If there's one do-it-all scope, the VX®-6HD 3-18x50mm could be it. Dial it down to 3x magnification to get enough field of view to navigate brush and timber situations, but crank the power selector all the way up to 18x, and you've got enough magnification to dominate any backcountry landscape.

The 3-18x is built around Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions. Its industry leading glare reduction provides a clear image in harsh, direct light, while the resolution and clarity will meet the demands of any professional guide or shooter in the field. The wide zoom range combined with an in-scope electronic reticle level, CDS-ZL2 ZeroLock® elevation dial, and removable throw lever, make your VX-6HD the most versatile Leupold® riflescope ever made.

The VX-6HD goes where other scopes can't. Its unique combination of features, durability, and professional-grade HD optical performance guarantees that it can handle any challenge you throw at it. We built it for anything and everything, including your next epic adventure. It's 100% waterproof and fogproof. And like all Leupold® riflescopes, it's designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.

Features
A versatile 6:1 zoom ratio gives you 6 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 6x: 1-6, 2-12, 3-18, 4-24, etc.), so you can dial your power way down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots. The larger the zoom ratio, the more versatile one scope can be.
High-definition, calcium-fluoride lenses ensure incredible clarity at all magnification levels.
Guard-ion is a hydrophobic lens coating that sheds dirt and water for a maintenance-free, clear, crisp image.
The CDS-ZL2 (ZeroLock 2) provides two revolutions of elevation adjustment while eliminating accidental dial movement with the push-button ZeroLock system. It also features Leupold's award-winning Custom Dial System® (CDS®), which allows shooters to order a laser-marked bullet-drop dial to match their exact ballistics and conditions.
This scopes comes with an illuminated reticle, which can help you get on target faster in low-light situations.
Motion Sensor Technology (MST™) extends battery life by automatically deactivating illuminated reticles after five minutes of inactivity and then reactivates instantly as soon as movement is detected.
The Electronic Reticle will flash when the scope isn't level, promoting more accurate long-range shots. It can also simplify the mounting process.
Our high-quality Alumina® flip-back lens covers thread onto the scope to protect the lens from moisture, dirt, and debris.
This reversible throw lever easily clamps onto specific power-selector rings. Its large surface area makes it ideal for quick magnification changes.
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.
