Leupold VX-3i overview

  • 1Description

Handle your short to medium distance shooting optic needs with the matte black VX-3i 3.5-10x40mm CDS Riflescope, featuring their Custom Dial System and Wind-Plex reticle. 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 Twilight Max Light Management System balances light wavelengths to give you the best possible sight picture even in the low-light conditions of dawn and dusk. To further improve contrast and reduce stray light, the eco-friendly, lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened.

This scope offers 52 MOA of windage and elevation adjustment with a 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction to help compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop. The Wind-Plex reticle has a series of hashes on the horizontal axis to compensate for wind deflection. It is located on the second focal plane, so it is unaffected by magnification.

The easy turn power Selector makes changing magnification simple, even with gloves on. The 6061-T6 aluminum housing is lightweight and durable, waterproof, fogproof, and features a twin bias spring erector system that increases holding force. To prevent fogging-up of the optics when you are moving through environments with changing temperatures, the housing is filled with a mixture of krypton and argon gases. The rugged design is bolstered by the use of DiamondCoat protective lens coatings.

Custom Dial System (CDS)
  • Allows the buyer to contact Leupold and receive one custom BDC (bullet drop compensating) 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

    Leupold VX-3i reviews

    VX-3i 3.5-10x40mm CDS Riflescope (Wind-Plex Reticle) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational Scope! I purchased my 4th Leupold scope for my new 270 win rifle. After mounting the VX 3i scope to the rifle and with very little effort in dialing in the MOA for a 200 yard zero, I took it out on a Blackbuck Antelope hunt. My hunt was an exhilarating success with a 130 yard an ethical shot to the sweet spot. Gotta love Leupold! My scopes have never let me down... yet another sensational scope-- alway providing an excellent product with consistent reliability and clarity thats hard to beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope by far I've bought a wide variety of scopes over the last few years. Also sent a wide variety of scopes in for repairs. I've bought bushnell DOA, vortex, a few other bushnells. All have done well on the range but failed in the field. First time at the range with my leupold was amazing. Dialed the scope in under a box of shells. Took it out a few more times just to make sure it was good. Put it on an animal. Hit a perfect heart shot. This scope is amazing and plan on buying another one for my deer rifle. Definitely my best bought scope yet

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Scope! Bought this a few weeks ago for Kimber .300 Win.Mag. and I love this thing so far! We hunt hogs everyweek in Texas mostly in early morning or early evening when light is low! The brightness compared to even other Leupold scopes is tremendous and I will be scoping up the .270 with this scope as well. Pickup up a sunshade for those early morning direct sunlight conditions and it works very well too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scopes! Have used two rifles with VX-3is. Formerly an airport screener, I opened many cases with euroscopes that cost 2x as much as the rifle they're mounted on. Were it me, I would put this on my gun and buy something else with the 1000 bucks I saved. And be just as happy with the scope! My TC Contenders and rifles wear Leupold scopes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb hunting scope I've had this scope for 4 weeks and have just got back from my first hunt using it. The scope performed impeccably. Using this scope from early morning through to late afternoon the clarity achieved from this scope is like nothing i have used before. I highly recommend this range of scopes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search for confidence I have bought and used most major brands of scope. Scopes that promised to do this and do that. But my hunting trips were often tainted with dissapointment. Leupold was always on my to do list, they had a solid reputation as the best value for money scope on the market, and a trusted brand. So i sold up my expensive scopes and bought a vx3 cds scope. at half the price of the scopes i owened i was immeadiately suprised on the quality of the scope and its clarity. Upon sighting in the scope i managed some handy groups at 100 yrds. Finally the confidence i had been looking for in my gear!!! I set out on gathering the ballistic infomation for my free custom dial. And contacted Leupold Australia about making a dial for my ammunition. The service was excellent. I had the dial on my rifle within days. Test day on the range proved the cds system too be absolutely spot on. Shooting from 100 too 600 meters without fuss. My hunting trips have never been better. Because i can rely on my leupold to get the job done. The confidence and the success i have is down too having the right tools for the job. To say the Leupold Vx3i cds has made me a better shooter is an understatement. Thanks Leupold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sock? I've owned and still own much more expensive scopes but the clairity of this one is as good as any. My disappointment isn't in the scope but the sock. Why would you change from a proven tool.
