The VX3 LR scopes are "the best" scopes for the money. I replace the elevation turret with a Kenton Industries 3 Tier MOA turret and am perfectly happy with them. And yes I do own other scopes - NF.

Re: Leupold VX-3 8.5-25x50 scope opinions?

I agree that the VX3 is just OK - I have a 3.5-10x40. I have other scopes too and older Leupolds (VXII) that had better glass.

Dig, the VXIII and VX3 are not the same, although the one replaced the other. I had better glass in the older model that I have.

Not knocking them as I own five Leupolds, just saying. My VX3 is very much at home on a lightweight 308 and tracking seems good. It's light and trim for the magnification, but clarity is lacking.

Leupold has awesome customer service - that I will second.
