Product Description

The VX®-3HD 4.5-14x40mm delivers legendary performance and elite optical clarity in an incredibly tough, lightweight package. Its extremely popular magnification range is perfect for timber and western mountain hunting.

The VX-3HD delivers outstanding performance in low light. With Leupold's Elite Optical System, the VX-3HD delivers excellent dawn-to-dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, elite-level glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that diehard hunters and shooters demand. We also gave it match-grade repeatability and ergonomic controls that are easy to read and use, even with gloves. The VX-3HD is the best lightweight, low-light hunting scope in its class. And with its low-profile, one-revolution CDS® ZeroLock® dial, you can be confident your dial will only move when you want it to. Push the button to unlock it, dial, and then rotate it back to zero to lock it in place. It's that simple.

Everything we put into your VX-3HD is there to help you tag out. Like all Leupold riflescopes, it's designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.

  • 3:1 Zoom Ratio: A 3:1 zoom ratio is very common in many scope models. It gives you 3 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 3x: 1.5-5, 2.5-8, 3-9, 3.5-10, etc.), so you can dial your power down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots.
  • Custom Dial System: Leupold's Custom Dial System® (CDS®) gives you the ability to customize your turret (adjustment dial) to your exact ballistics and environmental conditions. Once your new custom dial is installed, simply range the target, turn the dial to that number, and aim dead on.
  • Zero Lock Dial: The ZeroLock® system eliminates accidental dial movement by locking it in place.
  • Lightweight Aluminum Housing: Aluminum offers excellent durability and ruggedness without adding unnecessary weight.
  • Lockable Eyepiece: A traditional eyepiece lock ring allows you to lock in a focus setting that is best for your eye.
  • Scratch Resistant Lenses: Hardened surface coatings are added to meet extreme military standards in scratch resistance and added lens protection.
  • Waterproof, Fogproof, & Shockproof: 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.

Great scope
Like it so much I'm considering ordering a second when they come back in stock. Having a problem deciding between it and the one with side focus/parallax adj. Already have 3 older 3.5X10 VX-III's, 9-3X9 VX-II's, and 1-2X7 VX-II.

CDS is the best!!!
I researched this scope to death before I committed to buying it. Without a doubt this is the best scope I have ever purchased!! I dialed the scope in at 100 yards, removed the top cover that came with the scope, replaced it with the custom dial system Leuopld sent me and tightened a couple of set screws. I was smacking a 6" spinner plate at 100, 200, 300 & 400 yards with the first shot each time I dialed the scope to the corresponding yardage marker. This is a total game changer. I am now way more confident about my long distance shooting ability with the CDS system taking out most of the corrections needed to make a clean ethical shot at those distances. I will never purchase another scope that does not have a CDS system attached to it.

When I purchased my favorite rifle several years ago, I put another highly regarded brand of scope on the rifle. After several hunts that scope fogged up and was like looking through wax paper at max magnification I had to switch back to Leupold. I’ve always been an advocate for Leupold and that will continue as the unbelievable clarity, sight picture, durability, and warranty is unmatched without stepping into much higher cost bracket. The VX3HD 4-12 is my standard for all my rifles going forward and I won’t be trying another brand because of hyped up warranties or whatever the their selling point may be.
