Re: Leupold Mark 4
I purchased a Kahles K418 4.5x18x50 with target turrets. I have an affinity for the Kahles optics but may actually end up with a NightForce before it's all over with (see thread Kahles - Oops.)
In the end however, I truely believe the Mk 4 would have accomplished everything I needed for less money, less weight, and smaller dimensions.
I'm not necessarily a diehard Leupold fan normally, but in this case, I would have been very satisfied.
From what I've seen from the responses you received, you can't make a bad decision. Just go with your gut on this one. Good luck.
