I changed out scopes on 3 rifles topping 2 of them with the VX5HD 3-15x44 and one with the VX6HD 3-18x50. The illuminated red dot is one of the finest, sharpest I've seen. With the many choices available for my old eyes, it's nice to see that Leupold has this very excellent optic at a reasonable price range. It allows me and my wife to keep hunting while we're still able to get out into the field. We look forward to supplement our table fare with with wild game every year.
