Choosing the Right Riflescope for Your New Rifle Build

Whether you are a seasoned hunter or just starting out, selecting the right riflescope for your new rifle build is crucial for success in the field. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Here are some important factors to consider when selecting your riflescope, along with why ZeroTech Optics is the best choice for your next hunting trip.

Weight and Size 

Overall weight will always be a consideration for hunters, however, the features you require in a riflescope will dictate the weight range of your selection to some extent. The key here is to consider the features that are important to you and purchase the riflescope that best suits your needs. Afterall, your scope is the most important link between you and your rifle, it’s not always the best decision to compromise on your optic to save a few ounces. Consider less critical areas where you can save those few ounces, like the gear in your pack or even a carbon fiber rifle stock or a carbon fiber barrel.

Optical Power and Zoom Range 

Selecting the right zoom range for your scope is important to ensure that you can accurately engage targets at various distances. A lower magnification is ideal for shorter ranges and quick target acquisition, while a higher magnification is better suited for longer distances.


The features of your rifle scope will also depend on your individual needs. If you frequently shoot in rugged terrain, target turrets may be the best choice. If you prefer a clean look or want to minimize the chance of accidental adjustments, capped turrets may be a better option.

Glass Quality and Light Transmission 

The quality of the glass in your scope is crucial for a clear and bright image, especially in low light conditions around dawn and dusk. ZeroTech selects the highest quality lenses paired with the most premium lens coatings to ensure optimum light transmission. Ultimately, this helps to ensure our customers the best possible experience in all lighting and weather conditions.

Reticle Choice 

Lastly, the reticle choice is an important consideration. For hunting in dense forests, a simpler reticle with fewer sub tension markings may be better suited. For long-range precision shooting, a reticle with more intricate and detailed sub tensions can help facilitate precision shots and allow windage and elevation to be completely compensated by using the reticle instead of dialing the turrets. Of course, in situations where time permits, shooters can utilize the turrets.
