Basics of Scopes

Powers - Popular scopes for a rifle in the East are 3 x 9 power scopes. The 3 is the lowest power or magnification of these scopes and the 9 is the highest power. The more power of the magnification the less field of view conversely less power scopes for a rifle offer larger fields of view. As an example 3 x 9 power scope means the scopes adjust from a low of 3 power to the maximum of 9 power. If expecting longer shots with the rifle then narrow your search to higher power scopes. If short rifle shots are expected for instance hunting in brush or heavy woods then research lower power rifle scopes for your firearm.
