The VX-6 3X18mm riflescope comes in your choice of a 50mm objective or a 44mm objective. It has a 6:1 zoom ratio and a very wide power range, all in one turn of a dial. The scope is available with several different reticles, both illuminated and non-illuminated. The illuminated version has 12 different brightness settings, the top setting being daylight visible.
All VX-6 scopes are CDS-capable. CDS is Leupold’s Custom Dial System. What that means is when you buy the scope you send in your ballistic information, from the bullet you are shooting, how fast it is, its ballistic coefficient, your average altitude and temperature and Leupold will build your a BDC dial to match your ammunition. All the 3X18s will focus from 50 yards out to infinity. The starting retail on the 3X18 is $1,100 and they go up to about $1,300 with all the features. If you want Leupold’s flagship scope, the VX-6 is for you!
