If anyone's interested in a "benchrest-style" LER high powered scope, there is an option beyond the 3-12X Burris. Got a buddy that's shooting a custom XP-100 6.5-284 for LR shooting and 1000 yd. benchrest. Wally Siebert of Issaquah, WA can modify a 36X BR Leupold to LER, but the magnification is decreased by almost 50% to around 20X. Michael O'Donnell is attempting to make a prototype ballistic dot reticle for it. I've looked thru the scope and can tell you that it is very critical with eye relief, and FOV, but could be used in a pr. dog town with some work/experience. I will try to get Wally's e-mail address tomorrow.

That's a great idea Chris, but i'm not too literate on these computers-- i've got a diigital camera, but don't know how to download pics yet, and frankly don't have any to download on that camera anyways-- sorry. Actually the scope modifications are all internal, and the scope doesn't look ant different than stock. Truth is tho-- i think Wally can also do the modidfcation to the B&L Elite model too-- u'd have to call him to find out. My buddy's got a prototype ballistic reticle in it from TK LEE too-- but so far the 1st installation didn't work out as planned-- the scope goes back in a couple days i guess for another try. BUT he did use it recenntly @ Pella. IA at the 1000 yd. comp. Most of the 1000 yd. pistol guys just use std. high-power riflescopes and just back off of them. 1 guy there was using a .338 Lapua in a pistol, but the rig was so heavy that it didn't kick much i heard.
