    Leupold VX6 7-42 x 56

    Got my hands on one of these today



    Looks very nice, including the reticle.



    It is a reasonable size with 34mm tube, weighs 750 grams, 26.45 oz, here it is flanked by a NF 5.5-22 x 56 NSX & a Kahles 6-24 x 56.



    The turrets have removable caps with 65 moa elevation with 10 moa a turn.



    The eyepiece is reasonably clear considering the mag range.



    A very nice scope by the initial look at it

    I think I NEED one of those!
    Very interested to hear how it performs at the upper end of the mag range and that reticule looks spot on!

    Law of the universe number seven Mikee. The amount of cool stuff available is directly inverse to your inability to afford it.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
