Have you wondered what Zoom is best for long range? or how to choose the correct amount of zoom for your rifle scope for 1,000 yards? In this video I set up a full size IPSC target and look through my optic at 1,760 1,000 and 500 Yards to give you an idea of how much detail each zoom provides and give you an idea of how your current scope might look. Scope zoom at long range is a personal preference so here is a look at multiple ranges compared directly.

Scopes used in this video;
Sightron SIII 8-32×56 MOA Second focal plane
Vortex Viper PST gen 1 6-24×50 MOA first focal plane
