Q: Using a super thin edge-to-edge scope means wider field of view?
A: For SOME of so-called edge-to-edge scopes, the answer is NO.
Q: Oh, how can I tell them?
A: We can see it clearly in the pictures.
But on Picture 2 when the eye relief shorten to 80mm (3.1inch), the field of view becomes WIDER.Picture 1 shows the situation of obtaining a clear edge-to-edge image when the eye relief is 95mm (3.8inch) .
Q: Oh yes, I noticed that. How can that happen?
A: The reason is although some thin edge scopes can provide you a full clear sight picture that will fill your eyepiece entirely, they will also sacrifice some field of view around the edge and block a part of the reticle.
Q: I see. What this situation will affect my shooting when I use these scopes?
A: It means these thin edge-to-edge scopes provide a SMALLER field of view than the ordinary ones. This will put you at a disadvantage when searching for the target especially at the low magnification.
Q: Thanks for the explanation. I now understand the situation behind it.
A: You are welcome. As a serious shooter you need a serious scope.Pls check the riflescopes below,I believe you will need them:
Riflescope with Edge-to-Edge image:
Riflescope with full F.O.V:

Dummy round and snap caps often appear at the same time and they can use interchangeably. Both of them belong to training ammunition. So when the shooters train by using these, this will be safe.
