Tips & Tactics | Kristy Titus: Sight Picture

posted on March 5, 2020

Having a clear sight picture is essential to making precise and accurate shots. When shooting with a rifle, a scope is a great tool that can help shooters see a sight picture that would otherwise be faraway, near and clear. However, taking a shot with the wrong sight picture in your scope will end up hurting your shot outcome. A clear indicator of an incomplete or incorrect sight picture is scope shadowing, which can be detected by a darkened area in your sight picture when looking through the scope. If you’re seeing this shadow, you're probably looking through your scope at an angle. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains how to correct this mistake. Host Gabby Franco also has some advice on proper eye relief—or the distance between your scope and your eye.
