+1. I'm running an IOR Valdada 6x42mm Tacticle on my A-Bolt 25-06. Plenty of power out to as far as I can shoot.

What leupold should do is concentrate on makeing their scopes long enough so that you don't have to use extension rings or reversed bases to mount them. Most of ther scopes barely fit on a short action much less a long action.

What? I own several and don't seem to have a problem. Do you want one as long as a Unertl?

Never had a mounting issue on any of my short actions, or my long actions, with Leupy scopes...

Not understanding that gripe at all.............

The gripe is that they are short enough (not all of them) that in order to mount them to fit a variety of sizes of people you must use either extension rings or reverse front or rear bases that extend over the ejection portof the rifleto give the shooter proper eye relief. Remember that not every one is built the same nor do they shoot the gun the same.

Leupold isn't the only offender of this though. IMO there are a lot of scopes that are too short.

Between me at 6'4", my son 5'8", and my wife 5'1" we've no suchproblems with the Leupies we shoot.

Have seen a wide range of other size folks too suffer no issues with 'em.......

Sorry, can't feel your pain...........

No problems with the vx-L. Great scope, superb in low light. I respect most of your opinions, but does anyone actually have any experience with these scopes?

Rifle Loony,

Have you ever heard this phrase before;

"New opinions are always suspect, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common." -John Locke

Or perhaps this one;

"Practice what you preach"...........I was surprised coming from you, try to keep an open mind.

No offense ment or intended!!!!
