Leupold VX-5HD – Riflescopes for Hunters
Leupold released a new series of rifle scopes, the VX-5HD that are designed for hunting. These scopes are designed to enable the self-sufficient hunter to push them and their gear to go after bigger challenges and hunts.
The VX-5HD series is placed between Leupold’s VX-6HD and VX-3i series. The tube is sized at 30 mm for all scopes in the series. The VX-5HD series is available in 1-5x24mm, 2-10x42mm and 3-15x56mm. The reticle choices range from Duplex to FireDot4, Wind-Plex, Impact-29 MOA to Boone and Crockett Big Game. A variety of these reticles are also available as an illuminated choice.
The scopes feature a 5x erector assembly. With the VX-3i series sporting a 3x and the VX-6HD offering a 6x, the VX-5HD is squarely positioned in between those two series.
Some scopes in the lineup also offer the CDS-ZL2 adjustments by Leupold. These provide a secure locking dial. They also allow a shooter to calibrate the scope to the rifle and load through the Custom Dial System technology by Leupold. The CDS-ZL2 allows to precisely set the scope to your ballistics by allowing two complete revolutions of the dial.
The VX-5HD scopes have Leupold’s Twilight Max Light Management System. This delivers high-definition performance for a clear and crisp image across a variety of light surroundings. From the first light in the morning to the last light at night the scopes are designed to provide a HD image for the hunter.
