confused2After marching toward a hegemony of precision riflescopes the last few years, the optics industry appears to be making concessions to hunters and shooters who donít want or need (or understand) MIL/MIL controls, gigantic 34mm tubes, and towering turrets. Thatís one way to look at the return to MOA-styled scopes this year. The other way is that optics brands are simply filling in their catalogs to offer a riflescope for every purpose.

I think thereís actually a third way to explain the backing off of first-plane milling reticles and the appearance this year of more minute-of-angle (MOA)-based aiming systems. Itís that once shooters experience dialing their knobs to hold on elevation and holding off for windage, they appreciate the speed and precision of that system delivered through Christmas-tree reticles.

Now, those experienced shooters want to bring that same level of long-distance precision to their hunting scopes. They want detailed reticles, but they want them in the second focal plane, and they want their references to be based on MOA. And they want sized-down scopes that are more portable than hefty precision target scopes. Based on the offerings plied at the 2019 SHOT Show, they have plenty of choices.

Here are some of the more interesting riflescopes that debuted at SHOT.

I would never go back to MOA.

I think the Bushnell LRHS is the ticket in 44mm with capped windage turret.

I want it old school simple. If I can't get a German #4 or #1 reticle in it, I am probably not going to buy it.

I had no problem hitting steel at 800 with holds using it.

I love the LHRS, I have the 3-12 on my AR10 in 6 Creedmoor

The donut is for when the scope is turned down low in power and for quick shots, dialed up in magnification for longer shots it gets completely "out of your way"

I have ran that 3-12 out to 1k with ease
