Luppy claims a good eye-relief, but using the 6.5-20 doesn't prove it. It's difficult to find a "happy medium" when trying to mount this scope. Either your too close at one magnification, or too far away for the other extreme.
Those are not "cheap" scopes either. The lower end starts around $700.00 I think. If you purchase the LR MV with M1 knobs, the problem seems to be less, and they are over $1000.00.

Re: Long range scope

All good suggestions. Just make sure you mount it properly for long range shooting - critical. I have developed a tool to make sure that your rifle is level - perfectly - prior to aligning your reticle to a plum line. Many people (myself included) have to many times aligned my reticle nicely on top of a slightly canted rifle in a vice. This causes headaches very long range. Anyway there are several solutions in the market of course of which many are useful. This one I believe truly gives the shooter the confidence there is not bore/reticle misalignment - but the shooter still has to hold his lined up rig level in the field. At least no built in issues are present however. Hope this is helpful regardless of how you decide to install whichever scope you choose. Happy hunting.
