If you have a Lyman Alaskan with post and crosshair reticle which you would like to exchange for a crosshair or dot reticle, I will be glad to accommodate you. I have several of both and prefer the post and crosshair.

Xausa appreciate the offer and I will keep you in mind. I am holding things up and speculating. It is a supergrade Win 54 with a G&h side mount. It appears I May be able to mount the Leupold far enough forward to use the safety which would seal the deal for me.

No concern about eye relief with an Alaskan. You could mount it far enough forward to clear the bolt handle as well.

Depends on how you use them, but a fourth line, especially the overhead wire makes it a lot more likely you can see enough to make the shot. The bottom post, wire, bead, whatever, is the most likely to be invisible in poor light. That's why I like four. One truly only needs to see one segment of horizontal and one of vertical. The rest are a luxury.



Really????... you're really saying that a fine top vertical reticle wire is more visible under low light conditions than a post??? That is absurd, and PhysDoc is 100% correct about what is better for fast target acquisition under low light hunting conditions.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

I use the 4 post w/x hair, 3 post German "standard", and post w/horizontal hair. They are all good in low light, but the 4 post is best, if you "loose" it you can raise it up to the horizon and "find" it again. My favorite is still the 3 post, because of the pointed vertical post when light is better.

.

My long time fave is a PCH (post & crosshair), but I've come to prefer my Trijicon Accupoint's illuminated post for hunting.

Actually, a POA anywhere in between the tip of the post's delta and the horizontal crosshair will be a telling POI (game shot), if you think about the group size your rifle is capable of shooting.
