Anyone had hands on the new VX-6 leupold?

Has anyone gotten ahold of the new vx-6 7-42x56? I was wondering if its worth the price tag and how does it compare to NF and other top end scopes.

Re: Anyone had hands on the new VX-6 leupold?

I have a VX-6 in 3X to 18X but not the 7X - 42X. I do however have a cautionary tale. I was at the range today testing it by shooting a "box". I shot 1 shot with no scope adjustments, came up 6 MOA, shot, came right 5 MOA, shot, came down 6 MOA all with the same point of aim at 100 yards. There was no wind so it was a good day to do this test. Rifle will do 0.5 MOA and the box was almost perfect in terms of all the shots lining up with each other to form a box. However, when I measured the spacing between bullet holes I found the VX-6 was dead on in the vertical axis but 12% low in the horizontal. At this price point I expect better. I'll repeat the test tomorrow just to see if it is consistent.

Let us know how it performs. Kinda sucks to send rounds down range w/ that big of a discrepancy.

My 3-18 has been perfect. I use the CDS dial, and the drop on that works out exactly the same as my ballistics calculator, and the same as the scope I had on that gun before, so I suspect the clicks are correct.

I am testing one at the present time. So far my impressions have been very favorable. James Mock

PS- I have also shot the "square" with the 7X-42X model and the results are in the photo below.
