Re: Leupold 6.5x20x50 Reviews anyone?

I have owned two for a few years in the target turret model, VX 3. Had to send one back for repair because of tracking issues, confirmed at the factory. Other than that, the scopes have worked well, have good clarity, and hold zero at different powers.

Re: Leupold 6.5x20x50 Reviews anyone?

Over the last 10 years I have pretty much got rid of all my scopes and have gone exclusively to the Leupold VX3LRT's in 6.5X20X50 with the tall turrets Plus a 8.5X25X50 VX3 LRT. plus a Mk4 6.5X20X50 plus 3 of the older VXIII 6.5X20X40's in the 1" tube and have never had an issue with any of them. YET. I also own a Nightforce 5.5X22X50. Thats just for my .308 that weighs about 15 lbs and I ain't carrying that thing very far at all. My Sendero with the MK is a pleasure to carry compared to the .308 Win

Thanks guys for the info. I am going to order one closer to when my rifle is complete. Should be a few months. How many of you are using the Duplex reticle? Which reticle is best for hunting?

You can probably find B&C, OR MIL DOT , tmr, or varmint. My choice would be TMR.BUT YOU MIGHT LIKE SIMPLICITY of B&C
