The new Leupold VX-3i offers improved performance and apparently it is now more affordable. The Twilight Max Light Management System delivers the highest average light transmission in all colours with emphasis on the blue and red portions of the light spectrum for exceptional low light performance and contrast in all conditions.
Edge blackened lenses reduce diffusion and glare to improve resolution and contrast. Second generation Argon/Krypton gas more effectively resists thermal shock and the dual spring precision adjustment system ensures match grade repeatability and strength.
The redesigned power selector is easy to grasp and turn and allows the shooter to quickly verify the power setting even with gloved hands.
DiamondCoat 2 external lens coatings for scratch resistance and each Leupold Gold Ring riflescope is factory tested to be for ruggedness, reliability and absolute waterproof integrity, with the Leupold Full Lifetime Guarantee.
The new 6.5-300 Weatherby Magnum is ideally suited for shooting at extended ranges. Mine is topped with Leupold's new VX-6 3-18x44mm, which is well-suited for such work. A power range of 3X to 18X means this VX-6 is adequate for varmint hunting, with plenty of magnification for any open country big-game hunting. Dial the scope back to 3JC, and it is equally useful for close-range work.
All this in a reasonably compact package g that looks as good as it performs on a hunting rifle. The Custom Dial System (CDS) turret is a value-added feature of the scope. Measure the load and send the data to Leupold, who will return a turret calibrated to your chosen load, simplifying elevation corrections. From $1,560.
