Help Me Decide on this Scope Dilema.

I've a VX-III 4.5-14x50LR with a B&C Retical on a Custom 700 with 26" Lilja 1/11" in .300 Win Mag.

I've used it 2 years now in Montana and done well. I've shot long range as a hobby now for 8 years and I want to convert this scope.

Since Leupold has limited reticals I'm trying to decide between a Target knob like "Grey Bull" or a Mark 4 M1.

Plus I want to change the retical to something hashed for wind but it seems my only option is a TMR in Mil increments, even thought B&C works well. I wish they would release their HORUS retical line they are selling in New product.

Just seeing if anyone has input for some help.

Thanks.

Not sure if they do Leupold or what kind of custom reticle they have but you might want to contact Ironsight Inc..

Good luck!

I had the same dilemma and landed on the grey bull precision optic made by Leupold. For hunting applications I think it's hard to beat.

That's what I'm trying to copy with what I have. I can't get his reticle at Leupold and they don't let you pay for it any more.

I'm still trying to decide between the Target knob or the M1.

But most of all, the only option is the TMR but I'd have to convert my windage to MILs for hold off.

Odd situation for sure.

Re: Help Me Decide on this Scope Dilema.

I have had several M1 turrets and they are awesome. Not a fan of hold over reticles but thats just a personal preference. It's no trouble to send your scope in and have a M1 installed in a bdc dial. Leupold has a fairly good turn around. Another option is to sell your B&C scope and order a VXIII 4.5-14x50 from leupold with an M1 turret. I also believe you can have them put 6-7 moa of wind hold in the reticle if you order straight from leupolds custom shop. I'd also look at the turrets by kenton industries....they sure look alot like grey bull precesion turrets.

Good idea.

Just talked to Leupold Custom shop. The Custom Windage dots are in R&D right now but the HORUS reticles will be available by summer. So I'll just go that route if I can.
