Default New Scope Purchase today...Im pumped!!

I had 20% off coupon at

Bought this bad boy: Leupold Mk4 LR/T 4.5-14x50 M1 Mt Illum MD

Any experiences with Mark 4s welcome. Been shooting my friends long enough. Worked with MK4s with a few different contracting agencies, and felt they def. hold up well to dust. Felt that the strongest part of the optic are the turrets. Something to be said about confidence in your clicks.

Hopeful for opinions and experiences out there.

they are tough as hell. very durable. my one complaint with my mk4 is the turret clicks. they arent 1/4 moa clicks but they arent QUITE 1/4 inch clicks either leading to a little difficulty at longer ranges. ive got mine dialed in for 168grn bthp up to 600yds by just shooting at various ranges and recording results. if i had to do over i woulda gone nightforce which my next scope will be

Congratulations. It looks like one heck of a scope.
