Leupold Rifle Scopes are built for hunters who want more time in the field, and the superior optical system with DiamondCoat 2 ion-assisted lens coatings provides higher light transmission for brighter views even in darker conditions. The VX-3 HD 4.5-14x40mm Riflescope with Wind-Plex Reticle has blackened lens edges that further enhance the brightness and contrast by reducing light diffusion, and the Xtended Twilight lens system ensures you can accurately acquire prey in low-light environments.

Wind Plex Reticle:

  • Expands on the Duplex® reticle
  • Aides in compensating for crosswinds
  • 1 MOA is approximately 1 inch at 100 yards
  • Hash marks are in 1 MOA increments
  • Marks extend to 10 MOA on each side
  • Can be used with any caliber round
  • Best utilized with our CDS® (Custom Dial System®)
  • Rear (second) focal plane
