If you are going to buy Leupold Rimfire scopes in 2018, there are some things you will need to look for when shopping for them.


Here are just some of the things you should start off with. Things that will help you choose the perfect scope for the rifles you use.


How much magnification should your scope have? — A scope magnifies everything in its field of vision, so you want to be sure you choose the right magnification for your needs. After all, if you are going to be hunting game at only 200 yards or less, there is no need to buy a scope that will give you 1,000 yards or more visibility. Remember, the higher the magnification in Leupold Rimfire scopes, the more expensive the scope will be. So save your money when necessary.


How heavy is the scope? — Everything you add onto a rifle increases the weight of the rifle, and makes it heavier to carry around, more difficult to balance the rifle and more difficult to use. That is why you should choose always choose the most lightweight scope you can find for your rifle.


Thin center thin cross hairs — Be sure the Leupold Rimfire scopes you look at have very thin center thin cross hairs. After all, when you look through the scope you want to be able to see the wildlife in the cross hairs, and not have the cross hairs be so thick they are completely obliterating your view.


Do you need illuminated reticles? — While some hunters think having an illuminated reticle in a Leupold Rimfire scope would make it easier to see wild life they are aiming at, this is not always true.


In fact, having an illuminated reticle can often cause the visual area to look washed out, thus causing any wildlife in your vision to be too difficult to see.


Fingertip adjustment turrets — Another feature on some Leupold Rimfire scopes in 2018 is fingertip adjustment turrets, with some rifle owners believing they are necessary if they want to be a good shot.


In fact, fingertip adjustment turrets are not only completely unnecessary, they also add an expense onto a Leupold Rimfire scope that is simply not needed.


Large objective lenses — The larger the objective lenses in your Leupold Rimfire scope, the heavier the scope and your rifle will be. The more expensive they will be too, and the more difficult the scope will be to mount. Go for smaller objective lenses, and you will have a much nicer experience.
