Vari-X III glare
I've got a Vari-X III 4.5-14x50 that is about 10 years old. It has the fine duplex reticle, and I like it for daylight target and deer shooting. In the evening, it gets really tough to see deer, there seems to be a bad glare through the scope. I have to cup my hand around the eyepiece to block out light, which helps a little, but it has cost me several nice opportunities on bucks over the years.
Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a fix? I am hoping I can send it back to Leupold and have them address it. Hope there is a solution to it.
Anyone know if that model scope can have a mil dot reticle installed? If not, I may have them make a BDC turret for it.
I'd like to work with this scope if I can, instead of spending a lot on another this year.
