I currently have a Springfield Armory Loaded M1A 22".  Right now I am using a SEI mount with Nikon Monarch 4-16x42 scope.  I use this rifle to hunt and having fun with targets.  I am about to upgrade to a Sage EBR stock and was going to upgrade the optics also.  My budget for the scope in less than $1000, was thinking about a leupold vxIII 4.5-14x40 with custom dials.  Have read a lot of the postings here and value the information on this site.  Just want some opinions to make sure I don't miss anything before I make the purchase.  Thanks

I think the Vortex Viper PST would be a better value and better glass

Actually the $1000 is more like $700 for the budget.  The 4.5-14x40 is the "LR" model with 30mm tube and side parallax adjustment.

These will be out very soon I already ordered one they are a better choice for you. If you still have to go leupold go Mk4 4.5-14x40 it already has target knobs but they are 1/4 moa and 1/10 mil with a mil dot reticle is a better fix.  First Focal plane means it will  mil dot range at any power or that you can use the marks for hold over at any power.

I'm not an optics expert by any means, but is the glass that much better than a leupold vxIII?  I've studied the forum and noticed that there is not a lot of high regards to leupold glass.  I just always thought leupold was good.  That's why I am here looking for guidance.  Thanks for the answers.
