Would you choose something different for the same $350-$400. I'm looking at their Uni-Dial line and am interested in a mil-dot scope with a high magnification (18x +) for my varmint AR.

Please chime in if you've tried a Leatherwood!

I have tried several Leatherwood scopes, the CAMputer, for a 30-06, the unidial for a .308, and after going thru 5 CAMputer models all with varying degrees of FAILURE, from simply not performing as they are advertised.

The camputer is supposed to be able to Zero at 200 yard and simply dial in out to 1000 yards but at 300 yards it was about 6 inches off to the right and at 400 almost 12 and so on.

I also had the front Lense fall and internal parts falling out on a hunting trip.

The engineering is good but the Chinese production is extremely poor.

I would definitely never recommend them to anyone. Ever.

I bought the computer model and took it out the box and put it right back in the box it's not a very good scope, got a mark 4 LRT 4.5x14x50 INSTEAD
