Re: leupold custom reticle

The other day I asked how big the dots were in the custom reticle scope, I and nobody answered the question so I called Leupold, they are good with their phone serve, I was told that the dots will cover 2/10 of an inch at 100 yards, or 6/10 inch at 300 yards, etc.

Re: leupold custom reticle

Sure like to know how they get dots to cover LESS, with greater distance...
Do you mean from lowest mag to highest, or did you get them numbers backwards?

Re: leupold custom reticle

I have 3 Nx 5.5x22 x50 npr-1 and like very much. I also have 2 lupy 4.5x14 B&C reticle, 1- 4.5x14 Vm hunter ret, and a 6.5 x20 var. reticle i like. You have to understand the basics to use any of these scope. My 6mmx284 the load i use for my area such as elevation works next thing to perfect. The hashs are great for quick shooting. Beyond 500 where the nfx comes in to the game. I guess we cant perfect every situation. I had 2 rifles with me in co. last month and the areas i was watching it would of been hard to range, click, and send. The last morning i took a cow elk at 480 at the break of daylight. The problem i had was being able to see my cheat sheet and dial quick enough. I pulled it off and took my first elk. For that situation i would of prefered one of my B&C reticles aim and shoot. But we dont live in a perfect world so we can have fun with what we have.

Re: leupold custom reticle

I have a VX3 with varmint hunter reticule also, and do not use the windage marks, I prefer to hold off. When I set the scope at 16X it should be on the dots (.22-250) out to 400 yds, but is not.

I am thinking of getting 1/16th" custom dots installed. If you know your bullet and its MV you can send it to various scope repairers, and they will set the dots so that your drop is on the spot out to 500 yds. I think Parsons and Ackerman can do this.

Re: leupold custom reticle

Ackerman and Lee both will only put the dots at the spacing you give them. they want the moa measurement for each dot. they're not going to figure out any moa distances for any dot placement.
