    Default B&C reticle opinions

    Just wanted to get opinions on hunting with these scopes. How do they work in the field? Heck how do they work period? It would seem if you switch loads from 1 species to another that it would be almost usless. Please educate me!

    I wouldn't rely on it, unless you knew where your rifle hit with each load with the scope. I guess it is knowing your gear and how to use it. Lets say you sighted it in for 2 hundred yards now your using the 3 hundred yard mark and you hit high. You know the scope isn't set up for that load. But if you work with your equipment and know that the 3 hundred yard mark hits at 325 yards then the scope will work for you. Just know your equipment and where it shoots and you will be ok. They will work great. Just have a data book telling you what each cross hair is for, and what bullet you are using.

    Barko is right on. I have the B&C on a 4.5-10X Luppy. I like it. I just keep where my rounds it for the given range on a small laminated card thats taped to the stock. So in the heat of the moment I can look down and see my yardarge info. Just remember that the scope meeds to be dialed all the way up to make the numbers work. If you try to use the cross hairs at 7x and your sited in at 10x, you're gonna be high.

    I think you can send your scope to Leupold along with the ballistics of your pet load and they'll adjust the reticle to match your load. Never tried the B&C.
