    I had a 6.5-20x50mm LR M1...I sold it. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    In its place I bought a 3.5-15x56mm Nightforce NXS NP-R2 reticle. If you want higher go with the 5.5-22x56.

    Leupold vs nightforce...

    optices - nightforce way better
    toughness - nightforce way better
    adjustment knobs - nightforce way better
    Reticle - nightforce is glass etched and the lighted feature is way better than leupold
    Coolness factor - nightforce looks badass

    Forget the europeans they don't offer the options nightforce does and they cost more.

    I got the 40mm instead of the 50. Scope is OK got it on a 6.5/284. If I had it to do over again I'd look at Priemer Reticles.com and see what they have in tricked out leupolds. Good Luck!

    Two days ago I spent a bit of time comparing, side by side, the Leupold VX III, and the Zeiss Conquest, in 4.5-14. To my eye the Zeiss was brighter and sharper. Being similarly priced, I bought the Zeiss. I also own a few IOR scopes and find them to rate with both the Zeiss, and a Nightforce that I used to own.

    8.5 - 25 x 50 long range tactical is what i'd opt for.

    i like nightforce but they are very heavy!

    i have changed from swarovski's to leupolds and never looked back!
