    So, what about Leupold Mark 5 ?

    I agree, I think that both the turrets and the light gathering ability are my favorite features of the Mark 5.

    Better turrets than the a TT? Thats not really a fair comparison

    So, what about Leupold Mark 5 ?

    Sorry you had a bad experience! My experience was good when I called customer service. I had adjusted my elevation turret to achieve more elevation and when I set the zero for it and returned back to zero the turret had some wiggle back and forth that I didnt like. Customer service was able to...

    So, what about Leupold Mark 5 ?

    I'm loving my Mark 5 so far. Most common gripes seem to be reticle selection and illumination price. Mine is really neither. I would have to say that the eye box is rather tight and I find it to be not as easy to get behind as my Athlon Cronus BTR was. That said, I prefer it to the Cronus BTR in...

    Vortex Razor HD Gen ii. Best in its price range?

    Superior is a stretch. They are decent but imo they dont really compare to the Raxor Gen 2 or Leupold Mark 5

    New Athlon Cronus BTR - very weak/mushy turret detent

    I sold my Cronus BTR to get a Leupold Mark 5 and have not looked back. The Cronus has good glass and illumantion and will get done what you need it to. I didnt care for the turrets either. If you ever get into PRS you may want to go another route.

    Optics Choices for my Bergara Ridgeback - Opinions / Suggestions

    Might want to consider the Nikon Black fx too. I hear good things about it all of the time. The Athlon Ares BTR and Sig Tango 4 are also decent options

    NF ATACR 4-16 vs Leupold MK5 3.6-18

    Thank you Will and nice write up btw. I appreciate your thoroughness. Unfortunately, I've never had the pleasure of comparing both side by side outdoors but I'm quite confident that you summed things up as to what most shooters prospectives would be.

    NF ATACR 4-16 vs Leupold MK5 3.6-18

    Close but no cigar? Imo there is not a $1,000 difference between the two.

    Mark 5HD vs. Nightforce ATACR 7-35

    Not the typical tall target test but hey, whatever's clever. It doesnt take any convincing NF is a solid scope from front to back.

    Mark 5HD vs. Nightforce ATACR 7-35

    I believe the MK5 and the Vx6 have the same glass not the Vx5. I do know for certain that the MK5 and the MK 8 have the same glass. The Leupold rep told me that.

    Mark 5HD vs. Nightforce ATACR 7-35

    Sounds good let us know what you go with but keep one thing in mind. You wont truely know until you start getting behind your rifle and start shooting with it. That said, its a very good plan!

    Leopold mk5 5-25 or Vortex gen 2

    The Mark 5 has my vote and is close the the NF ATACR as far as glass is concerned. Turrets the Razor is more stiff than the Mark 5 but both have very audible and tactile turrets. Weight of course the Razor is quite a bit heavier.
