HowdyI have sent my Leupold 8,5-25X50 back to its country of birth for a make-over.
I have requested M1 turrets both windage and elevation.
They will also replace the reticule (BDC) with a TMR.
 
I am shooting in a comp in a weeks time and I am getting a replacement scope from the agents based in Pretoria. They are trying to sort me out with a first focal plane TMR MK4. It would be great to be able to test the "ranging use", which is my reason for the change.
 
The turnaround on my own scope will be some 3 months. Partly due to shipping time, mostly due to an apparent backlog with Leupold custom shop.
 
Meanwhile you keep the airports open and the roads cleared for fast delivery; and do not send any more work to Leupold till mine is done!!!!Big Smile
 
Once I have tried the TMR I will give some feedback.

Good luck in the comp Wouter and getting your scope back in a timely fashion.
 
p.s. I assume you talked to the brass at Leupold just so they know who they are dealing with?

Wouter,
  You should send them them shooting flies pictures, maybe they'd hook you up product demonstrator.  Everybody knows I'm not a big Leupy fan but I do give them kudos for the custom shop.
