If you hunt dangerous game, with a scope-sighted, hard-kicking rifle, the game might be even more dangerous than you think.

If you hunt sambar and other species that give few opportunities for a shot, you need a scope that won't let you down and gives the best field blending possible for quick target acquisition.

So, can you afford a scope that cuts field of view and recoil resistance but adds tunnel vision - just to save a few minutes when installing it?

Is it a great idea to get a bigger scope, just to claw back the FoV that image-movement has stolen?

'LIGHT AT THE START OF THE TUNNEL - Are rifle scopes off the rails?'
is a book about what's wrong with modern scopes.

It traces the riflescope's descent from mechanical-and-optical integrity to the dubious advances of constantly centred reticles, illumination and excess magnification, looking at the designs and specifications of many models and drawing on knowledgeable opinion to reach conclusions.

The author also goes into where you might look for the best scopes made today, good but old scopes on the Internet, collecting and mounting old scopes, notes on makers and how they could get back on track.
