Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I just ordered my first Vortex scope. A Viper HS LR with MOA type reticle. I have been all leupold for 25 years and 1 NF until now. We will see how the Viper is, Reason was the MOA style reticle..

It has an exposed turret w/1/2 MOA elevation clicks. We will see how that works out..

    like its been said before, if they came out with a MOA reticule I would be getting mine updated and buying another, but since they ignore their customers I think Im gonna get a Vortex.

    I would love a MOA/MOA Leupold! It would take the stress out of finding a scope that meets my needs and is a well known and time tested brand. Currently it is looking like the Vortex 2.5-10 PST, but I just can't bite the bullet on that one until I can physically see one. Problem is that there aren't two many dealers around. A Leupold I think I could buy without having looked it over.

    Definitely in on this one!!

    With companies like Sightron and Vortex on deck why even bother with Lupys anymore?

    I haven't ever held a Sightron or Vortex in my hands. There are no dealers nearby that stock either brand. Everywhere I look on the net Vortex is getting great reviews, but the brand isn't well known nor does it have a long history like Leupold. I had never heard of Sightron until I started reading up on longer range shooting and tactical-type scopes. History for them is unknown to me.

    Money is tight for me on these things, and I just can't drop $600 to $1000 because a bunch of people I don't know personally said that they are good. I maybe a little paranoid, but I can't afford to spend that kind of money on a scope with out playing with it a little.

    I really hope that this spring when the Dakota Territory gun show comes through Grand Forks and Fargo, ND that a vendor has these brands so I can see them and form a first-hand opinion of them for myself.

    I think that my feelings on them may apply to many others out in the world, but it is possible that they don't too.

    Over the last 40 years I have owned many scopes. I came to a concensus Lepould was the best bang for your buck. Until Sightron came out with their SIII line of scopes. I now have changed my mind and now think Nitghtforce and Sightron have taken Leupolds place as having superior products woth the extra bucks.

    The lack of MOA stadia on any of their scopes is the primary reason I stopped buying Leupold scopes. Ten years ago, my rifles wore nothing but Leuppy's, today only one has a Leuppy, the others wear either a Nightforce or Vortex.
