    Really looking to trade. I'm building a long range hunting rifle, 270 WSM on an AB 2 (long) action to run high BC hunting bullets seated way out there. I've got a couple LRPs, the one I am thinking about putting on this rifle is a 6.5-20x50 (SFP, TMOA reticle). These LRPs have high elevation turrets and I prefer lower profile turrets for hunting. To be fair, it is easy to keep up with the revs and settings on an LRP, but the high turret doesn't lock and could be moved accidentally. So I'm interested in trade offers. This LRP is in very good-excellent condition (may have faint marks from rings) with original box and papers and can include some rings if the trade warrants. Finish and lenses are excellent, very clear and tracks very well.

    I'm interested in trading for another Leupold, 30mm tube, 50mm objective or larger, 14X or greater, with CDS turrets, MOA adjustments and reticle, illumination is a plus. Not afraid to add a little money. I like this weight class, don't need any more 3lb scopes. Will be shooting out to 750yds on deer in potentially low light conditions. Not married to Leupold, interested in other brands, but pretty keen on the features outlined above. Let me know what you have, photos of LRP on request.

    I'm looking something with a low-profile ranging turret, but I'll keep this one in mind.

    Veracity has just that. It's low profile with a cover, under the cover is an excellent turret with moa clicks and a zero stop called the MAD system by Burris. Best of all worlds for hunting. E1 reticle with windage dots, excellent turrets for dialling in at long distance and ffp so your reticle is on at any power setting.

    Well that is an interesting design. I'll see if I can play with one somewhere and give it more consideration. Who makes Burris' glass nowadays?

    I don't know who makes the glass. Burris is owned by the same company that owns Steiner. I presume these upper level scopes have name brand lenses.
    I have lots of rifles with lots of scopes. Burris stands out as a great choice to me for most applications. I need higher power target scope for a new build 6 creedmore or I wouldn't trade.
