What range is a 1X6 scope Good For?

When hunting in the woods, I always use a low-powered variable optic, and my first choice is the Vortex Optics Strike Eagle 1-6x. The 1x setting is perfect visibility at close range and the 6x is a clear shot to 250 yards.

What does 1X6 scope mean?

The common way you’d see one of these written out, using our Strike Eagle LPVO as an example, would be “Strike Eagle® 1-6×24” with the 1-6x meaning it goes from 1x on the low end, to 6x on the high end, and the objective lens is 24mm in diameter.

How far can you shoot with 6X zoom?

For example, a scope set at 6X will make a deer standing at 200 yards (600 feet) look like it’s just a bit more than 30 yards away (100 feet to be exact). It shouldn’t be difficult to aim at an animal that appears as though it’s at 30 yards—most of the time.

How far can a 1 6×24 scope shoot?

It features a 1-6x zoom range, making it extremely easy to use from close range all the way out to 600 yards.

How far is a 4x scope Good For?

Meanwhile, most hunters can consistently hit a deer in the vitals out to 200 yards or more with a 3x or 4x scope. Still, variable power scopes that can be set at higher magnifications can make long range shots easier, provided you’ve got a steady shooting rest.

Is a 6X scope too much?

In hunting situations, 6X will be too much long before it will be too little. 6x is about perfect for stand hunting. If it is what you like, go with it. FWIW, I hunted with a fixed 4x for many years, shot deer out beyond 300 yds, and never wanted more.
