There is special rush making the long shot come in. Banging a steel target or placing the perfect shot on a whitetail right at the cusp of the comfort zone — its really what marksmen’s dreams are made of. But there are certain elements that must come into play to guarantee such attempts are successful and in the case of hunting ethical.
First and foremost is practice. Breathe control, trigger discipline, concentration — these and other shooting fundamentals must be honed to be razor sharp. The other factor that makes certain a long-range attempt is right on target is equipment. Perhaps chief among these is a high-quality optic that has the chops to draw a bead from the next county over.
The Styrka S5 4.5-14x44mm certainly fits this bill. From the company’s midline series of riflescopes, the optic provides ample magnification to make any realistic shot hit its mark. But Styrka hasn’t made its S5 4.5-14x44mm strictly a long-range role player, its lowest setting makes certain an offhand shot at a traditional range isn’t impeded by having too much glass.
As would be expected with a top-end scope, the company hasn’t skimped with the extras. The optic has an ample objective lens to ensure it gathers every wave of light available. Its windage and elevation adjustment, ¼ MOA per click, gives the shooter extreme control in dialing it in. And the scope’s side parallax adjustment zero’s in even the longest shot, making certain the crosshairs don’t swim no matter the distance.
The scope also boasts solid aircraft-grade aluminum outer housing is designed for the most rugged hunts. It’s precision machined erector tube system designed to keep its zero even in the most demanding conditions. And its lens surfaces are all coated, enhancing their light-gathering capabilities and producing crystal clear images.
Certainly, the long-range game isn’t for every hunter or shooter. But for those with the steadiest nerves who are up to the challenge, the Styrka S5 4.5-14x44mm definitely hits the bull’s eye.
For those shooting to set their crosshairs way down range, the Styrka S5 4.5-14×44 Plex Scope is an ideal choice. The magnification range ensures accuracy, even if there is plenty of prairie grass between you and your deer or any other critter. Get Yours Now
