Re: Gen 2 XR (Extended Range) Reticle

I want centimeter clicks so that when Ex-Bal reads 5.1 mils, I can hold five dots down plus one click. You can do it with MOA clicks, its just less cumbersome with centimeter clicks, or I could just hold-off the 0.1 mil, but I don't spend $1K or so on a scope to hold-off. I would prefer, for my money, that the reticle and the adjustments be in the same measuring systems.

PS I was the one who replied about the Euro Loopies. When I called Premier about this reitcle, I forgot to ask if they could put it in one of those. I'll call him now!

Re: Gen 2 XR (Extended Range) Reticle

I spoke with Dick Thomas and Leupold. The good news is that Premier can put that reticle in any scope (leupold) with 30mm tube and side focus. The bad news is that the highest mag scope Leupold makes with centimeter clicks, 30mm tube and SF, now is 4.5x14. The good news is Premier can boost it. The bad news is the boost on 4.5x14's often sucks (according to Dick). Rats.
