I have been working with Premier Reticles and a few other shooters on the design for a new reticle with a MOA scale for use in Leupold scopes. The conversion would be much like a GenII conversion where the scope is made first focal plane (can range at any distance). It would be covered by Premier warranty just as any other reticle conversion they provide. The new reticle would be simplistic in design and nature in that it would allow the shooter to accurately range a target and use hold overs in minute of angle. The scope turrets dial in MOA why not READ the scope in MOA?!?!
An example of the MOA scale for judging yardage:
A steel plate is 5" in diameter. You see that the steel plate takes up 1.5 MOA in the scope.
The formula is: target in inches x 100 / MOA read = distance.
500/1.5 = 333 yards
For example, my .308 needs 1.75 MOA to get to 200 yds. I would place the first hash mark (2MOA mark) at the bottom of the bull at 200 yds and never have to dial anything on my scope.
To be on at 300 yds, I need 4.50 MOA so I simply put the 4 MOA mark (second mark down from center) on top side of the bull and take the shot. You could still dial the dope if you wanted to, but this system would allow for engaging multiple targets without ever having to make an adjustment.
The windage is also marked in 2 MOA increments. You can look at the provided diagram to see how the reticle measures out. Would anyone be interested in getting this reticle in your Leupold scope? The cost would be $300.00 and again this would be making your scope a FFP instead of the SFP. FFP is preferred by most tactical shooters.
The drawing is not in perfect scale so bear with me.
