That's true. They do make some of the best scopes IMO.

And how many are after you in line? Should have bought a Zeiss Conquest for the same money. Glad you are getting it taken care right in the middle of deer season also. popcorn

Like all things sometimes they break. Leupold has a great warranty program so I sure they will take care of you.

I bought before I realized what wads of crap leupolds are! (2003 I think).

hey, no big deal... I'm going to change my scope and go shoot a deer next week at this package hunt place. I'll just aim center of mass like all these other people do when they hunt up here! My guide will find it.

LOL

Just get a bigger caliber rifle while you are getting a new scope and you will be just fine then. rolleyes

it's a VXIII 4.5-14x40.

stx, that's a great idea. I heard from a guy who killz big deerz that if you shoot something like a 338 rem ultra mag, it doesn't matter where you hit the deer, they will drop in their tracks.

he told me that it's right in the middle of hunting season so the wait times are much longer.

good thing I'm a right winged nut job and have plenty of other rifles!

7 people out of hundreds of thousands of scopes? Sounds reasonable to me.

Silly boys, don't ya'll know that nothing short of .700 nitro express is completely useless on white tails?

Using a .700, or even bigger for the those monster spikes, you're guaranteed a 'dead right there' shot, and most times you won't even have to field dress them because they got so scared when they heard that bullet flying that they did it themselves.

Dang nice scope! What is wrong with it? Won't hold zero? Won't adjust?

All I've bought in the last few years have been Zeiss, but I bet if you look at the percentage of warranty claims on Zeiss vs Leupold, there won't be much difference.

How many more are in line behind is the real question I think.

shheeeeeeeeeeeet! it won't hold zero. I had it on my 7mm that will shoot well, and it started shooting ~4" groups. cleaned the barrel...shot OK, then shot like crap. I took the rings and bases off, re assembled everything, check the ring alignment, and the scope worked well for a few shots, then started spraying again. put a zeiss on it, and it's money. I put the leupold on a sako 25-06 and initially it shot great, well under 1" groups. last weekend I checked the zero on it and it was off about 3". made an adjustment with no change to bullet impact, then it started spraying bullets all over the place.

stx, I'm plenty tall to shoot a RUM... just a shade under 5 feet tall.


as for the statistics... there were 7 people in line RIGHT NOW, not people for all historical purchases of leupold products.

I own several leupold scopes, the newest one is about 10 years old. Never had a problem although zeiss makes some nice scopes I fail to see how a zeis 3x9-40 is soooo much better than a leupold 3x9-40. Shot several side by side in low light and at night by the light of the moon. Never did something with one that I couldnt do with the other. It is the next trend of oh if you dont have "X" then you need a better scope.

I have owned at least a couple dozen Leupold scopes over the years, and the only problems I have ever had with any of them have been with a couple of illumination turrets. The customer serviice folks have been a pleasure to deal with, and in my opinion, their no BS warranty is great.

I also own several Zeiss Conquests and Diavaris as well as Swarovski Z6i's and PV-I's, and in my opinion, Leupolds can hold their own optically with the best of them.
