Whether you’re looking to top your custom rifle like this one, or just a factory gun that shoots really well, one thing you need to know is: Your optics are just as important as your rifle when it comes to accuracy. Good rule of thumb is to spend as much money on your optics as you do on your rifle. The gold ring of Leupold and the VX-6 models of rifle scopes is worthy of being on top of any rifle ever built.
The VX-6 line of rifle scopes comes in various different kinds of models, from the 1-6×24 all the way out to the 7-42×56 models. Most of this line comes with a 30mm tube, however the higher magnification units come with a 34mm tube, which allows for greater windage and elevation adjustments, which is ideal for long-range shooting, as it is with this model.
This scope features unsurpassed light transmission, un compromised mechanical performance, and unbeatable optical clarity. The VX-6 is undeniably as good as it gets when it comes to high-end optics. The powerful 6-1 zoom ratio makes this scope ideal for all ranges, whether you’re stalking animals in the timber or laying out prone to take a 700-yard shot at an antelope. You can count on a good field of view and the ability to put the crosshairs right on the hair you want to hit.
The features and benefits of this scope are nothing short of spectacular. Leupold’s quantum optical system with legendary extend-twilight lense coatings and diamond-coat tube, combined with edge black and lead-free lenses enable the scope to provide crystal-clear images at those most critical hours when game is most active, and sub-standard optics falls short.
The extreme fast-focus eyepiece ensures a generous eye box, superior field of view, and an optical diopter adjustment in the field. The illuminated reticle VX-6 models feature either traditional or super bright fire dot illumination. The one-button low-profile design allows users to choose between 12 intensity settings. Proprietary motion sensor technology automatically deactivates illumination after five minutes of inactivity, yet reactivates as soon as any movement is detected. It comes with twin bias spring erector system, and a pop-up zero finger click adjustment ensures maximum adjustment for range and precision.
The 34mm tube on this scope is very rugged, it gathers a lot of light, and it’s unbelievably lightweight. The scope weighs in at 24.3 ounces, making it a great choice for those of you looking to top an ultralight rifle, and still keep it ultra-light.
All Leupold VX-6 rifle scopes have Custom Dial System, and include a free customized dial with purchase. the CDS dials allow you to quickly dial your elevation to different sight-in ranges with a custom adjustment matched to your specific ballistic information. The CDS dials change out easily allowing for flexibility with different loads, conditions, and caibers. Every CDS dial features quarter-MOA ajdustments, or one centimeter per click for the metric versions, which is finger-adjustable, and no adjustment covers to lose, making it simple to operate and extremely accurate.

The CDS system works by laser-inscribing your scope’s elevation dial to match your load, velocity, and conditions, once you have validated your data. Your scope will be in perfect sync with how your rifle and loads shoot, regardless of shooting factory ammunition or handloads. Each CDS dial is unique, taking all practical ballistics and environmental factors into account, and is a must for anyone looking to take shots at animals out past 500 yards and be consistent.
