Tactical Scopes: Field Test Results Summary & Overall Scores

I don’t have much comment on this. It is simply one of the most thoroughly done scope comparisons I’ve ever seen. The optics I use are most definitely not in the tested price brackets, as I don’t think I would really be taking advantage of the extra features, but the quality and quantity of information is impressive.

This is the executive summary and overall scores from an epic scope field test focused on long-range, tactical rifle scopes in the $1,500+ price range. This represents an unprecedented, data-driven approach to evaluating the best scopes money can buy. Over 400 hours have gone into this research, and the line-up and tests are built on advice from some of the most respected experts in the industry. My goal with this project was to equip fellow long-range shooters with as much hard data as I could reasonably gather, so they could see what they’re paying for.

I’ve published ridiculously exhaustive details, which you’re invited to read … but I’ll try to sum it up in this post.
