Leupold Mark 4 HAMR - Awesome or Overpriced?
Leupold has expanded their high end tactical Mark 4 scope series with the addition of the new Leupold HAMR, which stands for High Accuracy Multi-Range Riflescope. This scope has 4x magnification with a 24mm objective and features a unique reticle that has an illuminated dot and circle configuration in the center and then non illuminated windage and elevation hash marks. These new scopes feature Leupold’s popular Xtended Twilight Lens System for increased transfer of available light and also features DiamondCoat 2 for protecting the lens from scratches. One of the best features of the new HAMR is the ability to mount a DeltaPoint sight to the top of the scope which allows for quick targeting of objects at close ranges making it suitable for use as an AR15 scope.
Leupold HAMR Key Information
The new Leupold Mark 4 HAMR is a high end optic that is perfectly suited for semi automatic tactical rifles. The reticle allows for shooting accurately out to the maximum effective range of most semi automatic tactical rifles; however, to get the most out of the this scope the majority of shooters will want to add the optional DeltaPoint red dot sight. With a Delta Point sight mounted on top of the optic a shooter can easily and accurately engage targets from point blank range out to several hundred yards. This setup of a low power compact traditional scope combined with the small red dot sight is probably the best set up for anyone with an AR-15 or similar style rifle who wants to set their rifle up for tactical use, and the Leupold HAMR/Deltapoint combination would be hard to beat. Please note some retailers are selling these scope both with and without a DeltaPoint sight so be sure to double check what you are ordering.
