Have you guys considered making and selling as an option an MOA reticle like the NF NPR1? ...another reason I went with NF...but I did not appreciate the weight of the NF. I woulda been very happy, I think, with an M4 with true MOA (by this I mean and NPR1) reticle. I know your reticle is MOA, but there is a 3 MOA gap from the center of the cross hairs to where your rangefinding MOA lines start, is there not? If you stuck (easier said than done, I realize) a couple of 1 MOA hashes in there, I bet you may find a wider market.
We do sell pixie dust separately. Its delivered and sprinkled at night by invisible wood sprites. Just send the check and trust that the next morning all will be well.

No plans on a Mark 4 or any reticle changes. Our set-up with Leupold is unique and aside from what we want, there are qty, engineering, & pricing issues that also dictate what is possible and viable.

Derek: Its a common question we get about the reticle being busy. Its much cleaner, smaller, and finer in real life than the videos depict and folks that had that concern are pleased with it when they look through the real thing. Working on a way to show it accurately in video graphics and still keep it big enough so folks can see how the marks work.

This thread isn't about us and its getting a bit hijacked (my bad). If anyone has a question for us shoot me PM or an email through our web site..

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

I followed up on this post tonight, and was a bit surprised with my response to Mr. Wards post.

It must have been my time of the month, cause tonight I was a bit ashamed of my frankness and temporary loss of professionalism.

Therefore, I would like to publiclly apologise to Mr. Ward for my "quick to jump" response, as he offered a viable solution to the problem that I identified in this thread.

We still want our factory reticle though.

I can agree with everything but the last part as Nikons are definitely inferior to Leupolds. How many of you have had Leupolds fail? Now ask the same about Nikons & the number will skyrocket.

I definitely want to see Leupold offer a reticle similar to the Horus H30 reticles. I would get several scopes retrofitted & buy several more.

They are coming from a discussion about a year ago I had with Ray Brock, Tactical line manager. The two companies were forming some kind of partnership back then, from what I could tell.

Personally, I'm not fond of them. Even their own video is not speaking to first round hits: http://www.horusvision.com/img/clocktowersniper_3.swf Not that they don't have a use.

I've gone through this simulator several times: http://www.horusvision.com/img/hrsgame.swf trying to understand how this system would work for longrange hunting. It may work, it just seems pretty limiting to changing environmental conditions and you seem to need to know the exact size of your target. Appears to be more geared toward police or combat sniper situations.

Just didn't do it for me, but what do I know...
