Leupold Mark 4 LR scopes Eye Relief at Higher Magnification

How is the eye relief at the higher magnifications with these scopes. Say the 4-14 or the 6-20?

Obviously it's less than on low magnification, but still plenty. If it were me, I wouldn't even look @ the 6.5-20. The 8.5-25 has greater eye relief.

I have the 4.5-14 and the eye relief on 14x is still plenty enough that I dont need a break on a sporter weight 300 RUM shooting prone!

I recently bought the same scope and mounted in on my 280AI.
No worries with eye releif on 14x. I am going to get a second one for my 338 RUM.

How is the clarity of the glass in these scopes. I am considering one for a .300 Win. Mag.

Thanks

I'm sure the NF and S&B crowd will tell you different, but I think the Leupold is more than adequate. I'm now replacing my VX IIIs w/NF scopes but I'm keeping my Mark 4. I'll be able to give you a more objective comparison in a few weeks!!

Bill,
I look forward to that. I have a Mark 4 in both the 6.5-20 and the 8.5-25.
