    Has any body had a problem with Luepold VX-6HD scopes over tracking. When I dial in 30 min the scope gives me 32 1/2 min when I shoot. I sent one scope back and they fixed it ok good. So I bought another one it does the same thing. Leopold says they don't have a problem.

    Which power range and Objective size is your scope?
    I ordered a VX-6HD 4-24 x 54. Hope it tracks OK.

    Yes. Both of my 3-18x50 VX6HD’s over travel by 3%. I had a non HD version that over traveled by about 6%, I sent it back and leupold “fixed” it by replacing the turrets that over traveled by 3%.

    They are great scopes so it’s easy to account for in my ballistic app by setting the correction factor. It’s not ideal with an MOA retical, but I only use the reticle for shorter shots less than 500 yards and at those distances the small offset is insignificant.
