Removing dust and debris from the interior helps to rid the lens of unnecessary obstructions. Begin by dismounting the screws that are attaching the scope to the rifle – but be sure to use a properly sized screwdriver. From there, you can use an optical cleaning wipe or some fluids and cloths from a specifically designed kit. When the scope is remounted, you should notice a marked improvement, which will improve your marksmanship.
It’s certainly no secret that a scope vastly improves a hunter’s ability to zero in on potential prey. In order to squeeze off the best shot, accuracy and precision need to be optimized. All too often, hunters align their rifle scopes and then proceed to forget about basic maintenance procedures. With some minimum care and effort, you can keep your scope in pristine condition for years to come.
