Scopes, despite their increasing power, are growing smaller in some cases. Nightforce has a new 1X-8X ATACR that is about the length of a good cigar, and Leupold was showing the Mark 6 3X-18X, which is not much bigger. The latter, by the way, has a 35mm tube, which probably means that scopes will grow fatter, and we may well see the end of the 1-inch scope tube ere long. Reticles grow more and more complex, and remind me of so many walls covered in hieroglyphics. Who the hell can interpret these things in the heat of battle?
