Do these scopes seem to follow the adjustments? My old Vari-x II scopes did a great job of holding zero for me, but I had to play with them a bunch to get them sighted in. When I get one at 2 1/2" high at 100, I never touch them again unless a new load came along or a major bump from a fall happened. The 4200's I've played with are much better in this respect, but I'd kind of like to get one of the new Leupolds if they will track!Bucky

This is my third season with a VXIII 4.5x14x50 that I purchased a after market target turret for. I had to custom fit the turret because at the time none were made for it. I did so for the reason you ask (will it track) as well as wanting to dial in to specific range. It has never failed to be dead on every time. If I didn't connect, it was because I rushed or pulled the shot. I can't speak for what you may buy today but this one was worth the $. Good luck and good shootin!

They sure do. As far as i know, all leupold scopes except for the "lemons" as every one has one now and then, track well. I would trust even a very old vx-1 or rifleman over any of the entry level and even some lower mid priced scopes when it comes to tracking. Durability, dependability, marketability, and customer service is what makes the leupold line an expensive scope for the money. Their glass as well as pricing have always been scrutinized though but as you may already know, they are said to have upgraded that with their new line by offering competitive top quality glass without much increase in price.

The VX-3's are supposed to be improved in this regard, having double erector springs (much like the MK-4's) vs. the single of the VX-III.  Probably a worthy upgrade.

Yeah.  It'll be interesting to see how much praise that gets.  Burris has had double springs for years and no one seemed to give a &^%.  For what it's worth I've never had any tracking issues with my VX III's. 
 
I'm a range officer at my local club for the 3 weeks leading up to deer season we have open to the public sight in days.  I sit from 9am to 3pm and mark shots on a board while spotting on the 100yds line.  Then suggest or make the necessary adjustments to the hunters scope.  I usually sight in 25 to 40 people per day.  It's a nice cross-section of a lot of different scopes and how they behave when adjusted.  Most Leupold's track well and even the lower end models from what I've seen.  I've literally sighted in hundreds of scopes out there.  Some junk, some mounted backwards, some really nice high end stuff too.  If you ever want to test your maturity, try to look someone straight in the face who puts his rifle down on your bench with the scope mounted backwards.
