Leatherwood Hi-Lux Optics PentaLux scopes
With the 2015 Shot Show behind us now I was excited to hear Leatherwood/Hi-Lux is offering a new 5X zoom optics line. The PentaLux TAC-V scopes are based on a “Five Ratio” magnification range offered in 2-10x42mm and 4-20x50mm models. Build with a second focal plane illuminated reticule, 30mm one-piece tube and designed for the serious long range shooter. With a price close to half of what you would pay for other 5x zoom capable optics this Leatherwood offering is sure to be noticed among the shooting community! One interesting factor is with the 5x zoom (2-10 & 4-20) these scopes are shorter than other comparable 5x zoom scope.
TAC-V models offer MIL adjustment each click with either the windage or elevation turret moves bullet impact .01 mil. @ 100 meters. TAC-V models will have an all new illuminated etched glass reticle with ranging scales and hold-over aiming marks in both MRAD and MOA. The side parallax/focus adjustment is moved back and to the left side following suit with other optics manufactures (the 45 degree adjustment knob is unique to Leatherwood/Hi-Lux).
I have noticed point of impact drift while dialing power range with other brand scopes, you won’t find that issue with a Leatherwood! They just plain out hold zero.
