Leupold VX-3i overview

  • 1Description

Outfit your rifle or slug gun with the Leupold VX-3i 4.5-14x40mm Side Focus Riflescope with duplex reticle for serious short to long range performance. Combined with the 30mm maintube, 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 environmentally friendly lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened.

To help compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope offers a 113 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range with a 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction. The duplex reticle features thick posts with a thin crosshair that won't obscure 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, 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.

    Leupold VX-3i reviews

    VX-3i 4.5-14x40mm Side Focus Riflescope (30mm Maintube, Duplex Reticle) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope Excellent scope. I have it mounted on Model 70 Supergrade in 300 Win Mag. Clarity is excellent. Holds it zero. Its a quality product. This scopes clarity and light gathering is equal to my Swarovski and Kahles scopes and its made in the USA. It's my 5th Leupold made scope (3 Leupold VX-3's and 2 Redfield Revolutions).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprizingly effective This is a relatively compact scope but provides great features - superior - resolution, performance in poor light, easy mounting, accurate adjustments. It is mounted on a Ruger M77 MKII with a custom McGowen 6.5X47 Lapua 1-8 barrel. Using Leupold medium height 30mm rings intended for the Ruger M77 it fits just fine on this rifle that has a high comb roll over stock with perfect eye relief. Shooting at 300 yards under poor light, cold, and gusty winds @ 10 o'clock I was able to place hits on steel within 1-2 inches of intended using the wind-plex reticle having 1 moa gradations. I use primarily the 123 grain Hornady 6.5 ELD match bullet and 123 SST with Re15 - this is my general purpose, go to rifle. A CDS dial will be ordered when I figure out how fast it shoots and how well the 123 ELD will kill deer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't get much better than this!!!! I have used this scope on my hunting rifle for 2 seasons and don't ever plan on taking it off or replacing it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product especially after adding the CDS dial Had it a few months now and really think it is a fine product. I have this one on a Savage B mag and just ordered one to put on my Tika 223
