VX6

Sorry if this has been hashed out before I couldn't find it.

What is every ones opinion on the VX6 series from leupold?
Has had any experience yet.

Do you think it is worth the price?

Thanks

Re: VX6

I think the VX6 is a game changer on several levels. I have 5 now with another on the way. I love the tmoa reticle in the 4-24x52. Just wait till you see the 7-42x56.... If you have any doubts, compare it to a Swaro Z5 at dark. The tracking is spot on in box tests at 300 yards with 3 different models I have tested. I hunt hard with my rifles and have 0 problems or complaints so far. I enjoy the lighter weight as compared to my Nightforce equipped rifles, especially after a long day in the mountains.

Re: VX6

when $ allow I would like one for my 6.5-284 I will have about as much into it as the gun.

I have always been a fan of leupolds I just wonder if I should spend money elsewhere.

I just took a look at this scope on their site. Looks pretty nice. I'm wondering if you will be able to install exposed turrets? I'd like to see what's under those caps!

Re: VX6

This is a CDS 3-18x44.Iv fitted a MOA dial. I think it offers value in this price bracket. A few dislikes , the long cone on the objective limits mounting postions if your not using a rail, the power ring is very stiff and dialing induces a little cant(ie it dosen't dial in line with the horizontal post)
