    Friend of mine has a new 6.5x20 LRT we mounted on his F-class savage.

    We leveled the scope and boy that reticle is quite off in relation to the turrent level position. It's very noticable with the naked eye.

    Want to know the bad part?

    He purchased a Simmons 6x20 variable with adjustable target turrents offf E Bay and the scope has been spot on. It's made in China.

    The Leupold was purchased from my supplier so it's not an E bay fake.

    How disappointing to drop a grand on an Leupold and have a new in box Simmons he bought for $5 on e bay kick it's ass for QC.

    Just noticed. Not all the marks in his TMR reticle are even present per instructions from the Leupold instruction booklet.

    Aggravating.
