Re: Leupold's B&C and Varmint recticles

Does the Exbal program work for mil dot recticles as well?

Re: Leupold's B&C and Varmint recticles

Figure about $600-$650 for a vx-III 4.5-14x40 LR with the VH reticle, add another $120 for the M1 knobs install and your still right at half of what the NF would cost.

And for what its worth I have two B&C's and two VH's...I would definately give the nod to the Varmint Hunter reticle.

Re: Leupold's B&C and Varmint recticles

I had not planned on going through the custom shop...if I changed the turrets out it would be down the road aways. I needed to put a scope on a rifle now and upgrade one in the future and thought the VH recticle looked pretty handy. The NF are exceptional scopes, but way to heavy for a hunting rig (I hike alot).

Now I've got a new dilema...I was just about to pull the trigger on a VX-III 4.5-14X40mm AO with VH recticle and a friend of a friend is cash strapped and selling a brand new Mark 4 LR/T 4.5-14X40mm with mil dot for $575....but I guess that's a matter for another post.

Re: Leupold's B&C and Varmint recticles

Fireroad, that sounds like a good deal for a Mark-4. Don't shy away from the VX-3 LR with the BC reticle if you decide to go that route. I use one on a pack rifle chambered in 300 WM and it's dead nuts to 500 yds. Anything further than that and I use the turrets, they are accurate as well. I like this model scope for this setup as I wanted a decent scope with reasonable weight savings. The reticle is not too thick either. All in all I have been very happy with this one!
