    Tips for Choosing a Rifle Scope

    The ideal magnification is 3x to 9x. This scope allows for 9x magnification at the high range and 3x magnification at low range. Look for scopes that use knobs for magnification. These are easy to work with.

    A note about the lens: the bigger the lens in mm, the more light gets in. This generates higher resolution and clearer images. The most widely used is 40 mm. Bigger ones are available.

    The deer rifle dimensions are important, but accuracy and power are more significant. A large rifle looks impressive, but it can be difficult to carry.
