Just got an email from Leupold

They are announcing mid and long range tactical scopes.

Four really good features.

1) They're not afraid to color their scopes different i.e. Tannish/ODish
2) Mil-dot front focal plane models (Appears to be hash marks instead of dots
3) Half mil hash marks
4) Parallax setting appears to be accurate on the knob. They claim no need to look through the scope to adjust it correctly. Now that's a feature!

Re: Just got an email from Leupold

Roy,

I got the same e-mail.
I just sent a scope back to Leupold last week to have M1 dials added. I should have back next week and will put it on my M700LSS 338 RUM. Should be fun!

JD338,

I should have my 338 RUM (factory barrel) back from being fitted this week.

I'll put the Weaver Tactical 4.5X14 on it. I plan on determining the maximum distance that the rifle/cartridge and me are good for and sight in @ -5 mils at that point then shoot at different distances to determine the hold under points. Never done that before but gonna give it a try. Then I'll graduate to come-ups and stuff later.

What's my farthest elk kill distance going to be pushing 250 gr bullet? I'm figuring something on the order of 900yds if I can get her shootin'

This setup will leave me one scope short. I'll need one to go on the 270AM. What's the price tag on those new Leuies?

Roy,

Don't do like buffalobob did and order your scope off of some website. Give Lerch or I a call and we'll fix you up!!
