VX-3i LRP 4.5-14x50mm

When long range hunters, shooters, or precision rifle competitors need extreme accuracy, the VX-3i LRP (Long Range Precision) delivers. The Twilight Max light management system lets you hunt longer, or pick out distant targets from the shadows with unsurpassed clarity and resolution. Choose first or second focal plane reticles in MOA or MIL, with matching adjustment increments to match your specific shooting style. The all new elevation adjustment features a unique travel indicator marked in 5 mil or 5 moa increments, and is easy to read from the prone or difficult shooting positions. An adjustable zero stop prevents over rotation. The windage dial features a protective cover that can be replaced with the included thread protector if you prefer running an exposed dial. A redesigned power selector with included throw lever makes magnification changes quick and easy. The VX-3i LRP defines Versatility.

VX-3i LRP 4.5-14x50mm (30mm) Side Focus MOA is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from CDS Perfection I mounted this on a Montana Rifle Company X2, chambered in 300WSM. Excellent combination. Spotted a nice buck Thursday evening, with about 10mins of legal shooting light remaining. Through my binoculars, I had a hard time making out his details. Through the VX3I, however, it was much clearer and more apparent he was a shooter. Ranged him at 570, dialed the CDS to 575 and squeezed the trigger. Dropped where he stood, quick and painless as I could have wished for. It's incredible how several years ago, I wouldn't have dreamed of such a shot. The CDS system, paired with a RX series rangefinder work so well together, it's really a confidence booster and a game changer.

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 Best hunting scope on the market! I have owned the Leupold Vx3i CDS for a few months now. This scope is awesome on so many levels - Leupold nailed it with the Vx3i. The clarity of the lens matched by the perfect amount of light being allowed into the lens allows hunters to stay in the field just long enough to see the big bucks appear before the sun goes down. The Vx3i comes with a side focus that is smooth and easy to use. Match this with the windage and 1/4 moa adjustment knobs, both by the way have easy and noticeable clicks which allow for easy adjustment without having to take your eye off of the target, and you're on your way to bagging your limits of game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstrips the competition I purchased my vx3i along with 3 other scopes for a side by side comparison. Hunting in Ireland usually means dull grey blue light and little of it when you need to take a shot. When compared to identical scopes from vortex zeiss and meopta I chose the leupold vx3i as the clear leader for clarity and light transmission. Even I was surprised that it surpassed scopes costing twice as much. The ability to pick out detail in poor light and particularly in timber and brush means that leupold has a permanent place in my gun cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational Scope! I purchased my 4th Leupold scope for my new 270 win rifle. After mounting the VX 3i scope to the rifle and with very little effort in dialing in the MOA for a 200 yard zero, I took it out on a Blackbuck Antelope hunt. My hunt was an exhilarating success with a 130 yard an ethical shot to the sweet spot. Gotta love Leupold! My scopes have never let me down... yet another sensational scope-- alway providing an excellent product with consistent reliability and clarity thats hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Im pleased I am not new to leupold, in fact leupold is the only optic i have ever owned so far. I am no expert shooter by no means. I am a deer hunter and have been for most of my life. I decided i wanted to get into longer range shooting so i decided to put this scope with CDS on my newly purchased remington sendero 7mm rem mag. I did everything leupold said do when sighting it in and sent them the info and got my turret in less than 2 weeks. I went today and shot at 200, 500, 700 yards and all shots would have killed the deer. The scope tracked right and as far as im concerned worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vx3i 1.75x6x32 Where I live in Wales in U.K. The normal trend is to have 56 lense 30 mm tube scope even for woodland hunting ,it's like hunting with a drainage pipe on your rifle , They are to big of scope for my 30/30 for woodland stalking ,this leupold scope is a example of great engineering and value for money ,the low light is transfer is brilliant for such a small objective lense and one ins tube ,I don't see buying any other brand when leupold offers these scopes at this quality and value for money ,I have three other leupolds ,4x12x40 European,vx2 3x9x40 and fx3 6x42 all have served me well ,I have a new sako 85 barvarian carbine in 30 06 on order can't see me putting anything other than a vxi3 on it ,, quality,reliable,tough and at a new lower price , a happy and satisfied hunter

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly disappointed I bought this new and took it to the range yesterday. Shooting a known accurate 30/06 I was spraying 3-6" groups at 150m. Scope adjustments were not responsive. Checked screws, all were snug/tight as they should. Finally dry fired at the target and noticed the reticle move almost 3" as scaled on paper. Highly disappointed at the lack of quality and care. My time is valuable and I cherish the few hours every few months I have to spend reloading and testing at the range. Yesterday was wasted because of this scope. Reviewing the forums it appears I am not alone in my concerns.

1/4 MOA Target

2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing

While we still waterproof other optics with bone-dry nitrogen – technology pioneered by Leupold® – Select models feature our exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than our proven nitrogen technology already does. We pioneered riflescope waterproofing, and now with Argon/Krypton we’re exceeding the standards we set ourselves.

30mm Maintube

6061-T6 Aircraft Quality Aluminum

Blackened Lens Edges

Blackened lens edges reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges to provide better resolution, improved contrast and superior optical perrformance.

DiamondCoat 2

Exterior lens surfaces are treated with DiamondCoat 2™, an ion-assist lens coating, for higher light transmission and the greatest level of abrasion resistance we’ve ever offered. DiamondCoat already exceeds military standards for hardness and durability. DiamondCoat 2 offers unsurpassed durability and will prove its worth in the wildest places on earth. DiamondCoat 2 has the additional advantage of assisting in light transmission, for greater brightness, clarity and contrast.

Dual Use

Outstanding accuracy, legendary ruggedness, and absolute waterproof integrity. All Leupold® optics offer performance that makes them equally at home in hunting or tactical environments. Leupold Long Range/Tactical riflescopes are excellent choices for both long-range hunting and varminting. Likewise long-range competitive shooters and members of the Fifty Caliber Shooters Association – men and women who shoot competitively at ranges of 600 yards or more – rely on the accuracy and durability of these scopes. See overview of each product for more detailed information on hunting, shooting, and competition applications.

Twilight Max Light Management System

Light management means delivering usable light to your eye and forming a crisp, high contrasting image. Lens coatings are applied that maximize light transmission in blue colors, since your eye is more sensitive to blue in low light. Red colors are also maximized, since they dominate scenes in typical hunting situations and finally the balancing colors to develop the highest possible contrast. Glare is controlled with special mechanical structures. The end result, you can see antler tines in dark shadows long after the competition has gone home.
