Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has introduced its new line of VX-5HD optics, which the company says is designed for the sufficient hunter that's looking to take themselves to the next level.
The VX-5HD features a 5x erector assembly, which places it somewhere between Leupold's existing VX-3i and VX-6HD lines. With 1-5x, 2-10x and 3-15x models in the initial launch, there should be a VX-5HD out there for any task a hunter requires.
"Every year, more hunters are going beyond their comfort zone to take on ever bigger adventures," said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "The VX-5HD is designed and built to help these hunters expand their hunts from bigger game to more challenging areas. If you can dream it, the VX-5HD can hunt it."
The VX-5HD features the Twilight Max Light Management System, which should help is deliver a crisp, clear image from first light to last light. New CDS-ZL2 adjustments offer a secure locking dial, which is calibrated to your exact rifle and load using the company's Custom Dial System technology. The CDS-ZL2 allows for two complete revolutions of the dial, set to your ballistics.
The VX-5HD is available in 1-5x24mm, 2-10x42mm and 3-15x56mm, all featuring a 30mm maintube. A variety of reticles are available.
