These scopes feature the Leupold Custom Dial System™ (CDS), the first and only custom bullet-drop compensation dial system. The CDS has all the precision and reliability competition shooters require, with reduced bulk and easy handling for the field. Just adjust the turrets for the desired range and squeeze the trigger – it's that easy. Additional turrets for calibers not similar to .270 Win. ballistics are available from Leupold. Xtended Twilight™ lens technology targets and amplifies the light wavelengths most commonly found in near-dark conditions. VX-3 scopes have a wide field of view, lockable fast-focus eyepieces with noncritical eye relief and rugged construction for long-term reliability. Their precisely machined housing and components are precision-fitted for rock-solid structural integrity. All are charged with second generation argon/krypton gas for complete waterproof reliability and thermal shock immunity that's guaranteed for life. Edge-blackened lenses improve resolution and contrast by cutting diffusion and reducing glare. Abrasion-resistant Diamondcoat 2™ external lens coating provides long-lasting clarity and greater light transmission. Precision twin-spring erector with cryogenically treated adjustments for pinpoint long-distance accuracy. A member of the Leupold Golden Ring family, it's factory tested for a lifetime of dependability. The dedication to excellence in both optics and construction makes the VX-3 CDS perfect for everything from close encounters with big game to long-range competitive target shooting. 1/4-MOA windage and elevation adjustments.To take full advantage of the CDS System, contact the Leupold custom shop after your purchase (800) LEUPOLD, and provide the technicians with the ballistics of the load you shoot. The more accurate the information you provide, the more accurate the dial will be. Bullet weight, ballistic coefficient, muzzle velocity, elevation/temperature of your hunting grounds—all this information can be utilized to provide pinpoint accuracy. Even if you only have your factory ammunition box, the Leupold Custom Shop can create an exquisitely accurate CDS dial that will provide the accuracy needed for first shot stops at extended range.
