Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I guess, until they do, I'll just turn the power down on the 8-25X TMR.

22.5X will give 2 IPHY per mark.
21.5X will give 2 Moa per mark (instead of the 1/2 mil per mark at 25X)

Way easier to leave the power on another marked setting then have to convert mils to moa's to dial the scope (which has 1/4min clicks). Mil reticles should have mil turrets, I see they now make them (M5)

MOA/IPHY reticle with 1/4minute or 1/4 inch clicks is the way to go
I don't see why it would be so hard to make it. Others are doing it, and they don't have near the scope making experience that Leupold has. Come on Leupold........step up to the plate!

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I shoot the Mark 4's and have a MOA reticle , check out Hollands , mine are in 1.5 moa increments


these also have increments in mils for ranging.
I have these on most of my handcannons and the ones with out have mildot. , I have built drops for each caliber with all of the information to use either the MOA reticle or the mildot and not have to constantly be turning the turrets.

Not a big deal.....and Leupold must be thinking how come these guys can't work around it with all the reticles we already give them....a real no-brainer.....

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

My first long range scope where Leupolds but after a couple of knob problems I gave up and went IOR with MP-8 reticles in them. Sure they are ½mill hashes @ 10x but @ 18x they magicly turn into MOA hashes
If Leuplod would have put MOA reticles in when we where asking for them 15 years ago there would be 10-15 more Leupolds in the safe instead of just a handfull of 12x's!!
Its too late for Leupold to start with an MOA reticle ..................unless they could retrofit the used ones cost effectivly.

+1,

I bought my first NF around 15 years ago for this very reason. Back when a guy had to send his Leupold in to Premier and get a different reticle, and I don't recall moa being one of the options.

This is a Petition FOR Leupold to offer an MOA reticle. If you're not on board, go elsewhere please.
