My favorite big game hunting scope is the Leupold 2.5 x 8 by 36 mm with the Duplex Reticle. I also have the German #4 reticle in a 1.5 x 5 by 20 mm Leupold. I have been thinking about getting another 2.5 x 8 Leupold with the Post and Cross Hair Reticle that the Leupold Custom Shop offers. Those Duplex Reticles are good, especially at the range, but I am not convinced they are the best for the majority of hunting I do. Which is moose in the timber. Just wondering what you guys like for your Alaskan big game rifle. I am pretty sure the Duplex Reticle is going to be what most are using. I am also not a fan of big scopes and big objective lens. Lots of my friends use them though.
