The matte black 3-18x50 VX-6 Side Focus Riflescope CDS-ZL from Leupold features their Custom Dial System and Zero Lock technology to give the performance serious shooters demand. At the heart of the CDS is a customizable Bullet Drop Compensation elevation dial; just send your information to Leupold and you'll receive a dial that's custom-tailored to your individual loads. The adjustment dials of the ZL system can be repositioned to align with the marked zero indicator of the adjustment without changing the adjustment setting of the scope for repeatability in the field or at the range.
This VX-6 scope features a fine Duplex reticle with thick outer posts and a center crosshair located on the second focal plane, and a side focus parallax adjustment turret. A six to one zoom ratio delivers clear images from edge-to-edge throughout the entire magnification range, unlike many higher power scopes that provide the best picture at each end of the zoom range. The optics feature Leupold's Xtended Twilight Lens System with index matched glass that is coated in wavelength specific lens coatings to optimize the transmission of low-light wavelengths.The rugged design is bolstered by the use of DiamondCoat 2 protective lens coatings and water and fogproof performance is ensured by the use of an argon/krypton gas mixture.
Custom Dial System (CDS)
Allows the buyer to contact Leupold and receive one custom BDC (Bullet Drop Compensation) dial free of charge. Leupold will build a custom turret dial based on the ballistic information of the cartridge that the buyer intends to use with their firearm. The scope ships with completely functional stock turrets. The custom turret may be added later, if desired
