SHOT Show 2020 – Leupold's VX-Freedom and VX-5HD riflescope lines are boosted this year by several new entries, including a staggering five fresh additions to the VX-Freedom series and a new VX-5HD variant with milliradian adjustments
New for 2020 at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Leupold & Stevens, Inc. – America's premier manufacturer of sporting, hunting and tactical optics – officially debuted five new entries in its already extensive VX-Freedom line of award-winning riflescopes and a new variant in the VX-5HD, now offering milliradian adjustments.
The third wave of VX-Freedom riflescopes comes on the heels of the 16 models that launched last year. The new lineup delivers even more usability to the already versatile VX-Freedom family. Two of the new models incorporate FireDot illumination, while two more deliver greater magnification than previously available.
Both new illuminated options feature 30mm maintubes and a fast-focus eyepiece – one is a 3-9x40 with an illuminated FireDot Duplex reticle, the other a 3-9x40 AR model with a .223 ballistic dial and milliradian turrets to run alongside its FireDot Tri-Mil reticle. New 4-12x40 and 6-18x40 scopes have a 30mm maintube, a Tri-MOA reticle, and Leupold’s Custom Dial System (CDS) feature. Both models also have a side-focus feature, allowing for more rapid, convenient parallax adjustment.
The list of Leupold VX-Freedom riflescopes is long and we strongly invite you to see all the available models by visiting directly the official Leupold webpage.
The new Leupold VX-5HD riflescope with Mil-based adjustments and a Tactical Milling Reticle (TMR) was developed to make sure that hunters and shooters who prefer a milliradian setup can still benefit from the line’s class-leading features.
The TMR reticle featured in the new VX-5HD expands on existing Mil-Dot reticle designs. It utilizes hash marks instead of dots for increased ranging and hold-over precision, while providing aiming points for wind and bullet drop compensation.
Like the entire VX-5HD riflescope line, the new model features Leupold’s Twilight Max HD Light Management System – the same system associated with all of Leupold’s premium products – allowing users to better utilize their optics longer during the early predawn hours to well past dusk.
Twilight Max HD combines exceptional light transmission and glare management to provide vivid images and top-of-the-line optical performance in low-light conditions. The lightweight VX-5HD line disperses recoil energy for unrivaled durability, and is both waterproof and fogproof. Guard-ion lens coatings shed dirt and water for clear, crisp images.
