Is there not any body that can refute or confirm the FOV listed on this scope? It's showing as 75.9ft on 3 x (3-18x model), which seems way too good to be true.

I am not sure where you are getting your info, but the Leupold site says 36.8' at 100yds. SWFA's site says the same thing.

I could be wrong but that sounds incorrect. If you go to the Leupold website the 2-12x42 only shows 57' FOV. The Swarovski z6 3-18, which is also 6:1, shows just under 40' FOV.

Leupold doesn't even list it on their website yet (hunting scopes), I'm guessing they released incorrect info months ago to their distributors and you have to either wait for Leupold to update their web site, call them, or web surf for what might be the correct info.

Disregard I listed the tactical Mark 6 and not the VX6.

I'm sure your deduction/reason is correct...I'd think 37-40' would be in order.
