What are my options with a 6x magnification range that run under $1000? I noticed that leupold came out with one and I'm wondering who offers scopes that compete. 30mm tube would be preferable since I already have 30mm rings mounted on the gun.

Also are those FOV numbers correct on the leupold 6x? It seems insane that the 2-12 gets over 100ft FOV at a 2x magnification.

In the sub-1k range your options with 6x or greater erector are Leupold VX-6 and Bushnell Elite 6500.  Burris used to make SixX, but that has been discontinued.

My thoughts exactly.  Leupold claims FOV @ 100 yards on a 1-6x scope is 223ft.  Can anyone verify this claim?

So what is the FOV range on the 2-12? Also how's the glass on this scope? I currently have a Burris ED 1.5-6x40 and this Leupold VX6 really has my interest.

Anyone know the FOV on the VX6 2-12. It would be the deciding factor on if I buy one or not.

I have the VX6 2-12 w/plex reticle.  I find it to be the most user friendly scope to "get behind" that I've personally used/inspected.  I dont' have FOV #'s, but I can tell you, to my eyes, the glass is superior to the Conquests, VX3, Elite, Monarch....and on par with the Z3.  It's within a nats hair of the S&B Classic.  This is based on my personal experience with each one.  It tracks perfectly so far, from 100-900 and everything in between with the CDS dial.  It seems to be very well made.

If Leupold cant even manage to publish the information correctly what make anyone think their customer service will know what the answer is.

uhhhh.... because the person updating their website or writing their literature may not be product technical (which is true with most companies) and may have missed or created a typo. A call to the CS or technical department alerting them to your suspicion may help. My past experience with Leupold is that they have a very good CS department to work with.
