   In the next week or two my Winchester Model 70 will be back from Pac-Nor with a brand new .300 WSM barrel. Was researching some glass for it when I noticed that none of the Leicas advertised here, have the #1 reticle. Was it discontinued? Also, does anyone know how bold their version of the #4 reticle is? I definitely don't want a fine reticle. I looked hard at a Leupold VX-6 2-12X42 with the illuminated #4. I like the glass and already have a VX-R 4-12X50 with the same illumination. (I think.) What I don't like on the VX-R is that the eye relief changes, a lot in fact, as you increase or decrease the magnification. This makes a constant "cheek weld" impossible, for me at least. Looking at one in the store, unmounted, it appears that the VX-6 does the same thing.

Just picked up a #4 reticle Leica 2.5-10.  The post is thick enough to see, but the space between the heavy sections is large enough that it doesn't get in the way.  I contemplated the #1 reticle for a bit, but felt I should go with the #4.  The crosshair is not too fine, but I can't compare them to the VX-6 as I've not seen one to take a look at.

The #1 is not discontinued, you may have to find another vendor that carries them.  PM me if you'd like to know which one does advertise them.
