I am not to sure where to post this, it is a target scope customised to tactical knobs, used in varmint style shooting!!!
 
I had sent in my Leupold 8,5-25X50 LRT to have M1 knobs fitted. The varmint reticule was also changed to TMR (Tactical Mil Ranging)
 
I had the same scope in their Tactical range for a while.
 
First impression: Work looks good and no complaints...everything fits properly.
 
Second impressions...the dials are smaller then the Tactical and seems less rugged. The clicks are very audible and can clearly be felt. Click..click..click. They feel a bit softer then the tactical.
Total windage 334 clicks at 1/4 = 83 inches so 41 inches from midpoint.
Total elevation 472 clicks at 1/4 = 118 inches so 59 inches from mid point
 
The one issue I have is that the direction to dial is not market in front of the shooter as with the tactical model. Specially the elevation. The windage has a small R.
 
I zeroed it today and had no problems. The reticule reponds to the dials as expected and it held zero throughout, even twisting the dials around etc.
 
I will be on a long range tomorrow and will be able to check the clicks against bullet drop.
 
A few pics...
