Whether you shoot an AR-15, a bullpup, a SBR, an AK, or even a bullpup SKS - you know the importance of good optics on your rifle. Red Dot sights are an incredibly important tool in the serious hunter’s arsenal. Red Dot scopes are particularly favored by hunters for their visual superiority when keeping eyes on your prey.
Basically what a red dot scope does is produce a single red dot that points at the target you are aiming at. Once the scope is sighted in that red dot (occasionally green for day light shooting) becomes your cross hairs and if you don’t jerk or your target move at the wrong time it is deadly. While you can get a magnified red dot scope the unmagnified tends to work better and are more powerful.
For the best shot you can take, Red Dot scopes are preferred by novice and expert hunters alike—with the right calibration, these scopes make taking down the big and small game a sure thing.
