Leupold VX-3HD 6.5-20×50 Side Focus CDS-T Scope

The Leupold VX-3HD 6.5-20×50 is a second focal plane scope. It delvers legendary performance in an incredibly tough and lightweight package. It’s the perfect workhorse for taking mid to long range shots from the firing line.

Using Leupold’s Elite Optical System, the VX-3HD provides superior dawn to dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, high performance glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity diehard hunters and shooter demand. Leupold also gave it match grade repeatability and ergonomic controls that are easy to read and use, even with gloves.

Everything put into your VX-3HD is there to help you dominate the competitions. With its CDS-T dial, you’ll get access to the entire adjustment range of your scope in precise 1/4 MOA increments. Like all Leupold scopes, it’s designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.

Leupold VX-3HD 6.5-20×50 Features

3:1 Zoom Ratio

A 3:1 zoom ratio is very common in many scope models. It gives you 3 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 3x: 1.5-5, 2.5-8, 3-9, 3.5-10, etc.), so you can dial your power down for close encounters or all of the way up for long range shots.

Custom Dial System

Leupold’s Custom Dial System (CDS) gives you the ability to customize your turret (adjustment dial) to your exact ballistics and environmental conditions. Once your new custom dial is installed, simply range the target, turn the dial to that number and aim dead on.

Side Focus

The side focus adjusts the scope’s parallax, making the reticle clearer and have less perceived movement when you’re shooting at different distances.

Elite Optical System

Leupold’s Elite Optical System offers excellent dawn to dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, elite level glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that diehard hunters and shooters demand.

High Definition

High definition, calcium fluoride lenses ensure incredible clarity at all magnification levels.

Removable Throw Lever

The removable, low profile throw lever makes changing magnifications quick and easy. It includes a thread protector plug to use when the lever is removed.

Waterproof, Fogproof & Shockproof

Leupold pioneered modern waterproof and fogproof technology using advanced internal gasses and sealing methods that withstand extreme temperatures, elevation changes, and shocks, so the internals of the optics stay moisture free and crystal clear for life.

Fine Duplex

Based on Leupold’s Duplex style design
