I have been talking with the Leupold marketing manager and we are discussing the VX6 1-6 illuminated that is about to hit the streets soon.

This will be using the similar fiber optic illumination system as is in the VX-R firedots which I like.

Currently there is just a standard duplex or # 4 reticle.

I think it would do very well with the 3 gun and average guy that wanted a "tactical" scope that is 1-6 power in a scope that would sell for 800 or so street price.

If:
It had a BRIGHT center dot that was 1 MOA or 2 max
Some sort of holdover reticle that was not a BDC calibrated one.
Could be as simple as a Mildot or I think ideally a TMR type of reticle.

A custom shop reticle change could be made but they currently do not have a 6x calibrated mildot or TMR.

That may change with the new Mark 6 line but they will be 1500-2K price.

I would be happy to provide some feedback to them from the members of this board.

Thanks for your time

The bright center is a good idea. And even a BDC would work if it was in the first focal plane.

FFP would drive the price up...


The Mark 6 lineup will have some nice options but those come with a price, liike a zero stop, exposed turrets, FFP, etc..

A lot of guys don't want to spend that much money...
and the Mark 6 lineup is all 34mm tubes, that would force most guys to have to upgrade mounts or rings whereas 30mm is pretty much the standard these days

How about a bastard reticle, Like a #4 with a TMR/mil-dot on one side and the bottom  for ranging?

I think the Bushnell 1-6.5 has an interesting reticle (BTR-2) that leupold could take some hints from.

Even just a crosshair with the numbered marks like it has would be nice, and with a bright center dot for illumination in daylight. Maybe there could be a crosshair setting for night shooting.
