The Leupold M4 line of scopes has become quite broad. To get the wide moa range (140), you have to go with one of the fixed power (16x usually). The variables are nice, but something about variable objective limits the end to end moa adjustment. The M4 variables tend to have 70 to 90 moa at the top end.

The other way around the scope adjustment issue is just to push a bigger bullet faster. For instance the 338 caliber 300gr Sierra matchking, with a 3000fps mz velocity only has around 22 moa of drop at 1000yard with a 100 yard zero. 22 moa is within the reach of less expensive scopes than the M4.

Fearful that recoil is only manageable from....AFAR!! Here's what's AWESOME:

"These babies have a maximum range of 40km and a circular error probability (CEP) of 10m. Now that's precision."

Any time ya can shoot at something from 40 "klicks"....and keep it inside a 31' circle......them boys on the other end....ain't got a chance!! Brick Wall,) Brick Wall,)

That's a shade over 1 MOA so I'm not sure I can live with that kind of accuracy! neener! Seriously though, let's just be glad they are on our side! Thumbs up

He won't do comp! But he likes deer hunting! Most young folks are too busy doing finger/thumb exercises aka ipods etc. to want to be dedicated to anything hard!! But it's easy to become MOTIVATED if there's a DI that has told you that unless you perform.....his boot will be UP YOUR ARSE!!
