New Leupold VX®-I Scopes For Shotgun, Muzzleloader Shooting
Hunting Gear - — Leupold® introduces two new VX®-I scopes designed for close-range sport shooting with shotguns and muzzleloaders. Both the VX-I 1-4x20mm and VX-I 2-7x33mm Shotgun/Muzzleloader scopes offer features to help spot game and place shots precisely, even in thick cover. With parallax adjusted to 75 yards – a common range for shotgun or muzzleloader hunting – each variable power model offers a wide field of view from 24 to 75 feet. Leupold’s Heavy Duplex® reticle makes the scopes especially effective in low-light conditions.
“Our new VX-I Shotgun/Muzzleloader scopes are tailored to the specific needs of those who enjoy the close-range action found in both these types of hunting,” said Mike Slack, Leupold’s marketing communications manager. “They also have the same general features common to all Leupold scopes: quality optics, rugged dependability, and absolute waterproof and fog proof integrity. Either scope provides hunters in weapon-restricted states with the opportunity to use a very good optic.”
The shotgun/muzzleloader scopes also feature Leupold’s standard multicoat lens system to help deliver a clear, bright sight picture with the contrast needed to visually pick game out of cover. Both models come in a matte black finish to minimize the possibility of game-spooking glare and maximize concealment potential.
Other key features:
• Micro-friction dials for adjustment of elevation and windage (1/4-MOA each). •
Maintube diameter: one inch. •
Environmental protection: each scope is designed to be fully waterproof, shockproof and fog proof. •
VX-I 1-4x20mm weight and length: 9 ounces (255.2 grams), 9.2 inches (23.4 centimeters). •
