    Grammer, spelling and punctuation. These were things the baby boomers were raised with. I fail to see how in today's AMERICAN Society anyone cares about spelling ? When the WEBSTER'S Dictionary now lists the word "disrespected" with the same...

    Thanks, all, for the clarification and suggestions! I guess I have read too much, and think that .001" either way will make more than a small hill of beans difference. :roll: Do you think I may be overthinking the whole shimozzle just a little ? ...

    From personal experience I can tell you that Leopold DOES NOT honor their warranty. If you send them a 30yr old top of the line scope that you spent $125 on in 1974, they will send you a bottom of the barrel scope with fuzzy edges that you can buy...
