Re: Leupold VX-III vs. VX-3
The VX3 has two springs, instead of one, on the erector for both the windage and elevation knobs. It gives you less Lash, or play when dialing the turrets, for a more precise movement of the crosshair. I believe they upgraded the lens coatings to the old Mark 4 specs also.
On the old VXIII it was wise to dial past the MOA you wanted and then come back to it to take the lash out. The VXIII will dial in IPHY instead of MOA so you have to set your ballistics program accordingly. The animals you're going to hunt will be just as dead using the scope you already own !! ---- RHB
