Leupold’s popular VX Freedom line of scopes provide excellent performance in a feature-rich package at an affordable price. For 2019, Leupold has released four new VX Freedom scopes in a 30mm main tube and have added features like calibrated ballistic turrets, illuminated Fire Dot reticles, side focus and Tri MOA reticles. No matter which caliber or distance you need to deliver shots on target, the Leupold VX Freedom line has a scope for you, now with even more range of adjustment. Each VX Freedom comes covered with the best-in-class lifetime, no questions asked, Leupold Warranty. And best of all, they are built right here in the U.S.A.
The four new scopes with a 30mm tube are the 3-9x40AR BDC with Firedot Duplex that has been calibrated for the ballistics of a 55 grain .223 round, the 3-9x40 with Firedot Duplex, the 4-12x40 CDS with Tri MOA and side focus, and the 6-18x40 CDS with Tri MOA and side focus.
The larger tube of these new scopes provides more range of adjustment over the one-inch tube models, increasing the versatility of your scope for a wider range of applications, loads and distances.
Fire Dot Reticle
The Fire Dot reticle uses a fiber optic illumination point for a much sharper aiming point over projected dots. The Motion Sensing Technology turns off the scope after five minutes of inactivity and instantly springs back to life when the scope is moved, to prolong battery life and ensure that it is ready the moment you need it. For long-term storage or transport, the dot can be easily turned off and a simple push of the button reactivates it for use. The red dot quickly draws your eye to the center of the reticle and features eight brightness levels, with easy push-button activation and adjustment.
Tri MOA Reticle
The Leupold proprietary Tri MOA Reticle provides subtentions in 1 MOA increments on the sides and bottom of the crosshairs, leaving the upper crosshair as a standard line, to avoid obstructing the target. Longer lines at the 5 MOA point make it easy to quickly make adjustments on the fly. Each reticle provides 10 MOA of hold-over.
CDS (Custom Dial System)
Leupold scopes with CDS come with a standard factory dial for computing adjustment and operates in standard ¼ click per MOA. Once the user determines their load and collects their ballistic data, the information is provided to Leupold, who then laser-cuts a new dial with your data. This means that instead of computing how many clicks of adjustment for a particular range, the user simply dials to the range cut on the dial; 3 for 300 yards, 1.5 for 150 yards, 5 for 500 yards, and so on. This custom dial is included in the price of the purchase, with each scope the user buys getting one dial included. If you plan to use multiple loads on your rifle, you can order additional dials for a nominal fee.
