    Was checking the MOA calcs on the Varmint Hunter reticle, and i think their figures r incorrect on the website for the VH reticle ONLY, right here--
    http://www.leupold.com/products/Info_Ballistic_Aiming_System.htm

    1/2 way down the pg. is the specs on the VH reticle. Their 500 yd. stadia calcs say that 33.08" @ 500 yds. is 7.02 MOA, but my calcs come up with 6.3 MOA. The other 500 yd MOA calcs seem to be off too. Any ideas here???

    Yeah, I remember there being an error on there site somewhere--but it's corrected elsewhere.

    7.02 MOA is the correct value for that line.

    Good-- the other 500 yd. MOA vales r probably correct also. Heck-- i'll just call Leupold on Monday.

    Got a reply from Leupold yesterday, and it turns out the total inches value is incorrect, BUT the MOA value is correct. They're supposed to make the changes shortly.
