Mueller Speed Shot Rifle Scope Review
The Mueller Speed Shot Rifle Scope is one of the best short to medium range scopes on the market and the price can’t be beat for the quality that you get. One of the big selling points of this scope is that it has an etched reticle instead of one powered by batteries, so you aren’t going to lose the use of your scope at a critical moment, such as in the middle of a competition or right at the moment when your prey darts into view.
This new speed shot scope features a terrific illumination system with eleven brightness settings that is designed to be seen even during daylight hours, which you can decide to use or not and there is very little tube glow. The field of view is very wide through this scope and the combined features that you get for the price is actually quite impressive, considering that similar scopes sell for 3-4 times the cost of this optic.
It is perfectly named because it has been designed for speed shots where you need to have the scope up to your eye and shoot a fast-moving target, or shoot very quickly at a slow moving target such as for bear hunting. Besides bear hunting, this scope is perfect for close-range squirrel hunting, turkeys and hogs, or really any fast moving, medium to close range prey.
The disadvantages of this scope include the fact that it is quite heavy, just over 17 ounces, and when you don’t use the illumination, you have a really hard time seeing the dot on black objects – because the dot is itself black.
