Big-game hunters out West scanning wide-open vistas want reliable spotting scopes. Bowhunters in the Southeast want a compact yet clear, crisp and powerful binocular to count antler points or see through brush. Everyone wants a rangefinder with a load of options but foremost, a great battery and definitive distance display.

This year's best new optics cover those checklist items and more. Here are some of the new ones introduced at SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

Long-range shooters have a new scope to consider in the Bushnell Match Pro ED, a 5-30x56 FFP that has an ED (extra low dispersion) Prime 56mm objective with EXO Barrier. Harsh weather conditions don't stand a chance against this scope. Magnification is increased 5x to 30x, and the tube diameter is larger at 34mm for a 30 MIL elevation range. Both turrets lock, and the elevation turret has an Easy Set zero-stop and two-stage pop-up rev indicator. Bushnell says this "fully featured elevation turret ensures the shooter knows what revolution they're on and instills repeatable confidence back to zero." Other features include updated illumination, 11 brightness settings, a new DM2 reticle, and an adjustable 15-yard parallax side focus that allows you to switch from centerfire to rimfire for hunting, plinking or competition. $699 | bushnell.com

GPOTAC 6X 4.5-27x50i PLRi Riflescope

The new Spectra 6X 1.5-9-44i from German Precision Optics now comes with the all-purpose G4i reticle, a super design that helps put you on target easier and faster. The illuminated dot in the middle of the three crosshairs (side, lower) can be adjusted between barely visible for low-light conditions or extremely bright for daytime use. Also new from GPO is the 6X 4.5-27x50i SFP long-range hunting riflescope, which has a 50mm objective lens system and variable power range for ample magnification for close and long-range shots. It comes standard with DoubleHD objective lens technology, fully-multi coated lenses, iCONTROL illumination, PASSIONtrac Zero-Stop-Lock turrets and more. Finally, the GPOTAC FFP scope line offers a new reticle designed for competition and enhanced turret to show multiple rotations.

They have a 30 mm tube, multi-coated glass, anti-cant bubble level, locking push-pull turrets, etched reticles with dual color illumination, and more. $566.99 and $642.99 | konusscopes.com

Sig Optics' new KILO3K rangefinder has a trove of features packed in its small but powerful case. Start with the speedy Lightwave DSP, a "Digital Signal Processing" engine that powers through multiple modes including Line-Of-Sight, Angle Modified Range, Archery Mode, Applied Ballistics Ultralight and Applied Ballistics External. In BDX-U mode, the KILO3K utilizes the shooters ballistic profile and measures environmental parameters in real-time to instantly calculate precise windage and elevation solutions in MOA or MILS. This information is displayed in the rangefinder and is also communicated via Bluetooth to any paired BDX sight to provide the exact illuminated holdover aiming point. The unit also includes onboard temperature, pressure and humidity sensors for accurate real-time ballistic calculations. It has five target modes — First, Best, Last, Fog and Extended Range — and a 6x22mm monocular design with SpectraCoat anti-reflection coating for light transmission and clarity. There's more, too, for hunting, competition or other needs. $359.99 | sigsauer.com
