Looks like Leupold still has about 30% on that list.
I wonder how many of the Leupold's on that list have had their adjustments frozen and have ele/windage adjustments purely on the mounts?
Not as many as some guys would like to believe. If you look at the list that was posted in this thread, there are none listed on that list. .
Would they be listed as frozen? I can honestly say, I've never looked at a BR competition score sheet beyond that of our small club matches.
I don't HATE Leupold. But, I don't buy them anymore. I'm still 50+ deep in Leupold scopes, but, I no longer mount them on any rifle I'm going to use for filling big-game tags. Varmint and target rifles mostly now.
I got sick of:
A "roaming-zero" during different range sessions.
Having to sneak up on a zero with dialing past then clicking back to to reduce backlash
Tapping on the turret housing with something, etc.
Sighting in final POI/POA with the rough center of a 3-5 shot group because you can't get a precise POI/POA with the actual adjustments.
Only being able to move 1 turret at a time during sight in as if you move both you're as likely to end up either, half-way there, or 2x further than you wanted, as you are to end up where it was intended to be based upon actual input on the turret.
I used to be the guy jumping up and down swearing this could never happen and that it was the user's fault. The rings were too tight, or not tight enough, or not lapped, or, and, or, and, or, and, etc, etc, etc............
Then I used some scopes that did track accurately, through both the horizontal AND vertical at the same time, retained zero over multiple range trips, would allow the bbl'd action to be removed and installed without shifting POI/POA.
For a long time, I didn't know what I didn't know, until I did.
