The Best Riflescopes of 2018

Leupold Mark 5HD Riflescope


The award-winning Mark 5HD launched in early 2018 and combines elite optical performance, rugged reliability, and user-friendly features in a package that could only be produced by leveraging the 70 years of optics manufacturing expertise that Leupold possesses. This innovative riflescope has wowed shooters throughout the industry and is collecting the hardware to prove it.

Designed to redefine what a riflescope can be, the Mark 5HD delivers all the features long-range shooters have been asking for in a user-friendly package. Elite professionals and top-level competition shooters were consulted throughout the design process, and the end result is a riflescope that provides edge-to-edge clarity, extreme low-light performance, increased travel, improved ergonomics and without question, rugged reliability.

The heart of the Mark 5HD is the all-new M5C3 ZeroLock adjustments, which provide precise, repeatable tracking with a dead-on return to zero. Offering a 35mm maintube and three revolutions (30-mils) of elevation adjustment, the Mark 5HD was built to max out the performance of the latest long range rifles and ammo. This riflescope is ergonomically designed with more tactile, audible click adjustments, larger numbers, illuminated reticles, and a high-speed throw lever, so you can put accurate fire downrange faster.

Pick up a Mark 5HD, and you’ll feel the difference: it’s up to 20 ounces lighter than other scopes in its class. Get behind one, and you’ll see the difference. And like all Leupold riflescopes, the game-changing Mark 5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and covered by Leupold’s Lifetime Guarantee.
