Straight-wall cartridges are very popular for a few reasons. Some hunters use them purely because they like the performance of a specific caliber. Many jurisdictions also ban the use of necked cartridges for hunting, leaving straight-wall calibers as the only option. The reasons for using these cartridges don’t matter. What matters is that you have the right equipment to support the caliber you’re using. Optimized specifically for straight-wall cartridges, Vortex has just introduced the new Crossfire II 3-9×50 Straight-Wall BDC riflescope.
