    I have a CZ in 204 Ruger I use for varnmit hunting.
    It has a Leupold Vari-XIII 6.5x20 scope on it now.
    I need to know if sending this scope back to Leup. for a 204 calibrated recticle and the turrents is worth the cost?
    Or am I better off just getting a newer scope with turrents and the varnmit rect.?
    My wife gave me this scope in the 1980s for Christmas so it an older scope with the fine X-hairs.

    1. The varmint raticals are only good for 1 bullet at 1 velocity, I would recomand that you not get them. 2. You can get target tourets that will screw on the scope you have. I picked up a set at Cabelas a year ro so ago. 3. Work out a good drop chart. There are several places on line you can run 1, then check it to as far out as you will shoot before you take it to the field. You will need a good range finder and you get what you pay for with them.
