 Did leupold change the design of the Varmint hunters crossarrow or is it the same as it has always been?The reason I ask is on SWFA's site it has New VH crossarrow picture which does not have the wind marks or dots on the edges. Also at what power is the VH crossarrow set to work at on a 6.5x20 and 8.5x25 leupold scopes with a 22-250 rifle? Thanks for any help I have been waiting to hear back from SWFA  from a email on this I sent so I could order the scope.

  I was also wondering what mag XX the scope power ring is set on for the VH crossarrow to Cal with a 22-250. I think it is somewhere around 14x-16x but am not totally sure.  Since I was looking at the 6.5x20 and 8.5x25 LR leupold scopes with the VH crossarrow  I really would not need the 8x25LRf if the crossarrow is set to run at say 16X for my 22-250. I called to order yesterday a leupold LR scope and the lady at SWFA didn't know the answer to the cal. point on the power ring so I waited to order when I found out this info.

I'm sorry I don't know. I'd call Leupold CS and get them to tell me.

I think your looking at the LR and the LRV which are the 2 of the 4 types of ballistic compensating reticles they offer. no they didn't change the varmit and it the power selector will have two triangels a small and large which correlate to the trajectory of the particular round you are using. group a are zeroed at 200 yd, b at 200 and c at 300 ex. 22.250 wkould be group c at 4000 fps and 40 gr. vmax. you would selec the large triange alighn it and bingo good to go. also of course since they are sfp you would need to  return to this power setting each time which is the question your are asking and yes the small (I think ) triangle is on 16x in the 6.xx20 and the lg. on 20 , and no you won't need the 8x25 because of this. my 4.x14 works on 11 and 14 as an example. and i use the small tri. because of 69 gr 223. Your gonna love this set up!!!!!

Be careful on the 6.5-20X, the large triangle is about 18X, not at the scope's highest magnification (as it should be). You can always play with the scope's power ring to more accurately "fine tune" your zeros, if u want.

Leupld’s® Ballisctics Aiming System™ is comprised of four specialized reticles – Boone and Crockett™ Big Game, Varmint Hunter’s, LR Duplex, and LRV Duplex reticles – which take into account the variables crucial to accurate, long-range shooting. A special ballistics indicator ring allows users to customize their power settings for their cartridge’s ballistics, then saves that setting for easy reference in a hunting situation. With multiple aiming points for longer ranges and varying wind speeds, and infinite power selector settings to match your rifle’s ballistics, the Ballistics Aiming System can help you master the art of accurate, long-range shooting. It has proved so successful in helping hunters learn how to shoot accurately at long range, we’ve expanded your BAS options with additional reticles offering many of the same benefits as the original reticles. We’ve also made them available in more riflescopes than ever. With practice, the Ballistics Aiming System will teach you how to gauge the distance to your target, where to place your reticle for that distance, and even how to compensate for wind deflection. With the Ballistics Aiming System and some practice, you’ll consistently make shots you wouldn’t have attempted in the past.

Accurate, long-range shooting is probably one of the most difficult hunting skills to master. For many hunters, it remains a combination of hard-won experience, intuition, and a little luck. Together, the reticles of the Ballistics Aiming System give the hunter very useful tools for successful hunts with clean and efficient harvests. By practicing with the Ballistics Aiming System, all hunters can add science to the art of long-range shooting, and master this important skill.

One System, Four Unique Reticles

The Boone and Crockett Big Game reticle and the Varmint Hunter’s reticle use the same principles to help you hone your long-range shooting skills, though each has been tailored to meet the needs of big game or varmint hunters. With practice, using each will become a natural part of your shooting. Unlike other range estimating reticles, the calculations made here are incredibly simple, and take the guesswork out of long-range shooting.

Each reticle provides a series of aiming points. The first aiming point, the intersection of the Duplex® reticle, is to be used at 200 yards with most common cartridges, and 300 yards with several flatter shooting, longer-range loads. The Boone and Crockett Big Game reticle and Varmint Hunter’s reticle also provides you with two different power selector rings, indicated by large and small triangles on the power selector. These 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 with your slower, heavier bullet load, and the large triangle setting with your faster loads in the same rifle. The LR Duplex and LRV Duplex reticles are designed to be used only at the maximum magnification settings.

For example, a 30-06 with a 180gr spitzer bullet and 2700 fps muzzle velocity would use the smaller triangle setting. In the same rifle, a 150gr spitzer bullet with 3000 fps muzzle velocity would use the larger triangle. We have designated three sets of cartridges to be used with the large and small triangle settings, and sight-in distances of either 200 or 300 yards, described as Group A (large triangle, 200 yard zero), Group B (large triangle, 300 yard zero), or Group C (small triangle, 200 yard zero). Verify the aiming points by shooting at the actual distances at which the hold points in the reticle are intended to work. With the LR Duplex and LRV Duplex reticles a shooter can tailor the reticle to his or her load by varying the magnifications, thus altering the subtensions. With all four reticles, remember: pratice, practice, practice!

Don't know about the 8.5-25X, but on the 6.5-20X, the VH reticle is calibrated for 16X (large triangle on the power ring) and 12X (small triangle), depending on the ballistics of the cartridge you're using (shown in a chart in the instruction manual that comes with the scope).  With the .22-250, using 50 grain bullets, you would use 16X.  The VH reticle on my scope has the wind dots exactly as shown above, and I believe it has always been this way.  Like you, I have seen depictions of this reticle without the dots, but all the ones I've seen have had them.  It's a great reticle for varmints!
