Today, I want to talk to you about a tactical tip that can be a game-changer when it comes to shooting in low-light situations with your precision rifle. Sometimes, in the shooting world, we tend to take certain things for granted as common knowledge. But when we have students who are new to shooting or precision rifles, questions arise that make us realize not everyone knows these essentials. So, let's dive into the world of low-light shooting, particularly during dusk and dawn, and explore how the right optics and techniques can make all the difference.
The Importance of Optics
I want to emphasize the critical role optics play when you're shooting in low-light conditions. One of the key factors you need to consider is the size of the objective lens on your scope. The objective lens, located at the front of the scope, determines how much light your scope can gather. A larger objective lens allows more light to enter, making it extremely valuable in low-light conditions....
Communication is key and we can be more effective when we are honest with those we are working with.
If it seems like sometimes your gun just isn't shooting right, there's a couple things you can check.
First, did you start dialing in with your 100 yd zero? Sometimes, this is all it takes to get back to shooting like you and your gun know you can. Always start and end you session with setting your scope back to the 100 yd zero.
Second, do a quick equipment inspection and make sure nothing is loose. On the video above, the screws were loose on the scope mount and the scope moved. This of course affected our accuracy.
These two quick things can save you a lot of frustration.
