Steiner has expanded its line of hunting riflescopes with the release of Predator 8 series optics. Boasting 8X zoom, the Predator 8 riflescopes join the Steiner Predator 4 series to provide discerning big-game hunters versatility and precision.
Built on a rugged 30mm tube chassis, the Predator 8 boasts industry-leading light transmission, a massive field of view, and an illuminated reticle with 11 brightness settings. Foul weather and harsh climates also offer no problem for the Predator 8's performance, thanks to its fogproof and waterproof design, and broad -13-degrees Fahrenheit to +145-degrees Fahrenheit operating temperature.
The Predator 8 is offered in three different 8X zoom ranges: 2-16x42mm, 3-24x50mm, and 4-32x56mm. Hunters looking to take advantage of the riflescopes' precision reticle adjustment to accurately compensate for bullet drop at long distances will appreciate the audible and tactile 1/4-MOA ballistic turret. Included are different numbered turret rings that allow the shooter to customize the turret for quick elevation adjustment at pre-selected distances. The ballistic turret also provides a zero mode to permit fast and precise dial-back to the zero setting.
The Predator 8 2-16x42mm and the 3-24x50mm riflescopes both come with the Steiner E3 second focal plane reticle. Designed for the most popular big-game cartridges, the reticle features holdover compensation out to 400 yards and cascading windage dots to easily adjust for a 10 mph crosswind. For maximum long-range precision, the Predator 8 4-32x56mm stands ready with a high magnification and SCR (Special Competition Reticle) combination.
