    SOLD/EXPIRED For Sale: (two) Leupold LR scopes

    hmm, I cannot figure out how to edit the original post. :-p The correct Leupold item number for the scope with the Varmint Hunter reticle is actually 66610.

    forward cant base or not????

    That scope has 70+ MOA of internal elevation. With a flat base, the 100y zero will likely be a bit above halfway, which will leave the shooter something less than 35 MOA of elevation. That's barely enough to get to 1,000y at sea level shooting .308 loads w/SMK 175 going 2,700 fps at the muzzle...

    read this , it upset me

    "more likely to hit a hoof than a clean kill shot". Typical, not letting facts getting in the way of an emotional outburst. The kill area in a mature elk is (conservatively) about the size of a medium pizza pan, say about 14" diameter. Yielding about 167 square inches. The hooves are about the...

    SOLD/EXPIRED Leupold Scopes - Best Prices

    Johnny, I would be pleased as punch to visit NY and buy a non-resident hunting license to go after whitetail... just as soon as that hillbilly witch no longer represents your state as a Senator. Like I should talk. California has Dianne Sweinstein and Baghdad Barbra Boxer. A pox on them...

    best mid-range scope

    GCIII, if you bought a 'LR' 8.5-25 Leupold (w/30mm tube like all LR models), then that's a good one. If you bought the 1" tube version, then I suggest you consider why that scope is no longer in their product line. Not trying to afflict you with buyer's remorse (potentially), but way too many...

    SOLD/EXPIRED Leupold Scopes - Best Prices

    g/w, easy now. Johnny's got a few hundred posts on this board, so if he's unreliable or untrustworthy, I think the word would be out by now. [ 06-11-2004: Message edited by: Nate Haler ]

    Angled versus Straight

    O/G, if you're gonna use the scope while position shooting (standing, kneeling, sitting, or prone), then you'll be able to use an angled scope much more comfortably than a straight scope while maintaining your position. Otherwise, the straight scope is very practical for field and bench...

    What Scope?

    Unless you need low power for short-range hunting, then you should take a look at the Nikon Monarch 6.5-20x44 and the Burris Black Diamond 6-24.
