Re: Leupold Scopes
I've been using the M1 3.5x10x40. I wish they made the New M1 4.5x14 with a 40mm Obj instead of just the 50.
Also, my limit (on game) is 500 yards so 10x has always been fine for me and I don't like too much magnification. With my new Lapua & the 300 SMK's I'm sure I'll be puching paper in the off season at twice that distance....so I'm switching to NF NXS 3.5x15x50 with that NP-R2 reticle.
If Leupold suddenly makes an MOA style reticle with 4.5x14 or 6.5x20 with a 40mm Obj I'll go back.
I'll say this though, Leupold quality is excellent. I've never had a problem with any of my scopes. Whatever Leupold scope you get will serve you well. I just wish they innovated a bit more.
Added note, I asked Premier Reticles to make me something similiar to the NP-R2 reticle with MOA drops. They can't.
