Why ProReviewly has the Best long range rifle scopes

If you are looking for the best long range rifle scopes out there, chances are you have heard a lot of different answers. Long range rifles scopes vary immensely in terms of the quality and specifications.

The trick is to look around and make sure you know what you want in a scope, as well as becoming familiar with the different options and what rifle scopes have to offer. It does not hurt to be informed about different specifications for scopes, such as magnification, reticle, objective lens size, field of view, and resolution.

Long range rifle scopes are usually classified as those that are best used at two hundreds or more. Unlike scopes used for close range hunting, long range rifle scopes are going to have a higher magnification, a larger size of objective lens, and a smaller field of view.

Most hunters opt for a long range scope that has variable magnification, meaning that the scope’s degree of magnification can be changed. You will also want to consider prices when you look at the best rifle scopes.

Getting a higher price scope could certainly be worth the investment and pay off in the long run. Here are some of the best long range rifle scopes on the market as featured on ProReviewly.

Leupold VX-3 6.5-20x50mm

The Leupold VX-3 comes from one the top manufactures of rifle scopes. With a variable magnification of 6.5-20x and an objective lens of 50mm, it is sure to come in handy as a scope for longer ranges.

The scope has a Fine Duplex reticle or cross hair. This means that besides the regular cross hair, the reticle has thicker lines that become narrow as they move into the center of the lens.

The field of view is 14.3 feet with a tube diameter of 30 mm. The scope is fairly light at roughly fourteen inches and twenty ounces in weight.

Sightron SIII Long Range 8-32x56mm

The Sightron SIII Long Range is an incredible rifle scope to use for long distances. The scope’s variable magnification is 8 to 32x with an objective lens size of 56 mm.

The objective bell of the scope is pretty long so keep that in mind when mounting it. The scope is adjusted for wind and elevation, and the range of both of those is 70.

The reticle is MOA-2 which looks like a normal cross hairs but dashes on them for more accurate aiming. The tube diameter is 30 mm with a field of view around 12 feet. The scope weighs approximately twenty-five ounces with a length of about sixteen inches.

Nightforce NBR 8-32X 56mm

The Nightforce NBR is a high-quality tube from Nightforce Precision Optics. This particular model has a magnification of 8 to 32 times larger than the naked eye, and the objective lens is 56 mm in size.

The reticle is NP-R2, which is widely different than normal cross hairs. Instead of looking like a large plus sign, this reticle looks more like a T in the center of the lens, and the lines do not extend all the way across the field of view. The scope has an internal adjustment range for wind and elevation of 50.

The scope is 30 mm in diameter, weighs about thirty-six ounces with a length of about seventeen inches. The scope only has a mounting length of about five and a half inches.

Vortex Viper PST 6-24x 50mm

The Vortex Viper PST is a long range rifle scope from another leading manufacturer of high-quality optics. The scope has a magnification range of 6 to 24 times with an objective lens size of 50 mm.

The reticle on this scope is an illuminated EBR-1. The EBR-1 looks like a normal cross hair with smaller dashes for more precise aiming. It also has thicker lines on the side and the bottom of the cross hair.

The scope has a field of view around seventeen to five feet, and an eye relief of 4 mm. The scope has an internal adjustment range of 65 for elevation and wind.

The scope is also 30 mm in diameter, is fifteen and a half inches long, and has a weight of twenty-three ounces.

Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30 x 50mm

The Bushnell Elite 6500 comes from another high-quality manufacturer of sport optics. The company is an industry leader and has been for over sixty years.

The Bushnell Elite has a magnification of 4.5 to 30x, and like many long range rifle scopes, has an objective lens size of 50 mm. The scope has a Mil-Dot reticle, meaning it looks like a typical cross hairs, except that the thicker lines narrow into thinner lines with dots overlaid for accuracy.

The scope has a field of view of 21 by 3 feet and an eye relief of 4 mm. The internal adjustment range of wind and elevation is 50 and has a tube diameter of 30 mm. The scope weighs twenty-one ounces with a length of thirteen and a half inches.

 

Free movies on Crackle, Hoopla, Internet Archive, Tubi TV, Vudu, Yahoo View and YouTube

Streaming becoming ever popular in Jamaica, it was only a matter of time before a few clever entrepreneurs and companies with loads of content realized that they could provide free movie streaming.

