function and improve your shot in specific circumstances.

Here are some of the Reticles that are available within this line and the benefits that each scope offers.

Variable Power Scopes
Variable power scopes combine the best of both worlds – close range viewing when you need to make an accurate shot and wide field of view when you need to track a moving target. This means that with just one scope you are able to track a moving target and then quickly crank the power to take a long shot with pin-point accuracy.

Here are some of the Reticles that are available within this line and the benefits that each scope offers.
