Leupold VX-6HD 3-18x44mm (30mm) CDS-ZL2 Matte Firedot Duplex ScopeRegular price $3,199.00
The VX-6HD is begging to go where other scopes can’t. We gave it new High-Definition lenses for sharpened clarity, and a new light management system for even greater low-light performance, giving hunters a visible advantage at dawn and dusk when the biggest game is on the move. The new CDS-ZL2 dial locks in place so it cannot be inadvertently rotated off its zero. A mere press of a button will allow the user to dial up elevation, up to 40 MOA (80cm), if necessary. All Leupold VX-HD riflescopes are CDS capable. To take it totally over the top, we added an in-scope cant indicator for precise leveling, a throw lever for fast magnification changes, and an even more robust erector system.
With a slightly smaller objective lens than its 50mm counterpart, the VX®-6HD 3-18x44mm can do it all, while packing a little less weight. Dial it down to 3x magnification to get enough field of view to navigate brush and timber or crank the power selector all the way up to 18x to dominate any backcountry landscape.
The 3-18 is built around Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions. Its industry leading glare reduction provides a clear image in harsh, direct light, while the resolution and clarity will meet the demands of any professional guide or shooter in the field. The wide zoom range combined with an in-scope electronic reticle level, CDS-ZL2 ZeroLock® elevation dial, and removable throw lever, make your VX-6HD the most versatile Leupold® riflescope ever made.
This particular model comes with a Firedot Duplex reticle which adds an extra bright center point dot. Perfect for quick target acquisition and the broadest range of game applications.
6:1 ZOOM RATIO
A versatile 6:1 zoom ratio gives you 6 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 6x: 1-6, 2-12, 3-18, 4-24, etc.), so you can dial your power way down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots. The larger the zoom ratio, the more versatile one scope can be.
PROFESSIONAL-GRADE OPTICAL SYSTEM
Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions, industry-leading glare reduction for a clear image in harsh, direct light, and the resolution and clarity that professional guides and shooters demand in the field.
The side focus adjusts the scope's parallax, making the reticle clearer and have less perceived movement when you're shooting at different distances.
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.
CDS-ZL2 ELEVATION DIAL
The CDS-ZL2 (ZeroLock 2) provides two revolutions of elevation adjustment while eliminating accidental dial movement with the push-button ZeroLock system. It also features Leupold's award-winning Custom Dial System® (CDS®), which allows shooters to order a laser-marked bullet-drop dial to match their exact ballistics and conditions.
SECOND FOCAL PLANE
In Second Focal Plane (rear focal plane) scopes, the reticle stays the same size while the target grows and shrinks when you adjust the magnification. These reticles are ideal for lowlight hunting situations and in scopes that don't utilize hash marks for range estimation.
ZERO LOCK DIAL
The ZeroLock® system eliminates accidental dial movement by locking it in place.
ZERO LOCK WINDAGE ADJUSTMENT
Fast and easy windage adjustments with a locking button and rotation stops.
The ZeroStop system creates a backstop when returning the dial back to zero, so you don't accidently turn the dial a full revolution in the wrong direction.
Guard-ion is a hydrophobic lens coating that sheds dirt and water for a maintenance-free, clear, crisp image.
ELECTRONIC RETICLE LEVEL
The Electronic Reticle will flash when the scope isn't level, promoting more accurate long-range shots. It can also simplify the mounting process.
This scopes comes with an illuminated reticle, which can help you get on target faster in low-light situations.
MOTION SENSOR TECHNOLOGY (MST)
Motion Sensor Technology (MST™) extends battery life by automatically deactivating illuminated reticles after five minutes of inactivity and then reactivates instantly as soon as movement is detected.
ALUMINA® FLIPBACK LENS COVERS INCLUDED
Our high-quality Alumina® flip-back lens covers thread onto the scope to protect the lens from moisture, dirt, and debris.
REVERSIBLE THROW LEVER
This reversible throw lever easily clamps onto specific power-selector rings. Its large surface area makes it ideal for quick magnification changes.
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.
