Re: Leupolds Repeatability

TUCKERIZE, It works for Leupolds like nothing else. Of course from then on the warrenty is void so for any work you might need done, you have to send it to Priemier or someone else, cause Leupold will no longer touch the scope! But it is the only for sure cure for the crap flat spring Leupold uses. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Leupolds Repeatability


Jim C. does Paralax adjustments on the leupolds. Do not think he does anything else like the tucker conversion. We talked about his paralax adjustment about a month ago.

Cecil tucker is the only one that I am aware of doing that conversion now. Wish someone else would pick it up also.

Brent, If you get ahold of him let us know what hes doing. Also if you would, if he is pulling the scope apart would you find out if he repurges it (Refills it with Nitrogen)?

Re: Leupolds Repeatability

Ok, I thought I was crazy
I bought a new 6.5-20 LRM1 last year
Mounted the scope, zeroed the rifle - Wow great scope

Following week took a friend to impress with the "great" scope - zero moved about 3/4" to the left

Took apart rifle looked for the "problem" none found
my colorado trip was about a month away,under pressure I ended up buying a nightforce NXS 5.5-22 from a member of this board. WOW!!!!! this scope stays zeroed, tracks
great and has no "lash" problems. Now I have a Leupold that I have no confiendce in. It sits on my 338-300 ultra while I develop the load, now I must save up for another nightforce

To be fair to Leupold I do have a 4.5-14 M1 that I brought a couple years back, tracks great no lash problems, I still use and love that "little scope"

Anybody want to trade a Leopold + Cash + ?? for a nightforce 5.5-22x56??
