How choosing the right riflescope can help you enjoy more successful moments on your hunt.
Kevin Coles, product specialist at ZEISS Hunting, breaks down what you need to know about their latest range of riflescopes.
Q: Do different hunting styles require a distinct type of riflescope?
A: It’s worth considering your preferred hunting style when picking a new scope. The ZEISS V8 riflescopes are designed for all hunting disciplines and situations, whether you prefer driven hunts, stalking, high seat or night shoots.
The V8 1.1-8x24 riflescope is great for driven hunts. I would recommend the V8 1.8-14x50 for high seat or night hunts and the V8 2.8-20x56 is ideal for stalking. The V8 4.8-35x60 is tailormade for long-range hunts.
ZEISS V8 riflescopes are incredibly versatile, allowing you to design your rifle to suit your needs, without compromising on performance. They are available in three illuminated reticles. Reticle 43 is excellent for fast, long shots combined with the finest illuminated dot. Reticle 54 is best for driven hunts and reticle 60, our most popular choice, offers ultra-fine dot precision, perfect for pin-point accuracy and minimal target coverage.

Q: How do ZEISS V8 riflescopes differ from previous models?
A: The V8 models now have an elegant new 30 mm tube compatible with most rifles, for easier mounting and simple assembly. It’s extremely lightweight, compact, robust and provides a perfectly balanced setup.
The ZEISS V8 riflescopes are also equipped with an extra-large eye box for comfortable viewing that offers the hunter effortless, fast target acquisition – a considerable advantage for guest shooters and driven hunts.
Q: Why choose ZEISS Hunting when searching for new rifle equipment?
A: We have over 175 years of experience making lenses and are pioneers of science in optics. Our founder, Carl Zeiss, began challenging the limits of imagination in 1846 when research in this field was still in its infancy. It’s his vision we carry with us today, dedicating our passion and demand for excellence, to inspire others to see the world around them in a new way.
Hunting is about being at one with nature, embracing the wilderness and facing the elements up close. On your journey, it’s integral to have the right equipment with you to help you make the very most of your experience.
Our products are tested in extreme environments that far surpass any hunting conditions to make sure you can rely on them when you need them most. The latest V8 riflescopes are no different and represent the very best of qualities we’re known for.
