Okay, I'm looking around at scopes and I realize that I know next to nothing about them. So I thought I'd ask a newb question about what the descriptions of the scopes (more importantly, the numbers) mean. **the scopes below are picked out at random, and I'm not in the market for any scope at this time, just using them as examples** Bushnell Banner 6-18x50 Rifle Scope Matte Multi-X 716185 Riflescope What does " 6-18x50 " mean? Leupold VX-3 4.5-14x50mm Long Range Riflescope What does " 4.5-14x50mm" mean? Im guessing the first number is the power of the scope? (1 being the lowest, and in the Bushnell, the 6 is the highest)? Or am I totally off base here? Thanks for helping me out, I've always been totally befuddled by these things!
