Schmidt Bender Riflescopes
What Schmidt Bender scope is right for me? The answer depends.
Most dangerous game is taken at close range. Utilizing a short focal length scope like the Schmidt Bender Zenith 1.1-4x24 is ideal. This Schmidt Bender scope has a wide field of view which allows you to pick out your target quickly and shoot with both eyes open on low magnification.
For all-around shooting, consider the Schmidt Bender Zenith 1.5-6 x 42.
Set on low magnification, it is perfect for close shots in thick forest and bush, while set on high magnification it gives the ability to make most of the longer shots that you may encounter.
If you tend to hunt open country, or game typically requiring longer shots, most hunters want higher magnification. If you hunt varmints, the Schmidt Bender Varmint 4-16 x 50 is the only first focal plane model in its class. It offers a specialized reticle for small targets at extended ranges.
Another frequent question is whether or not an illuminated reticle might be valuable. Our opinion is that if you can afford the extra cost of an illuminated reticle, buy it! You only need to miss the shot of a lifetime once to regret not having had it. Although an illuminated reticle does add about three ounces to your gun, the ability to shoot much later or earlier in the day makes it well worth having.
