New Leupold VX-6HD Riflescopes
Leupold Introduces new VX-6HD Rifle Scopes
Leupold announced the new VX-6HD rifle scope series with the news release below.
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc., introduces the world’s best hunting riflescope, the new VX®-6HD. It delivers even greater performance to hunters and shooters who demand the best optics in the world.
Featuring Leupold’s exclusive Twilight Max® Light Management System, the VX-6HD delivers high-definition optical performance with the hard-use, rugged reliability only found from Leupold® optics.
“The VX-6 is an incredible riflescope, but we never stop looking for ways to improve,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “We’re relentless in our quest for performance, and the new VX-6HD has reset the standard for premium optics.”
All models of the VX-6HD offer illumination, and include a new electronic reticle-leveling feature. When the scope is canted by more than a single degree, the reticle will flash, alerting the shooter that it is not level. Once squared up, the reticle stops flashing and the user knows their scope is level and a precise shot can be made.
Leupold has designed a new hydrophobic lens coating called Guard-iON™, which repels water, dirt, and fingerprints, leaving the glass crystal clear in even the harshest of environments.
A new locking Custom Dial System® elevation adjustment, the CDS-ZL2, provides two complete revolutions, allowing hunters and shooters to extend their accuracy even further. Calibrated to the specific ballistics of a particular rifle and load, these are the most precise adjustments available on the market today. A turn indicator eliminates confusion and ensures the marksman knows precisely where the scope adjustment sits. In addition, Leupold is also adding ZeroLock® adjustments for the windage dial.
Included with the VX-6HD are Alumina® Flip-Back Lens Covers and a removable throw lever, that simply clamps onto the power selector ring allowing for fast, eyes-free adjustments.
The VX-6HD will be available in magnification ranges of 1-6x24mm, 2-12x42mm, 3-18x44mm, 3-18x50mm and 4-24x52mm. The 6:1 erector system delivers an outstanding field-of-view at lower settings, while still capable of extreme high-magnification. A true one-scope option for any hunting or shooting need.
A wide variety of illuminated reticles are available:
- Illuminated CM-R2
- FireDot Circle
- FireDot-G BDC
- FireDot Bullet-Drop
- Impact-23 MOA
- Impact-29 MOA
- Impact-45 MOA
- Varmint Hunter
With MSRPs starting at above $1,500, the VX-6HD is a solid value for the quality of scope you get.
