Welcome back to the latest edition of TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast that features industry leaders talking about their backgrounds, company history, products and information that can help you become a better shooter.
Today we feature Jimmy Hamilton from Vortex Optics. Besides being a fantastic guy, Jimmy is hyper-knowledgeable in his field of shooting optic solutions. Vortex Optics has a full lineup of glass ranging from entry-level options for newer shooters to top-of-the-line options for competition and tactical applications. We talked about some optics basics – reticle choices, first focal plane versus second focal plane, optics budget for different guns and more. Please ignore my gaff when I mixup mildots and mils – anything over 100 yards is probably outside of my expertise. Enjoy the listen.
