    was reading the midwayusa catalog, and found a scope that says that you can find the setting for your round, set the cam
    to the proper setting, and then you can adjust for holding right on target shoots at any range between 200 and 600 yrds.
    does anyone have any time behind one of these scopes. it sounds pretty good, kinda like the shepard scope, but is a lot more affordable. thanks, Brian.

    My friend has an older model and it works well. I am interested in how the new Leatherwood scopes perfom also - they are a bit pricy to just take a chance on. FYI I have one of the new Leatherwood scope base units on my M1A and I would rate it 7.5 - 8 out of 10.

    Just found your message about leatherwood scope. Was wondering if you bought one, and how it is.

    no, i havent bought one... yet... and i dont know if i will, but i just thought that they would be kinda cool. i like the idea of the sheperds scope, but they start around a grand. i cant afford that. so, the next best thing seemed to be the leatherwood cam-puter scope. i just though the same, and figurered i would ask before i bought.



    edit...


    i have a question for those that might know. i am reading info on these, specifically the m-600, 5.56-.223, and it states that the ranging is for 200-600 yards. does this mean that it does not range properly at say... 100 yards? this, i would say, is my delema on purchasing the scope.

    They are a Chinese made scope in a somewhat cheezy mount with some of it being potmetal. A far cry from the older Leatherwoods! Don't know about all but some of the older Leatherwoods I believe were made by a company called Realist. Looked at one of the new models about 5yrs ago at a Cabelas Bargain Cave and could see why it was returned and in the 'Bargain Cave'!!!!! Save your money. If you want to waste it send it to me and you'll only be p***ed for a week or so ;)

    I don't know. I've been researching ranging scopes for almost 3 months and can't find a, one scope does it all yet.

    There isn’t a lot to choose from with ranging reticles. Certainly nothing else like the ART scope. I waited and found a great deal on an ART II to put on my M1a. I suggest you just haunt forums until you find a used old style for a good price.

    Shepherd scopes makes interesting range finding reticles. Kalinka Optics has cool com bloc optics too. I think the best bet might to get something with a milling reticle and a Mil Dot Master and learn how to range that way.
