The VX®-3HD 6.5-20x40mm delivers legendary performance in an incredibly tough and lightweight package. It's the perfect workhorse for taking mid to long-range shots from the firing line.

Using Leupold’s Elite Optical System, the VX-3HD provides superior dawn-to-dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, high-performance glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity diehard hunters and shooters demand. It features a front parallax focus ring that adjusts from infinity all the way down to 10 meters, making it ideal for airguns or rimfire rifles. And we also gave it match-grade repeatability and ergonomic controls that are easy to read and use, even with gloves.

Everything we put into your VX-3HD is there to help you dominate the competition. With its CDS-T dial, you'll get access to the entire adjustment range of your scope in precise ¼-MOA increments. And like all Leupold riflescopes, it's designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.

Features
A 3:1 zoom ratio is very common in many scope models. It gives you 3 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 3x: 1.5-5, 2.5-8, 3-9, 3.5-10, etc.), so you can dial your power down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots.
Leupold's Custom Dial System® (CDS®) gives you the ability to customize your turret (adjustment dial) to your exact ballistics and environmental conditions. Once your new custom dial is installed, simply range the target, turn the dial to that number, and aim dead on.
An adjustable objective focuses the scope to minimize the effects of parallax at different distances.
Leupold’s Elite Optical System offers excellent dawn-to-dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, elite-level glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that diehard hunters and shooters demand.
High-definition, calcium-fluoride lenses ensure incredible clarity at all magnification levels.
Leupold pioneered modern waterproof and fogproof technology using advanced internal gasses and sealing methods that withstand extreme temperatures, elevation changes, and shocks, so the internals of the optics stay moisture free and crystal clear for life.
