    In reading other posts, it sounds like some have a VX6 3-18x44 scope with 34mm tubes.
    Leupolds website states 30mm tubes. Did they make 34mm tubes at one time for them?

    I believe the 4x24 have the 34mm tube and all 3x18's have a 30mm tub, but not 100% sure.

    When you get the VX6, let me know if you can turn the magnification dial.

    I have two 2x12's and they both seem to have more friction than I would like, and one has uneven friction...i.e. at 6x or so it gets harder to turn, then let's up.

    I live 10 minutes from leupold so I may take them in to see if that is normal at all.

    Let me know how it works out. I tried more than one, and at the end of the day, I returned them. Now my rifle has no scope.... while I'm looking for another brand.

    I was hunting in 10 degree weather, and the problem is 1000x worse. So bad, it was like you need a channel lock pliers to turn the dial.
