Why You Need A Cheek Rest When Using a Riflescope
Riflescope Cheek Rests align your eye with the center of your riflescope for stress free aiming and more accurate shooting. But There's More to the Story...
Mass production riflestocks have cheek rests that are usually too low
for riflescope use. This is because they're intended to function with
BOTH riflescope and the much lower iron sights. You can make one of
these stocks work with a scope, and it will seem fine because you just
get such a nice sight picture out of a scope compared to iron sights.
BUT, you may not realize that (because the cheekrest is too low) you are
contorting and stressing the way you are holding the rifle. This
promotes an inconsistent hold that may be different everytime you aim
your rifle or every time you change shooting positions.
The Parallax Factor -
Parallax error is an optical aiming error in which the crosshairs move
when the position of your eye changes. Shooting a rifle with a too-low
cheekrest will cause you to have an inconsistent eye position. So in
addition to an inconsistent hold, a cheek rest that is too low will also
give you the most parallax aiming error due to the changing position of
your eye! Cheek Rests Make Scopes Shoot Better - A cheek rest that properly and consistently aligns your eye with your
riflescope will promote a consistent hold while it minimizes the
parallax error caused by changing eye positions.
