VX-6HD 3-18x44mm

The VX-6HD is begging to go where other scopes can’t. We gave it new High-Definition lenses for sharpened clarity, and the Twilight Max™ Light Management System for even greater low-light performance, giving hunters a visible advantage at dawn and dusk when the biggest game is on the move. The new CDS-ZL2 dial locks in place so it cannot be inadvertently rotated off its zero. A mere press of a button will allow the user to dial up elevation, up to 40 MOA (80cm), if necessary. All Leupold VX-HD riflescopes are CDS capable and include one free Custom Ballistic Dial with purchase. To take it totally over the top, we added an in-scope cant indicator for precise leveling, a throw lever for fast magnification changes, and an even more robust erector system. Alumina flip-back lens covers included..

    More Reticle Information
VX-6HD 3-18x44mm (30mm) CDS-ZL2 Side Focus is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from scope is absolutely everything it says I absolutely love the scope, super clear and easy to adjust and dial in. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because it didn't come with the alumina lens covers like it says it does. Everything else about the scope is top notch, just ordered a sense shade from optics planet, the 44mm lets in tons of light for dusk time shooting. Would definitely buy another one of these scopes for another rifle.

1/4 MOA Finger Click

Finger click adjustments for windage and elevation (¼-MOA) offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use (metric adjustments – 1 cm per click).

30mm Maintube

6061-T6 Aircraft Quality Aluminum

6:1 Zoom Ratio

A powerful 6:1 zoom ratio delivers crystal clear images from edge-to-edge throughout the entire magnification range. Many higher power scopes provide the best picture at each end of the zoom ratio, leaving the middle ranges weaker on clarity and resolution. The Leupold 6X erector system was engineered from the outset to provide consistently exceptional image quality across the entire visual field throughtout the entire zoom range. Twin Bias Spring Erector System features berylium/copper alloy leaf springs and 30% more holding force to withstand the most intense recoil and abuse.

Alumina Flipback Lens Covers Included

CDS-ZL2 Zero Lock Adjustment with Revolution Indicator

Electronic Reticle Level

Mount the VX-6HD perfectly level using the user activated Electronic Reticle Level.  The illuminated reticle will flash when the scope is at an angle of greater than one degree, and will stop flashing when it is level.  You can shoot more accurately at longer distances by ensuring your rifle is level.

Extended Battery Life

Extreme Fast-Focus Eyepiece

The extreme fast-focus eyepiece ensures a generous eyebox, superior field of view and optimal diopter adjustment in the field. It allows the the user to adjust through the full range of diopter adjustment in one complete turn of the eyepiece.

FireDot Illumination

Select models are available with our exclusive FireDot Reticle System in your choice of FireDot Duplex, FireDot Circle, Ballistic FireDot, FireDot LR Duplex, FireDot 4, FireDot Pig Plex, FireDot TMR and FireDot SPR. Once activated, the dot within the reticle illuminates with bright, sharp definition, while the rest of the reticle is non-illuminated. This combination leads your eye naturally to the center aiming point and makes target acquisition quick, precise, and simple.

Generous Eyebox

The generous eyebox makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots you'll appreciate the flexibility it affords, and in close up big game or dangerous game situations the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. At high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible head position latitude and an improved sight pictue that fills the eyepiece completely - putting you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.

Guard-Ion - Rain shedding coating

Water, dirt and fingerprint shedding lens coating. Extremely durable and scratch resistant.

MST (Motion Sensor Technology)

An important feature of select Illuminated reticle models is the Leupold-exclusive Motion Sensor Technology (MST). A single touch of the button or twist of the dial activates the illumination, offering several different intensity settings (depending on model) including a high/low indicator (FireDot reticles only). The reticle will automatically switch to “stand-by mode” after five minutes of inactivity, then reactivate whenever the rifle is moved. This eliminates the need for excess movement reaching for buttons, while extending battery life (powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery.

Metric Finger Click (German #4 and FireDot 4)

Precision metric finger click adjustments for windage and elevation adjust in increments of 1 centimeter at 100 meters and offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime extreme use. All Leupold scopes with German #4 and FireDot 4 reticles have metric adjustments.

Push Button Illumination

Reversible Throw Lever

Clamps onto VX-6HD power selector to provide leverage for fast magnification changes, left or right handed.

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.

Twin Bias Spring Erector System

Waterproof/Fogproof

Xtended Twilight Lens System

Now your hunt can reach further into the twilight than ever before possible, with our exclusive new Xtended Twilight Lens System™. It goes a step further than even the Index Matched Lens System®, using Leupold’s® index matched glass with wavelength specific lens coatings designed to optimize the transmission of low-light wavelengths. When most scope manufacturers quote percentage of light transmission, they usually mean at 550 nm, the green wavelength where the human eye is most sensitive. The challenge is that in twilight conditions, green light disappears and blue/violet light takes over. Your eye is already handicapped when it comes to seeing the blue/violet spectrum, and if your scope is cutting too much of it out, soon you won’t be seeing anything. The Xtended Twilight Lens System places extra emphasis on matching coatings to glass indices to achieve the best possible transmission of the blue/violet spectrum, without sacrificing the color balanced light transmission across the visual spectrum of the Index Matched Lens System. When we combine that with superior computer-generated optical design, lead-free lenses of unsurpassed clarity and quality, and 100 years of manufacturing excellence, you have a scope that gives you the details of low-light scenes in greater definition and luminance than any other scope in the world.
