Hi Halil, now that is very interesting as unless something has changed recently Leupold were not interested in supplying custom scopes outside of the US.
I have a friend who lives in Florida and he tried ordering a custom shop Competition scope for me last year but they wouldn't supply with the TMR reticle or with target turrets so I cancelled.

Maybe as Turkey is outside of the EU the same rules don't apply, either way I think some photos of the scope and reticle would be appreciated.

Superb, that is one very special scope indeed. I currently have a SIII Sightron which is good but it's a little heavy.
One thing the fixed power scopes do is teach you to address the target correctly, i.e. align your body, look at the target and then bring the rifle up and the reticle is on the target.

Roughly how long did you wait for the scope to be custom built and shipped?

Thanks for your help, I think I'll have to get in contact with Leupold again.
Enjoy the scope, the x40 has it all, clarity, rangefinding, durability, temperature resistance and lack of weight.

Finally if you decide it's not for you, I'll buy it off you...

That looks perfect Halil , well worth the Waite .
When you use it can you reply back on how much reticle a 40mm kill at 55 yds takes up.
