Leupold VX®-I Riflescopes -Ballistic Aiming System
Rifle Scope Reviews
Leupold® offers a new modified version of its Ballistic Aiming System™ (BAS) in select 2006 VX®-I riflescope models to help hunters consistently make accurate, long-range shots. First introduced in Leupold’s VX-III riflescopes, the original BAS is comprised of two specialized reticles – the Boone and Crockett Big Game™ reticle and the Varmint Hunter’s reticle. These reticles are designed to take into account all the variables crucial to accurate, long-range shooting.
The new BAS version available in VX-I riflescopes is called the Long Range (LR) Duplex reticle. It provides the proper holdover points for a rifle’s ballistic profile, with a Duplex® central aiming point for rifles zeroed at 200 yards, and calibrated hold points for 300, 400 and 500 yards.
“Our Ballistic Aiming System has already helped many hunters improve their long-range accuracy,” said Mike Slack, Leupold’s marketing communications manager. “Now, those with VX-I scopes can benefit from the same technology. With practice, the LR Duplex reticle can teach users how to gauge the distance to their target and where to place the reticle for that specific distance. The end result is more successful hunts with clean and efficient harvests.”
VX-I riflescopes with the LR Duplex reticle are available in several of the most popular hunting magnifications: 2-7x33mm, 3-9x40mm, 3-9x50mm and 4-12x40mm. Finish options include gloss black and matte black for all models. The 3-9x40mm model also comes in a silver finish.
Leupold designed VX-I to be the world’s best riflescope in the $200-$300 retail price range, offering exceptional optical quality, rugged waterproof construction and repeatable accuracy.
Key features include 1/4-MOA Micro-friction™ elevation and windage dials to help ensure quick and reliable point-of-impact adjustment, and Leupold’s standard multicoat lens system to enhance brightness, clarity and contrast, with crisp edge-to-edge sharpness across the visual field.
VX-I has a one-inch maintube diameter and is designed to provide generous, non-critical eye relief while withstanding repeated recoil. Like all Leupold Golden Ring® scopes, it is built for reliable use under harsh field conditions including extreme heat and cold, wet weather and the hard knocks common to hunting.
Backed by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee, the VX-I has passed stringent impact and waterproofing/anti-fogging tests.
