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 duplex 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 57 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 duplex reticle features thick posts with a thin crosshair that won't obstruct the target. 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 helps increase holding force. 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. The rugged design is bolstered by the use of DiamondCoat 2 protective lens coatings.

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

    Leupold VX-3i reviews

    VX-3i 3.5-10x40mm CDS Riflescope (Duplex Reticle) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible scope for my tikka T3x lite ss .308 Put this on my Tikka T3x lite stainless steal with Sako Optilock mounts. Cabelas bore sited it, and I went off to fine tune it. Sighted in at 100 yards. 1st shot was 2 to the left and 1 high. Dialed in the adjustment and the next three shots were in the bullseye and could be covered by a nickle...almost a dime. The CDS dial for this load is on order, and can't wait for deer season to open. The range marshal stopped by when I pulled in my 100 yard target and stated, nice shooting, how long you been shooting that rifle, to which I replied with a grin...about 20 minutes! Great scope...clear...accurate...well made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light transmission and detailed image After the very quick delivery from B&H Photo, I went home and compared the difference between the VX-3i and a VX2 that I had mounted on one of my rifles. I waited until it was almost dark outside and compared the two. I know I am not comparing apples to apples, but there was a very big difference between the two Leopold's. I picked out an object about 125 yds away and while I could see it just fine w/ the VX2, I could get very detailed images w/ the VX3i. I would absolutely purchase another!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VX3i 3.5x10x40 CDS scope review Great scope . I have a couple of these on my big game rifles , clear optics and plenty of magnification and clarity out to 500yds for big game hunting . The cds dial combined with a good range finder makes longer shots a snap . This scope has plenty of eye relief and a generous tube length which make getting the right eye relief easy on a long action rifle . Great product and great company

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I was going to purchase a straight 4X scope for hunting but glad I have the 3.5-10X. I have been sighting in and have a zero at 200 yards with this scope on 10X. It is compact and clear. I have not had a chance to take it out in the field and hunt yet but it appears to be everything Leopold is advertised to be!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope at the best price found B&H had the best price and I looked hard. Scope is extreamly light and some confuse that with cheap quality. Not true. This scope is very light but has the same Leupold quality you expect. I'm very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect scope for hunting I love this scope. I shot four deer this past season with it. The clarity and function is remarkable. In addition, the custom dial made shooting at distance a breeze. You cannot go wrong with this scope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SCOPE! Leupold is the best scope value on the market. Put this VX3 on a Weatherby 300 wing and within 4 shots had it zeroed in.
