FX-3 Competition Hunter 6x42mm Adj. Obj. is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great F-class Scope. Started using late last year on my F T/R rifle. Extremely clear at 600 and 1000 yards, and accurate adjustments when correcting for point of impact. Returns to zero repeatedly and holds points of impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope out there. I've had this scope for just a year now and I honestly wish this scope was made years ago. If I had the money every rifle I had would have this on it. Especially with one free turret customized with the purchase. Leupold knows what they are doing and I have multiple scopes and every one has yet to disappoint me. Thanks for the amazing product you put out there...... And never stop making the VX-6

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! Mounted on my custom M1903A4 Springfield chambered in 7.62 NATO. Scope is worth more than the rifle. Accuracy out to 600 yds is unsurpassed for this set up. Could not be more pleased! Highly recommended scope for long distance shooters. Ammo is hand loaded to current GI specs Mk 316 Mod 0, using a SMK 175 BTHP pushed with 41.75 gr of IMR 4074. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from reliability counts! I am a pro 3 gun shooter (sponsored by Leupold), but I felt it right to share that I'm proud to partner with the best, because this is my livelihood and performing well matters! My Mark 6 1-6 scope get used and abused, more so than probably any other consumer, except for military. It's nice to know you can count on your glass every time!
