Thanks for all the time and effort and your responces in my "Has anyone heard of Kahles" thread. I took my rifle to SWFA and had them mount and boresight this
A)
Kahles 2.5-10x50 Helia C 51626, Matte finish, 1st focal plane Illuminated 4NK reticle, 30mm tube, fast focus eye piece, close to new condition. $1,594.00 $899.95
Long live the samplelist !!
When I picked my Weatherby Lightweight .240 Wby mag up and looked through the scope I was shocked, it really was clearer than I thought it would be. Much better than my Swarovski PH that was purchased 10 years ago. Can't wait to get to the range and sight that baby in. Yippee
 
Best of both worlds, I just bought a like new condition Kahles CL 3x10x50 Multi-Zero scope, 4A Reticle from a guy on my Texas hunting forum so I get to put that on my Weatherby Accumark 7mm Wby mag soon too. This year is starting out really well for an old fat man.Yippee

huntingtexas, you are my type of guy.  A Wby. man.  That 240 Wby. is a screamer. 
Do you have 257 Wby?  If you do not, you have to have one.  Show us some pics when the rifles are ready.

cool
I just got a Kahles 3-10x50 CL MZ and think I may get another one so that both of my main hunting rifles wear the same optics and take off the Swaroski 3-10 AH I have one one of them and sell it, I also have a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14 that may go as well

One of these Kahles is replacing a 10 year old Swarovski PH. May be the age of the 30mm Swarovski but the 30mm C Kahles beats the socks off of the Swarovski.

Welcome to the OT Meat Head!  I don't want to sound rude here, but if you hang around here long enough, you will become very familiar with Kahles, and realize that it will make your varix 2 look not so clear.  If you get the chance, go to a place that carries kakles, swaro, and zeiss.  Take a look through them next to your leupold.  I think you will notice a big difference.
