Re: Leupold Reticle change
You've got to ask yourself a couple of questions.
What are my true needs and requirements when it comes to a reticle?
If it's for paper punching or shooting no more a couple hundred yards, then I wouldn't waste my time and hard earned money on a mil-dot reticle.
If however a mil-dot type reticle fits your needs and requirements then go for it, but I'd spend the extra few dollars for a 2nd gen mil-dot from Premier. I had them install the 2nd gen in my tactical leuy scope and I really like it much better than the standard USMC mil-dot reticle.
All of my new scopes have been from IOR and I have the MP-8 reticle in those scopes which I like better than mil-dot and 2nd gen mil-dot. Same concept, but they use hash marks instead of footballs.
Which ever way you go, purchase a reticle that will meet you actual needs and requirments and forget any fad stuff. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
