Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I agree a MOA reticle is long overdue. Leupold needs to make these changes to accomodate the LR Hunter. If they think change is expensive, they ought to think about the loss of loyal custumers to another scope manufacturer.

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I just called Leupold to inquire about the MOA reticle and I was told that enough people have asked for it including people who work there that the engineers are looking into it and he said it sounds like a real possibility that they will be moving foreward with something

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I was going to just get a TMR then turn it down in power and mark it where the hash marks became MOA but I am getting along just fine as is. so ill just leave it as is till Leupold comes out with an actual MOA reticle. you can do a lot with a standard duplex if you know the spacing at different powers

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I have stopped by their booth at SHOT every year for the last 6 and asked when they will give teh MOA shooters a break. They mostly say never and I mostly respond then I'll just continue to buy your competitor's scopes. True to my word, I don't own any Leuold scopes.

A ridiculous (and so easily changed) situation, confirmed by my personal experience as well as mentioned early on in this thread...

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I met with Alan Ranson, Head of Technical Services at Leupold last Monday. I asked him about the moa reticle. He said they are working on it. Should be available next summer or fall. Mil reticle came out first for miltary and law enforcement use.
