Before SHOT Show 2023 the internet was a ablaze mentioning a 10-60x scope. Most actually thought it was a joke. Turns out, it’s not. It also comes from one of the top Optic manufactures out there, Schmidt and Bender.
Schmidt and Bender gives us a First Focal Plane (FFP) 10-60×56 Mil-Radian scope. This was built with the long range competition shooter in mind such as Extreme Long Range, F-Class, and bench rest. When talking to Schmidt about what pushed them to create a scope with a 60x magnification range they immediately said ELR. It has now since been used by professional ELR shooters on the range during competitions.
ELR is a match in which shooters can be pushing about to 2 miles. Even at that distance, ELR shooters are still using the standard precision rifle scopes that can get 20-30x magnification. Imagine now added 30x to that and what you will be able to see.
Now with all of that magnification, how’s the eye box at full power?
The 56 mm objective lens diameter with a light transmission of over 90 % provides a clear, bright and high contrast image even at extreme magnification.-Schmidt and Bender
