There is an old adage amongst shooters when it comes to buying a rifle scope. “Spend more on your scope than you spent on your rifle”. The reasoning being, no matter how good the rifle is, it will be limited by the optic you use to aim when it counts.

 

A sub MOA rifle will not group if the scope you are using won’t hold zero, you can’t hit what you can’t see, and you will never nail the longer shots if the turrets don’t track as they should. The theory here is true, but does that adage still hold up today?
