  I am wanting to know if Leupold has gone to the trouble of calibrating their Boone+Crockett  subtended reticle graduations for specific range/bullet weights given the ballistic coefficient and Muzzle Velocity.  I was all set to buy the Ballistic plex/BMD from Burris, when all of this came out.  However it seems that Leupold has gone a more general route and only given the differences, or so I think between small and large bullets.  What does this mean?

          I just want some clarification about it.  Anyone know?

The Leupold Ballistic Aiming System provides you with two different power selector positions, indicated by large and small triangles located on the power selector. These are provided to allow you to select the hold points best suited to the cartridge you are using. In some cases, the smaller triangle setting can be used to accommodate your slower, heavier bullet load, while the larger triangle can be used to accommodate a faster, lighter bullet load in the same rifle. The reticle assumes bullets of similar spitzer shape will be used throughout. As an example, a 30-06 with a 180 gr spitzer bullet and 2700fps muzzle velocity would require the use of the smaller triangle mark. A 30-06 with a 150 gr spitzer bullet at 3000 fps muzzle velocity would use the larger triangle mark. Designated three sets of cartridges to be used in conjunction with the large and small triangles, and sight in distances of either 200 or 300 yards, described as Group A, Group B, and Group C. Group A cartridges will use the large triangle and a 200 yard zero, Group B will use the large triangle and a 300 yard zero, and Group C will use the small triangle and a 200 yard zero.

Here is a Flash animated instruction / tutorial on how the two new bullet drop reticles (Boone & Crockett and Varmint Hunters) work.
