The choice of sight for accurate shooting in hunting,the advantages and disadvantages of different types
Inaccurate shooting and failures bring a lot of negative impressions to each hunter. Reasons for frequent misses can be quite a lot and not always they are the fault of the hunter. This article will tell you about the most common causes of failures.
Types of scopes
As a rule, on most types of hunting rifles, whether rifled or smooth-bore guns used mechanical sighting system of the «pillar-fly» optical or telescopic sights. The sight of the «pillar-fly» was a centuries-old tested and proved its reliability. However, these sights lose their precision optical or collimator sights. In addition, the hunter spends a lot more time to aim. This is due to the parallax effect, which provides that the human eye cannot focus simultaneously on three things — on the front sight, rear sight and target. Of course, experienced shooters easily focus simultaneously on two things — the rear sight and the front sight, allowing them to spend less time on aiming, than beginners.
As for optical and collimator sights when using them one is freed from parallax. It is also worth noting that in addition to accuracy, collimator sights have a high speed of aiming by playing on this parameter only laser sights. However, collimator sights — a rarity in the hunting rifles, and laser and did not talking.
Advantages collimating sights
Kalimatnya of sight differ in the principle of the device and its construction. The most common models of such scopes come with case 10-12 cm and a diameter of 4 cm In collimating sight there is no distortion of the image of the target and at power right eye sees the red dot, which acts as a marker for aiming. The sight automatically adjusts image contrast depending on the illumination level.
This is a huge advantage collimating sights unlike a traditional fly. No matter how long and carefully you aim, you will not be able to simultaneously capture eye traditional elements of sight and their target.
In addition, a huge advantage collimating of scope is that hunter can see a clear picture of their prey with both eyes at the same time, without any distortion. Also in cloudy and rainy weather, with low light or at night, this type of sight will be simply irreplaceable. With it, you’ll hit any target.
