Leupold VX-R overview

  • 1Description

Decorated with a 24k gold-plated ring and a medallion, the matte black VX-R 3-9x40 Riflescope from Leupold is designed for medium-to-long range shooting and features an Illuminated BDC Ballistic FireDot Reticle. The optical system offers index-matched multiple anti-glare coatings that reduce reflections and maximize light transmission. The Quantum Optical System enhances resolution and color fidelity and increases transmission to 92%. In order to improve contrast and reduce stray light, the environmentally friendly lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened. You don't have to worry about scratching the objective while you move through thick woods or bushes, the DiamondCoat 2 anti-scratch coating will protect the surface from accidental damage. To help you compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope offers a 60 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range with a 1/4 MOA impact point correction.

The Illuminated Ballistic FireDot Reticle features a bright fine center dot that is ideal for extended range fast target acquisition. Because of its location in the second focal plane, the reticle will remain the same in size as you change zoom factor.

The 6061-T6 aluminum housing is lightweight and durable, waterproof, fogproof, and features a twin bias spring erector system that increases holding force by 30%. To prevent fogging-up of optics when you are moving through environments with changing temperatures, the housing is filled with a mixture of krypton and argon gases. Also included with the riflescope are one CR-2032 battery and a bikini style lens cover.

    Leupold VX-R reviews

    VX-R 3-9x40 Riflescope (Illuminated BDC Ballistic FireDot Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scope Ever Purchased two of these scopes during the past year. One is on a Remington SR-25, 7MM-08, and one is mounted on a Browning Micro Midas 7MM-08. With aging eyes the red dot is just great. Never use the cross hairs. Have taken several deer from 50 yards out to 300 yards with this scope just looking at the red dot only. I also have several other Leupold scopes on various rifles and never have had any problems with them but the dot in the VX-R beats anything I've ever seen. Recently bought a Delta Point Pro to be mounted on a Ruger Super Blackhawk. The quality of these products can be beat by any other company. The rings a outstanding also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Clarity I didn't want to give up my red dot scope but needed some magnification for these old eyes. Found the best of both worlds with this VX-R 3x9x40 Leupold scope. Very clear and lets plenty of light in. The red fire dot is adjustable for different lighting situations. This scope is clearly the right choice for me. Thought about saving some money and buying something cheaper, sure glad I went with the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply The Best I bought this scope (3-9x40) at the beginning of Sambar hound hunting season here in Victoria, Australia and honestly couldn’t be happier with it. I find the fire dot draws your eye straight to where it needs to be for those fast snap shots. Having taken 7 Sambar for the year with it mounted on my 325wsm I’m one happy hunter who won’t buy anything but a Leupold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Red Spot Great scope; the red dot really aids in focusing on the animal. Great at dawn and dusk too. Of course the scope is crystal clear as you would expect from Leupold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from top quality and piece of mind I have recently taken ownership of a new leupold VXR 3-9x40 FireDot scope, mounted on top of a browning xbolt 300wm stainless steel carbon fiber composite stalker with a 26" fluted barrel, and my son's ruger 30-06 with a vx1 leupold 3-9x40 We are far from rich shooters, so all our savings have gone into our new toys and their set ups.. I must say that I'm very impressed with these scopes... Be it hunting pig, dear, wild dog or shooting target at the range, these scope has all that we need and much more, we have two other scoped rifles with different manufactured brands and there's no doubt in my mind with the proof on paper and out in the field that the Leupold VXR 3-9x40 FireDot scope and all the Leupold scope range leave the competition far behind. The field of view, clear lenses, moa turrets and the whole look and feel of the leupold range are second to none, with the life time warranty to back it up... piece of mind every time, in time we are hoping to be able to afford something larger in the leupold VX series however until then what we have is doing the job Leupold is definitely an outstanding product that has outstanding performance....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hunting Scope We got two of these scopes a year ago they work great, they have incredible low light visibility. The clarity in the glass is Excelent! They are a little pricey but worth it. One can always depend on this scope for dependability and accuracy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than expected Ease of use is awesome. Automatic turn off/on works better than expected. Simply push once to manually turn on. Can't see myself ever going back to a standard illuminated reticle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and Wide Field of View I love the illuminated reticle. The scope is light for a 30 MM tube.
