I've got the VX6HD 3-18x44 with TMOA reticle and love it. Only had it out a few times, but really like what I've seen so far. Crisp image and tracks well.

I got one recently but have not spent any time behind it. I can tell you though, the glass quality will blow away the Mark 4. Its a significant upgrade from them.

Personally at that price point I would be looking at the sig tango or bushnel extreme... But i'm picky on reticles... Soooo that would mean a lot to me

Also athalon... Kinda depends on how good your deal is too haha

Im running the 4-24 with the impact reticle on my 28 nosler and it is amazing! I've got a few of the 3-18's also, but to my eye, the 4-24 has better clarity and a lot more light gathering perceived. IMO you cant go wrong with any of the VX6-HD's

Thanks, I have leupold 4-14x50 LRT with illuminated TMR reticle.
On by Grendel and really like it, but with my eyes today looking for a little more power for the top of my sendero 7mag.

Iíve got the vx3-i LRP 6.5-20 and 4-15, non-illuminated TMR reticles, and they are great, but they donít hold a candle to the vx6-hd. Better clarity, turret feels better, better eye relief. Canít say enough good things about the HD.

Thanks y’all,
I went with a Leupold Mark 4 LR/T 6.5-20x50mm (30mm) M1 Illum. TMR.
$1,250 new. The 6HD is $2,000 plus $200+ for 34mm Rings and mounts.
I already have 30mm Leupold mounts on.

In case you havenít used the B&C reticle before, just know that it is very thick, if youíre planning on shooting small targets at distance.
