Have you looked through an SIII such as the 6-24 next to a Leupold 6.5-20 or 8.5-24?

    Leupold has a way of resting on it's reputation for sales. It is being passed over, by inovators in the market. This will eventually be there down fall, as well as the cheapening up of the vx-1- and 2 lines. NF and Vortex even Nikons outsell Leupolds in my shop. I no longer stock 1 and 2's as the quality has vanished. Nikon can at least put the reticle in the tube within a degree of verticle.

    The sales of general 3x9 hunting scopes is dependent largley on new hunters. 50% of WI deer hunters will only ever own one deer rifle. The guys who are into LRH, regular target shooting, rock busting, PD busting, ect. will buy and use more product than 10 individual traditional deer hunters in one year.

    When companys offer the New and inovative things shooters want, that is where they will go. Sorry Leupold.

    I am using them, not much time on them yet, but it makes sense to have reticule match turret. I like mils becuase it takes less turns to get yardage. I also use the tmr for holds to 825, it is very similar to the ART reticule

    An M-4 with a NightForce NP-R1 reticle and I'd buy two! Come on Leupold WAKE UP!
