will zeiss or leupold change out a reticle on a scope?   looking at a 2-7 config in either the zeiss terra or the leupy vx-2 but want something bold for a woods gun like a #4 or a thicker plex. i know Burris does but does anyone know if these companies do,?

I know Leupold does at their custom shop and I believe that Zeiss does as well.

Yes, you can get a reticle changed. The afore-mentioned Leupold Custom Shop is my first choice. I have also had one Swaro AV changed, but it was pricey (more than the Leupy).

i really like the leupy vx2.   the duplex is a bit too thin for woods use but that zeiss duplex might be thick enough for the woods. they have a very good duplex reticle.   #4 is kinda what i really want tho

Premier Reticle will probably do a change also.  Personally I think you are on the wrong track.

I'd look at this:

http://swfa.com/Leupold-175-6x32-VX-3-Riflescope-P12640.aspx

Better glass than the VX-2 and prices would be close to the same after the reticle change out. It's not a Number 4 but is very good for low light in the thick brush.

You might look at the VX-R line as well, you can get a Number 4 in some of those models, but with illumination, you may decide you don't need it.

Get a FX3 6x42 with heavy duplex and be done with it.

It appears you have several good options of other scopes as suggested by various posters and certainly SWFA is a great source for them if you decide to go that direction. However, regarding your specific question concerning Zeiss reticles, a fairly recent call to Zeiss on this same subject revealed a cost of $75.00 for a reticle change out plus $15.00 shipping. A turnaround time of six weeks was projected.

$75.00 is what I paid for a Swaro reticle change ... but that was a few years ago. Not sure what it is now.
