    I couldn't wait to get one of the new Leupold Mark 4's (FFP) in 6.5-20.
    It will be my one-in-all scope for my 7mm Dakota center-grip XP-100 specialty handgun.
    I wanted Holland to put his ART reticle in it so I could either use the reticle or turn turrets-Best of both worlds.
    The original reticle would have 24MOA in the reticle from the main X-hair in 1.5MOA increments internally listed every 3MOA on the left side of the reticle. Also, every 1.5 MOA the tic/line would either be .25 MOA or 2MOA long from crosshair to make wind dope adjustments.

    In the improved reticle for Mark 4 FFP's Darrell has now made the reticle go further down for more adjustment (Now 30MOA) and the wind tics/lines are 2MOA or 4MOA instead of the .25MOA or 2MOA.

    Pic quality is not great but I really like this reticle.

    Looking good now!! I like the increased windage system. Much better for varmints.

    Steve,
    You were one of the first people I saw when I realized he had upgraded the reticle.
    I didn't even know it had been changed from the orginal reticle, until I looked through it for the first-Nice Surprise!!!
