With enough magnification to really reach out to the long distances or to see the details necessary for accurate shots on small targets, the LEUPOLD VX-3 6.5-20x40 Long Range Riflescope, Varmint Hunter's Reticle, Matte Black (66535) is an excellent choice for target shooters and varmint hunters alike.
The VX-3 Rifle Scope has a unique Leupold's Xtended Twilight Lens System. The system uses index matched glass with proprietary lens coatings that rebalance blue and purple wavelengths to provide hunters with an even brighter, sharper image in low-light conditions.
Blackened lens edges eliminate residual refraction and minimize the effects of stray light for maximum photopic transmission, clarity and contrast. DiamondCoat 2 - lens coatings on exterior lens surfaces provide the highest level of scratch resistance Leupold has ever offered.
Leupold's Ballistics Aiming System can help you master the art of accurate, long-range shooting. It has proved so successful in helping hunters learn how to shoot accurately at long range, where to place your reticle for that distance, and even how to compensate for wind deflection.
The Leupold VX-3 LR Rifle Scope features a fast-focus eyepiece that lets you zero in on your target with quick, smooth precision, plus 1/4 MOA windage and elevation click adjustments with resettable pointer dials.
With the Second generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing - Leupold's exclusive internal gas blend and the last word in thermal shock resistance, you can keep the riflescope fogproof as well as waterproof.
The Varmint Hunter's reticle will help you hit small targets at longer ranges than ever, by helping you determine the range to the target, then providing precise aiming points for easy-to-remember range increments, as well as wind deflection. Aiming points are fine lines, which won't obscure small targets at long range.
The Varmint Hunter's reticle offers:
A fine lined German #4-style central aiming point (sighted-in at 200 yards in most cases) as well as cross-wire hold points calibrated to 300, 400, and500 yards for most cartridges.
10 and 20 mph windage hold points at both the left and right ends of the 300, 400, and 500 yard cross-wire hold points.
10, 20, and 30 mph windage hold points along the German #4-style central aiming point line.
A prairie dog range estimator between the 500 yard and bottom vertical heavy post.
Other features for the VX-3 6.5-20x40 Long Range Riflescope include cryogenically treated, Titanium-Nitride coated, high-strength aluminum adjustment dials and Leupold's most durable dual spring erector system. This combination of features makes this model riflescope more rugged than ever before. As a final touch to the VX-3, Leupold mounts a 24k gold-plated ring and medallion to each scope.
The Leupold VX-3 riflescope is backed by Leupold's Full Lifetime Guarantee.
