Re: First long range rifle, what scope?
Im a fan of the Tactical Milling Reticle (TMR), for ex. on the Mark 4 ER/T 6.5-20x. It’s a Front Focal Plane scope, it will adjust the reticle size in direct proportion to your magnification setting, allowing you to keep your adjustments no matter what magnification setting you are on… In a typical 2nd focal plane reticle, the calibrations will change when you change magnifications (in other words, the reticle will remain the same size to your sight picture, thus requiring you to recalculate your holdovers or hold points – thus your adjustments are only good for one magnification).
Only problem is that its got a mil reticle, but has MOA turrets, unless I think you can get M1 turrets on the Leupy's..
