Shot ShowIn our SHOT Show reports, we’ve provided in-depth coverage of notable new optics from March (DEON), Leica, Nightforce, Schmidt & Bender, and Zeiss. To learn more about new riflescopes, spotting scopes, rangefinders, and binoculars from other manufacturers, you can download the January 16th (Friday) edition of the SHOT Daily.

Just posted online, this NSSF e-zine dedicates five pages to new products from all the well-known optics manufacturers, including Bushnell, Burris, Leupold, Nikon, Pentax, and Swarovski. Plus, on page 64 of the Jan. 16th SHOT Daily, there is an in-depth feature on Nikon’s new hunting scopes, including the Predator Hunter with BDC reticle, and the low-magnification (1.1-4×24) 30mm African Series scopes, designed for dangerous game. The Predator Hunter bullet-drop-compensating (BDC) reticle has a center circle that subtends a coyote’s vital area at 100 yards, for quick sighting and target acquisition. Nikon’s new scopes, “are an example of an increase in specificity of hunting and shooting products,” according to SHOT Daily.
