Outfit your rifle for long-range shooting with the Leupold VX-3i 6.5-20x50mm Side Focus CDS Riflescope, with 30mm maintube and Target Dot reticle. At the heart of 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 environmentally 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 Target Dot reticle is a conventional shooter's dot which is supported by extremely thin crosshairs. 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 by 30%. 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
