The annual SHOT Show provides hunters and shooters with a look at the latest guns and gear, and this year was no exception. The 2014 SHOT Show was for the most part dominated by tactical and long-range equipment. It follows, then, that this year’s optics would go along with those same themes, and that has proven to be true.
Even budget-priced scopes are now incorporating tactical features like ballistic reticles. Resettable turrets were popular, as were larger scope bodies and illuminated reticles. As shooters stretch their limits, optics companies are doing their best to keep up with the demand, offering new options for shooters in every price range. Here are a list of the best new rifle scopes at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
