Leupold Optics For Very Long Or Very Short Range


Mar 6, 2008
In my waking dreams, it is of course essential for long range hunting to have a new, just released scope and laser rangefinder to team up with a rifle and cartridge/bullet combo to do the job at ranges close, far and anywhere in between.

My test bed rifle is a Kimber Select Grade 8400 in .338 Winchester Magnum with the new Leupold VX-6 2x12 42mm with Boone and Crockett reticle. The cartridge is a hand loaded Nosler Custom Case and a 185 grain Nosler AccuBond using Reloader 15 powder. Clocking in at 3150 fps, the 185 grain pill is a veritable freight train of energy for any species in North America and most of Africa.