After all, the roving eyes of the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) can’t be everywhere. So without further ado, here is a list of six (6) websites that legally allow you to stream movies:

All these websites are ad-supported and only require the visitor to sign up to a free account to join.

Perhaps YouTube is the most surprising; I’ve found and watched quite a bit of full-length movies on that website.

Sharing is Caring so share this list with as many of your movie-watching peeps as you can.

How to recover deleted Data from internal memory of an Android Smartphone or Tablet

Yes, despite what you may have heard, it is possible to recover lost or deleted files from the internal storage of an Android mobile device. This is assuming the phone or tablet is operational and you can set it in to Debugging mode.

The following procedure will work with most devices, specifically:

  1. Samsung
  2. HTC
  3. Alcatel
  4. Huawei

Please note it’ll also work for the following Android OS:

  1. Android 1.6. Donut
  2. Android 2.1. Eclair
  3. Android 2.2. Froyo
  4. Android 2.3. Gingerbread
  5. Android 3.0. Honeycomb
  6. Android 4.0. Ice Cream Sandwich
  7. Android 4.4. KitKat

It will not work on Android 4.1. Jelly Bean as UMS (USB Mass Storage) option is not available.

So let’s begin.

How to Recover Data from an Android device – Connect like an External Harddrive

First, you need to set your smartphone to be seen as an external storage device, you need to go into Developer mode and change the Android settings on the phone or tablet.

For Android 2.1-2.3.7 devices, use the following instructions:

  1. Click on Menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Click on Applications
  4. Click on Development
  5. Click on USB debugging

For Android 4.0-4.1.2 devices, use the following instructions:

  1. Open Setting
  2. Click on ….
  3. Select USB utilities
  4. Select Connect Storage to PC

For Android 4.0-4.1.2 devices, use the following instructions:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on About Phone/Tablet
  3. Click on Build Number at the end of the Scroll list
  4. Click on Build Number 7 times

Android 4.2 smartphone or tablets do not have an easily available option for USB Debugging option. But it isn’t missing, just well hidden. To get to the Developer mode, use the following instructions:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on About Phone/Tablet
  3. Click on “Build Number” at the end of the Scroll list
  4. Click on “Build Number” repeatedly for 7 times

Good to note at the third tap you’ll be told that you only have 4 more taps to go; so keep tapping until it switches over to developer mode.

Recovery time – My favourite Data Recovery pics

Once you are in Developer mode, then do the following to recover data.

  1. Connect your phone/tablet to your PC via a USB cable
  2. Pull down the status bar
  3. Select USB connected
  4. Select the button which reads Connect storage to PC

Reconnect the USB cable and try again until you see this option. Then once it is detected as a Removable memory with an assigned drive letter, you root the device using Khangoroot.

Then you can launch any recovery software program (Deer, 2013, August 3). My preferred data recovery software choices are:

  1. AnyMP4 Android Data Recovery
  2. File Recovery Ultimate 15.0.5
  3. iLike Android Data Recovery Pro
  4. Active@ File Recovery Ultimate 15.0.5
  5. Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android
  6. Aiseesoft Android Data Recovery
  7. EaseUS MobiSaver for Android
  8. Remo Recover for Android
  9. Recuva Pro
  10. Getdata’s Recover My Files

When recovery is complete, use Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media option to eject the device and turn off USB Debugging mode on the Android device. Sharing is caring so share this post with as many of your friends as you can.

Jamaica College wins Prizes at United States First Robotics Competition in February 2017

“It wasn’t really much of a surprise because we put in a lot of work. None of this would be possible without our coaches’ help, sponsors and the whole team working together. It is a really good feeling and we are proud that we have not only represented Jamaica College but Jamaica and the Caribbean”

Dimario Campbell, president and captain of the team commenting on the performance of Jamaica College at the United States First Robotics Competition

Jamaica College has done it yet again. This time they’ve entered the United States First Robotics Competition, held in New York in February 2017 (The Jamaica Gleaner, 2017, March 7) and walked away with a number of sectional prizes, including:

  • The Inspire Award
  • The Motivator Award

I say yet again as this is not the first time (Jamaicans.com, March 2016) that they’re reached this level. the Jamaica College Robotics Club had entered the USFRS back in March 2016 and had competed at the University of Scranton in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Back then, they’d also won the Motivate Award, advancing to the FRC USFIRST Robotics National Championship in St. Louis, Missouri, which was then held on April 27 to 30 2016.

