Steve at the Club has that Leup now . it ranges well and he does well with it . only thing wrong with it is it has a blank spot of three yards . so i try to make sure there are no targets on our course at those distances . he only shoots at our club . so it suits him . lightens the FTP too . ??? HOLLY

 

PS on a calm day , that is the most accurate rifle i have ever shot . takes a fair bit of windage though . when it is windy .

3 yards seems very excessive, usually around 1 yard 1 foot 3" if brought down.

Well believe me i have tried , no matter what you do . that is what it stays at . it is set at 58 yards so 55 is out of focus . if you bring it down to 50 yards you can get it down to a yard . but then you cannot range 52 = 55 yards . neil reckons nick said on occasions a few of em . just won't come down to 15 . my one comes down to 17 yards ???

Not set to 58 yards then more like 62+
To set at 58 focus at infinate leave alone. Then need to focus that 58 yards by adjusting front lens.

Mine blacked out at 57 1/2 yards couldnt see a thing. Blank spot 14 yards  1 or 2 foot to 15 yards 2 foot 9" they all vary a bit.

True Dave but you can still use a monkey wrench to unlock the front bell locking ring.

Just about not making best use of any scope to just using as it comes. All scopes differ even March but dont try it on a BSA or Niko it wont work, well only done 3 that it did perform better.

In other words have to play around and see what works best and whats tolerable rather than rely on what others say or have done.

 

Both PR Leups of mine responded drastically to dropping as low as i dare. Normally get bigger gaps but that means nothing without control and perception.

Now Matts PR Leup Mark 4 40 mag responds better around the 300-350 mark where its better than tring to range 30 yards set low around 60 yards. Thats why you have to spend some time or will find it will be for sale next week. My Mark 4 was 3rd hand in 1999 two months old, both couldnt use it but loved it after.

That's like trying to teach a chimp how to fly the space shuttle....:grin:

I'm pretty sure that it was Holly who offered to adjust someone's 20-50 objective once and slipped with the metal bar wedged in the slots...I'm sure the guy has polished out the resultant 'scratch' on the lens....:rolleyes:

As usual you have got your facts wrong colin . i was shown how to do it properly by northern bob . you use a long metal ruler , which overlaps the lens .you cannot scratch the lens . you are thinking of lord briscoe  . as syco calls him . who rather inadvisably used a flat bladed screw driver . ohwerrr mother . in theory they are supposed to come down to 15 yards . then the 50 foot adapter comes into play . but as said some just do not work like that . so you adjust to get the best top end that you want . which means that the 50 foot adapter comes into play further out . as said my lupe comes down after adjustment  to 17 yards . my score on sunday i think attests to the accuracy of it's ranging . so stick that in your pipe and smoke it ???

Are you sure you weren't overseeing Lord Briscoe in his endeavours...:grin:

Smoking was never my style.

My x40 comp. comes down to 10yds and tops out at about 75yds and that without an adaptor in sight though I suspect the front lens may have been changed in order to get t this.

If i had some where to shoot the last 2 1/2 years things might have been different. It forced me to part ways 5 months ago with rifle, not to mention havent had a scope since September 2013.
Reckon it would take me 12 months to get back in to it, there again any wind or snow round here shoots are cancelled. 10 yrs we'll be shooting in climate controlled
