Leupold CDS-ZL2 overview

  • 1Description

Leupold's 3-18x44 VX-6HD CDS-ZL2 Side Focus Riflescope is a new iteration that carries over old reliability and performance but features upgrades such as high-definition (HD) optics, their prorprietary Twilight Max Light Management System, and fast Custom Dial System Zero Lock 2 (CDS-ZL2) elevation and windage dials. While the HD optics ensure high-contrast and true color images, the revolutionary Twilight Max Light Management System features improved transmission throughout the entire visible spectrum—emphasizing reds and blues at the edges of the spectrum, and delivering shooters with an opportunity to see deep into shadows of twilight. Another major improvement is the Guard-Ion hydrophobic optical coating that prevents finger stains and repels water droplets, dust, and dirt from optical surfaces. To improve contrast even further and reduce stray light, the environmentally friendly lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened. DiamondCoat 2 protective coatings on all external surfaces protect the optics from scratches.

Another highlight of this optic is its illuminated 2nd focal plane Boone & Crockett Duplex reticle. It features a modified duplex pattern with CPC-style hold points, power selector ballistic tuning, illuminated crosshair, and hold compensation lines for 200, 300, 400, 450, and 500 yard ranges and 10 mph winds.To help you compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope has 75 MOA windage and elevation adjustment ranges with a 1/4 MOA impact point correction.

To match the impeccable quality of the optics, the housing is crafted from ultra-durable and lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum alloy and features a 30mm maintube. It is filled with an argon-krypton gas mixture to ensure a water and fogproof performance and also offers a lockable eyepiece. The featured CDS-ZL2 finger-operated dials are engineered to provide twice the travel, fast adjustments, and accurate returns to zero.

    Leupold CDS-ZL2 reviews

    3-18x44 VX-6HD CDS-ZL2 Side Focus Riflescope (Boone & Crockett Illuminated Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boone & Crockett reticle is nice I have 4 of the VX-6HD 3-18x44 scopes. The first 3 VX6 scopes I purchased are fire dot duplex and they are fine optics. This is the first Boone & Crockett reticle I purchased. It matches my 6.5 Creedmoor 140 gr ammo well. zero at 200 yds, Using the first hash mark, my 300 yd shots POI were within 1 inch of bull's eye. Very pleased as I prepare to go on a antelope hunt in Wy next week.
