Re: Scope Tracking/Repeatability test proceedure
Not common with any of my VX-3s or Mk 4s. None of them. This is the first place I have ever heard of that. Again, a credit to the forum.
I check mine with a yard stick, and a level on the mounted scope, not so unlike the way shown here. I haven't noticed anything but straight reticles. I haven't ever noticed any canting, except with the old fixed 4 power I had with them. It was off slightly, and it wasn't holding zero. They told me it was off by 2 degrees and they would replace the whole scope rather than repair it because it was so old, so that could be why it wasn't an issue with them. Interesting now that I look back how they made a point of telling me the exact degree of canting. At the time I didn't pay much attention, because, well, they were replacing the scope.
I haven't had any problem with them as far as customer service goes. In fact, I dropped one of my VX-IIs a couple years back and dented it. I sent it in and told them to let me know what it cost before they fix it. They sent it back to me repaired free of charge 3 weeks later.
But I agree, 3 degrees is not cool. Buddy hasn't got back to me. He is a process engineer for them, so not sure what insight he will have. Always good to give him a jab though. It seems very un-Leupold like to fix that.
