Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x40 LR

Has anyone got one? I am thinking of getting one and getting M1 custom shop turrets on it. Any problems with repeatability etc?

I have one that I have been very pleased with for several years. I've got the older one with parallax adj. on the ring. It's been packed on horses and abused in general and it still continues to perform like it's supposed to. No turrets though. Having said that, there is better glass out there and scopes with better eye relief and light gathering but I feel it is a good value.

I'm interested to know about the M1 knobs, I'm leaning towards them but are they really much better than standard target turrets?

I have two of those scopes. One is on a 300WSM and the other on a 280 Rem. I have really enjoyed them. I think it would be great with the M1. I think if you get one you will be happy with it.

I have several of these. Wish they gathered a little more light late/early in the day, but they are great little scopes.
