Leupold VX-3i overview

  • 1Description

Outfit your rifle for long-range shooting with the Leupold VX-3i 6.5-20x50mm Side Focus CDS Riflescope, with 30mm maintube and fine 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.

To help compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope offers a 77 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range with a 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction. A side focus parallax adjustment turret makes adjustments simple, without the need to take your eyes off of the target. The fine duplex reticle features thinner posts and crosshairs that allow for less target coverage making precision shots on small targets easy. 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

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 6.5-20x50mm Side Focus CDS Riflescope (30mm Maintube, Fine Duplex Reticle) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it once and forget about it! VX3i 6.5x20x50 si To start with, I am a long time Leupold user. I have always enjoyed the great clarity, and eye relief a Leupold scope provides. In addition, I have actually dropped a Browning BPR with a Leupold scope 20' to the ground from a deer stand with no loss of zero! The VX3i 6.5x20x50 side focus provides that same great clarity, eye relief, ruggedness, and unbelievable warranty they always have. (I was the beneficiary of warranty replacement so I know). Great scope, legendary company. I know there are "trendy" options out there and new shooters are buying all kinds of scopes based on what looks cool on Instagram. If you want a real scope, for real shooting, choose a Leupold. If you want something they don't have ask the custom shop, real hunters and shooters just like you and me work there!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Picked up this scope for my sons A17 HMR and it made a big improvement over the Nikon he had on it you can't compare the two it was like night and Day!! It dialed in so perfect it groups 5 shots out to 300 yards you can cover with a dime. I am very impressed with the quality of this scope and just how clear it is . He just loves it and been swapping it from the 17 to his 308 for deer and hogs he is waiting on his BDC for the 308 . Again very impressed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics and features! I bought this for my .340 Weatherby AccuMark and a special elk hunt that I drew for that starts October 31 in Colorado. I wanted to take this set up to Raton, NM at the NRA Whittington Center in October 2016 so I could sight the scope/rifle in on a 1000 yd. range. I procrastinated and finally ordered this scope in late September from the custom shop. The technician said it would be 6 weeks. I was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed when it showed up on my doorstep in 3 weeks and the day before we left for Raton, NM. I was able to sight it in and take this setup on my elk hunt. The rifle and scope performed beautifully. I made a 425 yard shot. I was able to hold the cross hairs right on the elk and one shot put it down. A special thank you goes out to the custom shop. You guys are AWESOME! THANKS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and solid I bought this scope in June and it is just what I expected. Very solid clicks on adjustment and brilliantly clear glass works excently. Have it on ER Shaw MK7 .300 Win Mag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope I bought the scope about a month ago, bore sighted it and went to the range. I have several Leupold scopes, but this scope is the "Cadillac " of them all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely clear Ever gun I buy it put a leupold on it even if it comes with a different brand scope I'll swap it out.
