Okay gang, for work off the bench at between 100-300 yards, do we go with the M1 or the M3 Leupold? This scope will be mounted on my M1A. Model will be the 3.5-10x40mm Mk4 with the duplex reticle.

Thanks in advance,

Gary

It all depends on what you want to shoot with it and what you are going for. I have a Mk12 Mod0 with the 3.5-10x40 with the M3 knobs and its fantastic for shooting steel plates out to 700yds accurately. The M1 knobs are real nice if you'll be shooting at a set distance, not that variable distances are overly difficult to do with the M1 knobs- its just easier with the M3. The big advantage of the M1 knobs is the 1/4" clicks are more precise, which is all the better for punching paper.
With the M3 or the M1 knobs on your rifle, find out what your accuracy load is and then mark your scope accordingly for the range.
Personally, I prefer the M3 knobs. I like the fact that I can go 100-1000yd in turn of the knob.

Since you're working at such (relatively) close distances and staying on the bench, I'd say the M1 is definitely the scope for you: you need precision, not a military-style turret built for rapidly engaging targets at varied distances.

If you plan to use the optic for other calibers go with the M3 since it has a BDC for .223, .308, .300 and I think another could be wrong off the top of my head!
