Leupold VX-R 1.25-4 Pig Plex

    Over at GunBlast Jeff Quinn reviews the Leupold VX-R 1.25-4x illuminated scope with the Pig Plex reticle.

    Jeff says

    The unique Pig Plex reticle of the VX-R Hog uses three heavy posts for the bottom vertical and the outward portions of the horizontal crosshairs. These are heavy and bold enough that Leupold has plenty of room to place the words “Pig” and “Plex” within the horizontal crosshair. These heavy posts naturally and quickly guide the eye to the center, where Leupold uses a circle-dot, with two additional aiming points below the circle, giving the shooter a total of six aiming points, using the edges of the circle, the center dot, the lower cross wires, and the top of the bottom post. In addition, on the thin portion of the horizontal crosshair, there are two hash marks to help with the correct lead on a running animal.

    The Leupold VX-R debuted at SHOT Show. The quality of the glass, I was told by a Leupold rep, sits in between the VX2 and VX3 glass quality. They are really nice scopes and I plan on buying one in the near future.
