Thinking hard about picking one up. More than I've ever spent on a scope so I'm a little nervous about it.
Who's got one?

We just purchased 2 but in 56mm, outstanding low light performance and clarity. I’ll be buying a couple more after the first of the year.

I was the same way and finally bought one a couple of years ago. I would do it all over again. I absolutely love it.
Tough to pull the trigger and spend that type of money but it will last forever and you won't regret it. IMO

I have the HD 6 but it’s a great scope. 3x18x44


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

I have one. With CDS and fire dot. You do want the fire dot. Great scope.

Don't hesitate. I have used mine a lot and it's a great hunting scope. Low light and clarity is fantastic. I've posted some of my hunts with it. I think I've had it four years and use the CDS dial often. Give Leupold good data and it will be spot on if everything else in your set up is as good as the scope. I dropped a good sized boar a couple of days, had time to range him, 288 yards. Dialed it, held dead on and dropped him. I've had other shots using the dial, some much farther. It works. I don't baby this set up at all and it holds zero.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.
