Stalking is a hunting method, where a hunter has to sneak up to the animal. In this way, we made some tests of high-end hunting rifle scopes for stalking. Because of physical challenge in stalking hunting, small and light equipment helps a lot. I mean it’s not necessary, you can use bulky and heavy rifle scopes, but with them, you will have problems getting through the woods and you will be more tired than with smaller and lighter rifle scopes. Stalking is also done many times in the mountains. A must in this category are capped turrets. When crawling in the woods through the branches and bushes, caps are protecting the turrets and also preventing from accidental turns. Also, the objective lens diameter of these rifle scopes is smaller than usual, from 32 to 44 mm and 1 inch or 30 mm tube or rail mounting. For stalking purpose those…

We made some tests of high-end hunting wide angle rifle scopes and compared all the main features. These rifle scopes have true 1x power for hunting with both eyes open, (except the Zeiss Victory V8 1.1-8×30) an easily usable reticle with a very strong illumination that is usable at day-light by strong sun, or even at snow where the visibility of the red dot is challenging. Also, a big field of view is a must in this category of rifle scopes, because in most cases the game is running and with a small field of view there would be very difficult to come on the target in that short time. All rifle scopes in this comparison have variable magnification, with a zoom range from 5x till 8x. Except for the Zeiss Victory V8, all rifle scopes have a main tube diameter of 30mm (Zeiss 36mm), and most of them can…
