I have the same scope with the "accurange" reticle.
Put it on a 3006 and have no complaints. It tracks good, light transmission is good, and as far as clearity you hit the nail on the head. They do need a rainguard or something though.
For the $$$ these are great budget scopes, and with leupold warrenty to boot, hey!
I havent heard any complaints, and I dont have no complaints of my own, except the whole rainguard thing, but that is minor and easily fixed.
