A rangefinder scope is the modern addition in the history of scopes into a rifle. A rangefinder reticle can find the accurate distance or in other words the range of an object. Scopes are being used in a rifle for getting accurate view of the target object from a long distance. But the magnified view is not enough for shooting or hitting the target. You need to know the actual distance of the object from your position to hit the target accurately. Also, you need to know where you are aiming at. That’s why it is important to have a rangefinder reticle feature in your rifle scope.
The basic buildup of a scope is just a simple Galilean telescope. It has a concave objective lens and a convex eyepiece. The objective lens gathers all of the light and passes through the scope. After the magnification into the scope we can see the magnified view of the object through the eyepiece. But if your scope has a rangefinder feature then you can not only zoom your object but also you can measure how much far away the object is.
There are some measuring aids marked into the reticle. It can be bars or hatches or can be both. These bars or hatches are the units of a rangefinder scope. You have to look at the object through your rangefinder scope and then you have to count how many bars or hatches the object is covering. After that according to the unit measure you will be able to know how much far away is your target object.
A range finder scope is just a scope which can measure the distance from the object. That means it is just and measuring scope.
On the other hand, a sniper scope can be of various types including the rangefinder scope. It also can be spotting range scope, evening vision scope, tactical shooting scope etc.
Conclusion: Among all other vital scopes, rangefinder scope is the most broadly used scope. You know when you are just looking at a target you should also know its accurate distance from you for shooting. Because some rifles have a limit of distance for shooting. If it crosses the limit then it is quite impossible to hit the target. Now as you know the proper procedure of using a rangefinder scope I think you will find it difficult no more.
