    Has anyone used the Tacticle Leopold MKll scope. Was interested in the durability, repeatability and clarity. It would be nice to save a little cash to spend on something else.

    i havent tried one and never will. i like to shoot at long range. the problem with the mark II is that they didnt install a paralaxel adjustment. most scopes are set to be in adjustment at 150 yards. so when you go out to 400 and beyond the lenses will be out of focus. i would spend the money on the most important part if your long range rig the scope. if you dont get a good one it wont matter how good the gun is you wont be ale to consistantly shoot good groups at long ragne.

    Looks to me like the MkIIs above 9x have AOs for parallax.

    The 4-12 and 6-18 have the AO on the front of the scope just like a VariXIII instead of the side focas knob. I would like to save a few bucks to spend on other things for the rifle but if it is worth the extra $$ I will get the Mark4.
