BTW, for about 130.00 you can send it back to Leupold and have a TMR or Mil Dot reticle installed which has a long list of advantages including giving you essentially a grid to tell you exactly by how much you miss for quick adjustment back to target.
I'll be sending in my scope (just like yours) as well as two of my Mark 4's in the spring for the TMR reticles for the above reasons.
For about the same money they will also make you a custom drop reticle based on your own ballistic data.
I wish I could get the MP-8 that IOR uses but alas that's not an option except on IOR's (great scopes worthy of consideration if you upgrade).
