Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

Matching reticule and turret seems basic to me and is one of the simple reasons I have no Leupold in the safe. When I was young owning a Leupold was about as cool as could be and meant something about how serious you take your hunting but now days they have nothing that I find interesting.

Re: Petition to Leupold for MOA reticle

I would gladly sell my 5 Leupold 4.5x14x40 VXIIIs and replace them all with Nikon, Zeiss Conquests, NF, USO, or Huskemaw.

My old Nikon 4x12x40 was a much better scope than these. Brighter, more clear, less money, and tracked just fine.

Well, there is one way to get a 4.5-14x50, 30mm tube, side focus & parallax Leupold with a MOA reticle.

Now what was that company???

Yes this is true. Greybull Leupold = $1150, Optics Planet (fact Leupold) = $759 + $150 trip to the custom shop for the proposed reticle= cheaper still. Also having the ability to get it in another power offering, better still. The point is drive a demand for a factory offering. Nice plug though.

**EDIT** Being able to change loads, elevation, and temperature with out having to reorder turrets, and being limited to 1/3 MOA adjustment= Priceless.
