Update-- the local rep and the New Jersey customer care contacted me last week with a return label. I returned the scope and yesterday they contacted me to agree with my assessment- the scope did not track properly. They offered me full refund and replacement or discounted upgrade. I chose the discounted upgrade and purchased a Magnus version with magnum ballistics built into the reticle. The discount was significant. I would consider this excellent customer service. The new scope shipped today. If this small inconvenient hurricane cooperates, I hope to have the scope on the rifle this weekend or first of next week with an update!

Humm?

Seeing that I don't know how to fix a scope my opinion and guess is that after calling it names and it still doesn't work that the damned thing is fubar and send it back!

Correct sir. It’s gone and replaced. Waiting on Florence to pass to get some range time. And yes a leupold rides atop the 375 h and h But honestly, there is no comparison to the light gathering between the leica and the leupold. They do serve different purposes on different rifles. Thanks

Slam,

I have never owned a Leica scope, and truthfully I'm not so sure I've ever even looked through one. I have used many Leopold, Swarovski, Nikon, Schmidt Bender, to name a few and now Night Force and I very been very lucky.

Good luck and one shot drops to you!

Not a scope but have a pain of Lecia binos and they are very good. My glass before were Zeiss but they are close to 35 years old and have been used hard. So may not be fair comparison.
Lecia is high quality.

Again waiting on Florence to go fully away before sighting in... but the leica is incredibly bright compared to my mid level Zeiss conquest and blows away optically my other leupold and Nikon scopes. I paid nearly double for this compared to the zeiss conquest. It’s veey nice!! Waiting to see if it will sight in nice!!

The Leica is fantastic. The magnus was easy to sight in and it’s dialed in at 1.25 high at one hundred yards! Accurate movements for each click. To the deer woods this afternoon! Great customer service from Leica and great product replacement!!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
