Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

Great Idea!!!! +1 more for Leupold putting out an MOA reticle!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be honest I love Leupold, but in the last two years while looking for scopes to place on my rifles, hunting, varmint/predator or target rifles, I have looked else where for scopes. After shooting my brothers Edge with the Nightforce NP-R1, I only look for MOA teticles. I have ordered a Vortex PST with an MOA EBR-1 reticle for my Edge. My money use to be reserved for Leupold but since they do not have what I want I must purchase scopes from their competitors.

This is off topic, I would like to see the EBR-1 MOA reticle in more of Vortex’s scopes too.

    I have been pushing for this for several years now.
    I am disappointed they are behind the curve in this area.
    Sometimes it seems like big companies take more time to do things.
    Hopefully when they get one, it will be well thought out and very practical.
    It needs to be offered in both FFP and SFP in my opinion.

    +1 on the FFP and SFP offerings

    I have bought 3 Nightforce scopes just to get the MOA reticle. Would have stayed will Leupold if they had an MOA reticle.

    In the future if Leupold should offer a MOA reticle in their scopes, I would consider it - if they do it right.

    I have a VX-3 that works great if you don't touch the turrets. It never goes back to zero. It is always off by a few clicks and never consistant. This scope now resides on a lever gun I use for whitetails here in the east where I am. Most shots are point blank anyway.

    A few months ago I received a Greybull Precision Hunting Optic ; a VX 3LR i believe, and this scope is much better. I could quibble about some minor issues I have with it but that is for another time (and they are really minor issues)

    My point is here are two scopes that Leupold built. One is almost junk while the other is quite good.

    Leupold would have to build it right for me to buy it.
