Is there a good scope man out there that can change scope reticles?
in short yes, depends which reticle and which scope.

It got to the point where I need help in crosshair visibility and don't need the distraction of the dot. For these I think the cost was $45 each and that included return, next day shipping.
Wally Siebert is another source.

Then ther are aeveral private individuals like Wally Siebert, Premier and Bill Akerman who will do about anything you wish to them, at a cost of course.
I have sent many Leupold's back to Oregon over the years and they have been a pleasure to deal with. I assume they are still the same fine company.
I always found it best to call and talk to a real person in the service department. They can explain exactly what services they offer, how much it will cost, how to pack and ship the scope, etc.
The same advice goes for guys like Wally and Bill. Call them.
As far as Premier goes good luck now. Premier used to do work on Leupolds then they got hooked up with Schmidt Bender, then there was a fiasco with Schmidt Bender, now they make their own scope and claim it to be comparable to a schidt bender, I have not heard that they are back working on Leupolds though.
