There are places you can only take the essentials, and only if those essentials make weight. The Northwestern backcountry is a rough, rugged place, and you need gear designed to survive that environment and still deliver in the clutch. Leupold’s award-winning VX-5HD is the optic you’ll want at your side when the time comes to drop that long awaited trophy. Designed to be everything you need and nothing you don’t, the VX-5HD offers high-definition lenses and extended low-light hunting performance, a two-turn elevation adjustment for more accurate shooting at longer distances, Guard-ion lens coatings to shed water, dirt, and fingerprints, and a product lineup that was built from the ground up to appeal to our nation’s hunters.

A 5:1 zoom ratio means the VX-5HD line is available in 1-5, 2-10, and 3-15 power models, with varying objective lens diameters. Duplex, Illuminated FireDot Duplex, Boone & Crockett, Wind-Plex, and Impact-29 MOA reticles are also available, again providing maximum versatility. Illuminated reticles feature Leupold’s Motion Sensor Technology (MST), which puts the FireDot into a battery-saving standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. When the MST detects motion, it instantly activates the sight, so it’s ready when you are. The entire line also features 30mm maintubes.

Simply put, you’re looking at the lightest and most rugged riflescope in its class. Want to know more? We’ve got you covered.

Superior Low-Light Performance
Get behind a VX-5HD and you’ll see the difference. Every scope in the line offers superior edge-to-edge clarity and extreme low-light performance. Leupold’s Twilight Max HD Light Management System delivers the perfect balance of image color and contrast, light transmission, and glare management, so you’ll get the best picture any time of day. Most scopes only focus on transmitting high percentages of midday light, while the VX-5HD gives you maximum transmission of the entire visible spectrum. Why does that matter? The human eye is most sensitive to colors outside the middle of the spectrum during dawn and dusk, when game is moving – this system literally helps you see more in less light. Superior glare reduction, meanwhile, ensures the maximum amount of usable light gets to your eye. Leupold’s proprietary lens coatings and superior optical design help deliver the very best contrast and resolution, ensuring you’ll be able to see things like tines in heavy timber. With Twilight Max HD, your trophy shouldn’t be able to give you the slip in low light.

Custom Dial System
Leupold’s one-of-a-kind Custom Dial System (CDS) makes accurate long-range shooting this simple: range your target, turn your CDS dial to match the range, aim dead on, and then squeeze the trigger. With a CDS dial and some practice, you can shoot farther and more accurately than ever before. Here’s how it works: Leupold customizes your scope’s elevation dial to match your exact load, velocity, and even the average atmospheric conditions where you hunt for unprecedented precision. With your CDS dial, you’ll easily compensate for bullet drop and make ultra-quick adjustments on the fly without having to worry about holdovers. You can even create multiple dials for the same riflescope to match different loads or different conditions. A free CDS dial is offered with the purchase of any CDS-ready riflescope, and extra dials are available for a nominal fee. CDS-ready scopes also come with a zero stop feature, precision click adjustments for accurate zeroing, and the CDS-ZeroLock 2 feature, which allows for two revolutions of elevation adjustment for extended distances. CDS is available on all VX-6HD and VX-6 models, and select VX-5HD, VX-3i, VX-R, and VX-Freedom models. CDS dials are also excellent when paired with a Leupold rangefinder, thanks to the company’s exclusive True Ballistic Range technology. Use True Ballistic Range to get the most accurate ballistic range to your target, and then set your CDS to the correct number. It’s as easy as that.

Built to Last
Like every riflescope offered by Leupold, the VX-5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in Beaverton, Oregon – and it’s built to withstand a lifetime of abuse. Further, the VX-5HD features Leupold’s exclusive, proprietary gas blend, which nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock and reduces the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope. Every Leupold riflescope model is “Punisher” tested and verified to perform under the harshest conditions, so it can withstand whatever you might be able to throw at it. That said, if you do ever have a problem, know that the VX-5HD is backed by Leupold’s legendary Full Lifetime Guarantee.
