This Is What We Really need

What they really need to do is build one with a little more power like a 4X14 with a long range reticle.

I have suggested to Leupold's Pat Mundy, that a 3.5X-10X with their ballistics aiming system would be a great addition to their handgun scope line-up. If this were possible, I believe it would be one of the finest hunting handgun scopes available.

Add an AO and target turrets to what you have mentioned.
One of the reasons I have gone to rifle scopes is that i can find everything I need there.
The only limiting factor is I cannot see a full FOV on the bigger cartridges.
I have also mentioned this to Pat and Tim.
Or just make a rifle scope or a intermediate eye relief scope with 5" of eye relief and I am set to go.

Hey B&L 6500 is claiming 5" of eye relief? I thaught that may take the place of my burris. The burris hasnt even been mounted yet. But for 579.00 for the B&L, with resetable turrets and 90MOA adjustment. I might have to try it. That is if I can get out to the shop and not work on someone elses stuff. The XP has been waiting for 2 or 3 months now.

Jason,
that sounds impressive.
What is the variable x range?
I'm curious to what the eye relief is at its highest power?

Thanks for the heads up

That should be a great alternative optic with that kind of eye relief (and side parallax)--sort of a short intermediate eye relief of sorts. After seeing the DVD's of u guys shooting on the bench at the big antelope hunt, and the Dakota i'm sure u could get a full field of view from them @ 5" with a muzzle break no problem. Could be we have just what we're looking for already?

I think there are several models now Ern. I'll have to look into that. I know i can get 1 for testing. The problem is i don't like their reticles that much. If the 6500 mil-dots are cald for a lower than highest power than that would be OK--but u know me--i'm picky about my tree reticle patterns.

Mark--i would like to see that 2.
