Leupold is including a small piece of pink paper in the box of their 2.5x28 Scout scopes that reads:

Use care in mounting this riflescope.  It is necessary to place the back edge of the rearmost ring at least 3/4" forward of the ocular bell/tube juncture to avoid reticle damage.

The problem must somehow be related to their extended eye relief scopes.

somehow the tension of the mount is crushing the interior glass. the 2x leo of mine looked like the inside of a kaldioscope sometime around 1500 rds in a RR 454. with serious loads.

Wow, bet before they started issuing that warning a lot of people put that area right under the rear ring. That will keep their repair department busy no doubt. Wonder if signiture zee rings saved any ?
