I' ve always used Leupold optics and always will and in my personnel opinion and experience i find them to be the best optics made for the money and have personally never had a problem what so ever with a Leupold product. I' m not saying you couldn' t have got a bad scope because every manufacturer can make a bad product at any given time. I will say that i did have an issue like yours arise once when i tried to mount a Leupold 40mm on a H&R single shot but it wasn' t the scope, i was trying to use the wrong height rings. I was using high rings when i needed med rings and when sighting in i ran out of adjustments. Once i got the correct rings the problem was solved. This may not be your problem but that was my experience when it happened to me.

I' ve only dealt with the Leupold customer service once which was about 2 weeks ago when i stumbled upon a guy who needed some cash to pay land taxes and sold me a vari x 3 at a super price. The scope was in excellent new condition with the exception of it missing the two black caps that screw on the windage and elevation adjustments. He had taken target turrets off and couldn' t find the caps that went back on. I called Leupold and told the lady what i needed and low and behold when the package came i had a set of the black caps as well as a set of target turrets at no charge. IMO thats great or maybe even exceptional customer service and i give them a big thumbs up. I hope you get your problem fixed but if you decide you no longer want that Leupold i can always use another one and i' ll gladly take it off your hands if the price is right. Good luck.
