VX-6HD: Elite Leupold Performance

Relentless Performance Starts with Leupold’s VX-6HD

Designed to represent the best of Leupold’s Gold Ring riflescope line, the VX-6HD has it all. It offers extended low-light hunting performance, a locking two-turn elevation adjustment for simple and accurate shooting at longer distances, a ZeroLock windage adjustment, bright illumination for clearer low-light shot placement, an in-scope Electronic Reticle Level, and high-definition lenses featuring Guard-ion lens coatings to shed water, dirt, and fingerprints.

So what else sets this scope apart from the competition? Let’s start with the magnification ranges. We all know that bigger magnification ranges equal more versatility in the field, and the VX-6HD is as versatile as they come. The 6 in VX-6HD means the line has a 6:1 zoom ratio (which directly relates to its magnification ranges), so it’s available in a 1-6, 2-12, 3-18, and 4-24 power magnification model. Take advantage of its super low power for a wider field-of-view in thick underbrush, or dial it up to a higher power to make longer-range shots feel extremely close. No matter which model you choose, you’ll get extreme performance and versatility at both ends of the spectrum.

Most of the models also feature 30mm maintubes, which increases your elevation adjustment, allowing you to get more distance out of every caliber (the 4-24 comes in a 34mm maintube to extend your reach even farther). And if you’re looking for a specific reticle, the VX-6HD has got you covered as well. FireDot Duplex, FireDot Circle, FireDot Bullet-Drop, FireDot-G BDC, CM-R², T-MOA, Boone & Crocket Big Game, Varmint Hunter, Impact-23 MOA, Impact-29 MOA, and Impact-45 MOA are all available, and they all feature illumination for easier shot placement in low-light situations. On top of that, all of the illuminated reticles feature Leupold's Motion Sensor Technology (MST), which puts the illuminated reticles into a battery-saving standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. When the MST detects motion, it instantly activates the sight, so it's ready when you are.

Another feature exclusive to the VX-6HD is Leupold’s Electronic Reticle Level. Tilt the VX-6HD more than one degree left or right and the illuminated reticle blinks. Bring it back to level, and the reticle will remain solid. Tilt beyond 30 degrees and the illumination turns off to save battery life. This is a great feature for long-range shooting or even mounting your scope.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg...

See More in Less Light

Get behind a VX-6HD and you’ll see the difference Leupold’s Twilight Max HD Light Management System makes. It delivers the perfect balance of true image color and contrast, light transmission, and glare management, so you’ll get the best picture possible, any time of day.

Most scopes only focus on transmitting high percentages of midday light, but the VX-6HD is designed to outperform the rest under any lighting conditions, so no matter what time of day you’re shooting, you’ll see a bright, clear image. Put it to the test at dusk and dawn, when animals are moving the most, and you’ll really notice the difference; often extending good shooting light by 15 to 30 minutes.

Superior glare reduction means getting the maximum amount of usable light to your eye while filtering out the rest, so images don't get as washed out when looking into the direction of the sun. Combine that with proprietary lens coatings and an elite optical design, and you'll experience a noticeable improvement in contrast and resolution, ensuring you'll be able to see important details like antler tines in heavy timber. Twilight Max HD is also available on Leupold’s other top-tier hunting products, like the BX-5 Santiam HD binocular.

Eliminate the Need for Holdovers

Leupold's one-of-a-kind Custom Dial System (CDS) makes accurate, long-range shooting extremely simple: Just range your target, turn your CDS dial to that distance, and aim dead on. With a CDS dial you no longer have to worry about holdovers when aiming. Here's how it works: Leupold creates a custom elevation dial that matches your exact load, velocity, and even the average atmospheric conditions where you hunt for unprecedented precision. With your CDS dial, you'll easily compensate for bullet drop and be able to make ultra-quick adjustments on the fly. You can even create multiple dials for the same riflescope to match different loads or different conditions. A free CDS dial is included with the purchase of any CDS-ready riflescope, and extra dials are available for a nominal fee. CDS-ready scopes also come with a zero stop, precision click adjustments for accurate zeroing, and the CDS-ZeroLock 2 feature, which allows for two revolutions of elevation adjustment for extended shooting distances. CDS is standard on all VX-6HD models.

CDS dials are also excellent when paired with a Leupold rangefinder, thanks to the company's exclusive True Ballistic Range technology (TBR). Use True Ballistic Range to get the most accurate ballistic range to your target, and then, set your CDS to the correct number for amazing first-shot success.

Built to Last

Like every riflescope offered by Leupold, the VX-6HD is designed, machined, and assembled in Beaverton, Oregon – and is built to withstand a lifetime of abuse. Further, the VX-6HD features Leupold’s exclusive proprietary gas blend, which nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock and reduces the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope. The result is better waterproofing and fogproofing regardless of your altitude. Every Leupold riflescope model is “Punisher” tested and verified to perform under the harshest conditions, so it can withstand whatever you might be able to throw at it. That said, if you do ever have a problem, know that the VX-6HD is backed by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee
