Re: WTS Leupold Mark 4 M1 16X40mm
Not sure about the box but I do know that the fixed versions (10x40 & 16x40) indeed have mark 4 etched in the bottom. As well, these don't have the gold medallion either. Those are on the variable mark 4s
If there is any doubt, call their tech support, give them a serial number and they will tell you if it is genuine or not. I've done that a couple times. Fortunately, mine are all genuine!
BTW, what is 3/4 mil? I know what 3/4 OF a mil is but I'm not familiar with a 3/4 mil reticle
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
