    I have a Leapold 4.5-14 tactical Varx 3 on my Rem 700 VLS. Today when I was firing it would get blury at 100 yards off and on it was random. It was not hot out. It happened to by buddy too when he fired it. I tried playing with the eye relief and the paralex adjustment. Nothing worked. Target still got blury would fade in and out. Whats wrong. Should I send the scope back to leapold. I did not notice a problem on my AR10 T with a Leapold 4-12.

    If two guys both seem to feel that the scope is randomly comeing into and out of focus, I'd send it back to Leupold.

    And it's www.leupold.com so you don't type in the wrong address. ;)

    Sounds like you're getting mirage from a hot barrell, Thats what those extender tubes are for. They dont eliminate it but do reduce the sffect.

    355SIGfan;

    When I've visited my dad in Arkansas, I've noticed (Oh boy did I ever notice) a very high humidity condition. Although I don't know what area of Arkansas you're in, would it be possible that a ground mist, fog, whatever, may be causing the problem you & your friend are noticing?
