German Precision. 8X

The Predator 8 is the most versatile and precise line of hunting optics ever made by Steiner featuring a powerful 8x system. Be prepared for hunting any species, in any terrain across the globe with a Steiner Predator 8. 

An integrated customizable ballistic turret allows shooters to reliably and accurately dial for bullet drop, and three different numbered, movable rings, can be set to custom distances for quick dialing. Audible and tactile turret mechanics provide sure, intuitive operation and a Zero Mode means shooters can quickly get back to zero without coming off the optic. 

A wide field of view and high-contrast lens coatings ensure fast, brilliant, and crisp images with high edge-to-edge sharpness and outstanding detail recognition. Users will not lose accuracy on dark targets or in low light with illuminated reticle options with 11 brightness settings. 

The Predator 8 2-16x42 is the lightest and most compact of the lineup and includes a rear focal plane E3 Ballistic reticle, with cascading subtensions and windage dots to help with tricky holdovers.
