If you've ever looked through a spotter scope and watched a bullet cut its way through the air, you've seen Bullet Trace. If you can see it, you can film it, and you can definitely use it for shot review.
When you’re using a scope, let’s be honest - you’re going to be outside… and the outside world is full of grit, grime, dust, mud, strange little fibers. There’s stuff out there, and it’s going to get on your scope. Today, we’re going to be looking at how to get your scope to look as pretty as when you first laid eyes on it.
Once again we’re in the shop, and today we’re talking about optics. You probably wonder why I’ve got a couple rifles set up here. Well, they’re very similar: both are M98 Mauser actions, both are chambered off the Winchester 284 cartridge, custom barreling… The difference is we have a second focal plane and we have a first focal plane.
Today I want to talk about mounting an optic you finally purchased. I’m sure you shopped around, got the style you like. There’s a lot of options you had to decide before you bought that piece of glass. Now let’s talk about how you’re going to mount it to the rifle, the proper way - to keep it from losing zero and from scratching the tube up when you’re adjusting it, trying to get it just how you want it.
