It might be even funnier to watch Greg and I on a shooting range cause you know we are talking shooting and scopes in the Optic Forum.

Just Sayin. cool

Point is, when you work that hard, subjecting your scope to abuse in the process, you use a real scope.

Now wait a minute John, you have repeatedly ignored Clints question about why leupold isn’t used much by competitors on PRS style ranges. And your answer is always big dead critters. So Greg is out in the hills killing big critters and now it’s all about shooting ranges....I get that you are having a good time yanking chains, but why alienate some of the best shooters and hunters that hang out here? Whatever opportunity you have to share your long range shooting and hunting skills is being wasted with these games, and you can’t even keep your own rules straight.

Chill out, hang out, share your knowledge, and don’t try to bullshit the players. There’s some that don’t trust leupold anymore, and there’s some that do.

Old Burnsie - still playing on the Internet when he should be out hunting.

Funny thing Burns is upon your return to 24HC after Big Stick ran you off, the first thing you shared with us mere mortals was the potential of Gunwerk's demise. Even funnier is when that didn't happen you got real quiet about that subject. It was cute.

I'd keep starting businesses and maybe one day if you make them stick you can be just like Gunwerks selling BS systems to folks who shouldn't be shooting anyways. Wait, isn't that what GreyBull did? Just keep working hard and you may get there one day.

PS - EHG is a cool cat. Sold a gun to him 15 or so years ago and haven't talked to him since.

PPS - you type more smiley faces than any woman I've ever known. It's chickish.

PPS - absolutely no Leupold scopes were used in this application.

Greg, very nice buck. I love those high country bucks. My boy (14) got a nice one in the Bob last week too. It fell about 500 ft though, and broke a fork off. He was about 50 yd s from a big Billy goat when we shot it. John is just an ankle biter. He has some good knkwledge, but is such an arrogant ass, that nobody really listens to him. Some people are just that way. Any way, nice buck. Congrats.

A scope on a muzzleloader ? I guess if you don't know how or don't want to hunt and just want to kill shyt. I've never wanted or needed one on mine.

This is really getting side tracked but a lot don't realize what goes into a buck like that. First, its an easy tag and no other hunter has even been glassed up, a testimony to the difficulty and logistics behind hunting in that area. Many extended night trips from home to the hills for scouting. Several overnight trips beforehand stashing water, as there is none at these elevations. Thousands of feet elevation gain daily. No good rest unless you enjoy sleeping on a 45 on rocks. And when you do kill a buck, you are screwed LOL.

I'll save my money and go to Mexico, thank you very much.

Always love your pics and details on your hunts Greg. Nice work buddy. Congrats again.

He can't help himself.

Regarding Leupos in PRS, some of the Mark 5 shooters have been doing really well with that scope. I don't follow PRS that closely, but over the past year, it seems like the Mark 5 has made a mark, pun intended.

Just a few of the shooters using the Mark 5 in PRS:

-Koenig won the 2019 Production division
-Jon Pynch is currently ranked 7th
-Morgun King is currently ranked 1st place

I quit buying Leupolds awhile ago, but all the feedback that I've gotten from people is that the Mark 5 is proving to be very reliable, durable, and repeatable. I've heard this from recreational shooters, a reputable vendor, and guys in the military. And none are Leupold fan boys, at all.

I heard one of the product development leaders state that they are turning things around at Leupo. He didn't outright state that the Mark 5 was the product of that transformation, but said change is slow there.

I think all of this is good news for those of us who might have stopped buying their scopes, but are looking to support them again.

That’s good to hear! I’m not completely opposed to buying leupold again, but it’ll be very cautiously if I do. I’ll go take a look at that mark 5 , thanks for the info.
