Re: Leupold VX6 4-24x52

I have made it a point to stay with scopes that the eye relief doesn't change. Was a factor in my missing the chance to shoot at a bull elk some years ago. For me, it needs to remain constant. Conquests, Huskemaw and some others remain the same. Guess I'll have to pass on the VX 6. Thanks for the info. Bruce

    Your welcome Bruce.

    Not sure if the lower (VX-6 2-12) or higher (VX-6 4-24) Leupold variable zoom rifle scopes have the same characteristics as my 3-18 eye relief...might be worth checking with them!

    There's plenty of rings available, scope is excellent for money. Lighter I believe? I'll have to check that though.

    I have a 3-18 and just barely sold my 4-24 to buy a nightforce. They are awesome glass. The tmoa in the 4-24 is my favorite retical of any I have looked at as far as line thickness and being 1 moa hash marks. Mine tracked reasonably. I have shot elk at 800 and 900 yards and a few rock chucks at 1015 yards. For the money they are great. My brothers had nightforce scopes though and I always felt theirs tracked just a little bit better so I finally switched out. I have the 3-18 on my 221 fireball and love it on there
