I would advise obtaining a target similar to this one....Final Update-
Received the brand new Leupold VX-6HD 4-25x52 w the Firedot Reticle. Also received new rings, scope covers and a Firedot Reticle Leupold Hat-
I had scope mounted and columnated-picked it up Friday. I took it to the range yesterday-
First 3 shots in the circle before any adjustment-
Then you can see how it moves- #2 was 24 clicks up, #3 was 12 clicks down, #4 was 8 clicks up
#5 was 2 clicks Right and #6 was 2 more clicks right.
#7 was final shot - I was happy after #5 and #6 from a confidence perspective (all at 100yds- now on to 200 and beyond)
Thanks again to all that offered advice-
(Extraneous shots were from a buddy using same target after the fact.
You have to select the "get code" button and apply it. Midway can be pricy for powder sometimes... Just gotta shop around.
Couldn't the repair folks take care of that?Hopefully they will have the custom shop up and going. I called Leupold last week about a reticle swap and they told me it’s not certain when the custom shop will be back going.
I did- I used the seekins rings first- no issues whatsoever!!!Hate to see you burn up more ammo but would like to see you mount the new scope in your original Seekins rings to prove a point.
Glad to see something coming out of this.
