Re: Premier Retical hold over dots/lines
Every Leupold scope I own has Premier reticle dots in them. I went with single dots on 2 of the 5 (6.5-20x40) I own. The other 3 have a total of 6 dots. One at the intersection of the crosshair with the other 5 going down at a spacing of 2 inches at 100 yards.
They do work up load specific dots for your guns. I did not want this on my scopes because they could end up on a different rifle one day. What I wanted was a reference point for hold over on those long shots. I've examined various scopes with mil dots and range finding reticles and all just looked to busy for me. I might on the next scope (6.5x20x40 VX-III LR) order it with the new Varmint reticles. I've not made up mind yet. I've been waiting for someone I know to get one so I can examine the reticle at various ranges.
Premier does great work. Did not know the first thing about changing the reticles out until I called Leupold trying to convert one of my scopes. They put me onto Premier years ago. I called Premier and they took the time to explain everything in terms I understood. Great people! I also found in a lot of instances their pricing beat or match most of the places I had ordered Leupold scopes from before. So if the at least match the best pricing, and they also discount the dots if you purchase a scope from them, its a good deal.