Jamaica college was in face the only Caribbean School to enter the competition, which is surprising given the number of Robotics Programs such as Vybz Kartel Robotics Camp in Portmore (Deer, 2016, September 6) and Supreme Ventures funds Junior Creators Robotics Summer Camp (Deer, 2016, August 5) held back in 2016.

Principal of JC, Wayne Robinson hopes to qualify for the World Championships in April 2017, pointing to the potential rewards, quote: “It’s a competition which gives opportunities for students, usually for high school. We were the only Caribbean school there competing with other areas of the world”.

They did, however, encounter some difficulties related to financing their two (2) Robotics teams, quote: “We won a number of awards for our performances. As a matter of fact, we had to merge the two teams into one, because even though both teams moved on to the second round, we couldn’t afford to carry both teams to the next round because we didn’t have the resources to fix one of the robots”.

Still the victories were well deserved as the JC team put a lot of effort into their showing, including a couple all-nighters, to quote president and captain of the team Dimario Campbell:  “As high-school students, we had to manage both schoolwork and robotics. It was very challenging, but the team made it work. Sometimes we are here from as early as 6:30 in the morning and the first place we head to is the robotics lab to get work done. We leave sometimes at 10/11 o’clock in the night, so it was a lot of sleepless nights”.

Despite the financial resource constraints, JC Robotics Team persisted and has now place Jamaica on the map a country serious about robotics!

Pizza Hut wins 2016 Pepsi Award for Sales Growth as Little Caesars’ comes to Jamaica

“Pizza Hut Jamaica ended 2016 with double-digit sales growth over the previous year, and welcomed the newest addition to the Pizza Hut Jamaica family in January 2017, Pizza Hut Whitter Village”

Managing Director of Restaurants of Jamaica Mark Myers, commenting on the growth of Pizza Hut in Jamaica

Pizza Hut Jamaica which is a part of the Restaurants of Jamaica franchise, recently won the 2016 Pepsi Award for Top Sales Growth (The Jamaica Gleaner, 2017, February 20) at the 2016 YUM Franchise Week held in Miami, Florida.

Restaurants of Jamaica employs more than 2,000 persons in 45 restaurants islandwide and owners of the KFC Jamaica, which also won the Market of the Year at the 2016 YUM Franchise Week for the second year running.

Jamaicans are slowly developing an insatiable hunger for fast food! Pizza is the latest obsession, evident to anyone that works in a Call Center. Already there are three (3) pizza companies in Jamaica:

  1. Pizza Hut
  2. Dominoes
  3. Little Caesars’

Little Caesars’, coming under the banner of Restaurant Associates, the operators of the Burger King and Popeye’s franchises (Graham, 2016, December 28), has launched five (5) restaurants in Jamaica (Anderson, 2017, January 19) with more to come.

This is a really big deal for Restaurants of Jamaica. So what is their secret formula?

Pizza Hut – Deliver Wherever, whenever may include Lionfish

Delivery is their secret weapon; Pizza hut is willing to deliver pizza wherever, whenever as pointed out by Pizza Hut Jamaica’s marketing director, Tina Matalon, quote: “We recognise that delivery is a key factor for pizza consumers, so we make improving the delivery platform a priority for our brand. Innovation and development is something that we are always focusing on at Pizza Hut Jamaica and is a contributor to our continued success”.

mico-wars-pizza-hut-wins-2016-pepsi-award-for-sales-growth-as-little-caesars-comes-to-jamaica-05-03-2017-lhdeer-1

The company is expanding, recently opening yet another location, this time in the Whitter Village, Ironshore (The Jamaica Gleaner, 2017, January 12) serving the Montego Bay, St James area and has quite a lot of staff as Managing director of Restaurants of Jamaica Mark Myers points out, quote: “This restaurant employs 30 team members, bringing the total employed to the brand to more than 400. This reinforces our commitment to job creation as we continue to expand the brand locally”.

Pizza Hut is known for pushing the envelope of innovation, as was the case with their Doritos Crunchy Stuffed Crust Pizza (The Jamaica Gleaner, 2016, July 21) back in July 2016. Hopefully this means that lionfish (Deer, 2016, December 5) pizza is on the menu, as with three (3) pizza fast food providers in Jamaica, a dash of local flavour would make them really stand out.
