Jason Doyle reviews the Leupold VX-5HD 3-15×56 hunting scope
Jason Doyle has been using a Leupold VX-5 hunting scope for two years, so he’s had plenty of time to give it a really thorough test – and he loves it.

Jason Doyle has been using this Leupold VX-5 scope for two years, so he’s had plenty of time to give it a really thorough test – and he loves it.

“Every now and then something comes along that suits you down to the ground. The VX-5 does everything I want my scope to do, and does it very well,” he says.

“It’s probably the simplest turret set-up of any scope I’ve had. You just need an allen key to take the turret off, set your rifle and the turret goes straight back on. There’s no faffing around with dials and screws.”

The turret on Jason’s scope is calibrated in minutes of angle, but for no extra charge you can send Leupold your ballistic data and they will make a custom turret for you. “I haven’t bothered with that because I use my scope on so many different rifles, but for someone with one rifle it would be really useful.”

VX-5HD-3-15x56-CDS-ZL2-Illum-1
Jason finds the 3-15 magnification range ideal, suitable for open ground on the hill as well as closer shots in woodland. He’s impressed by the quality of the optics too. “This scope punches well above its weight for this price point, and rivals any of the European brands. It has a really good field of view which is important for something like hind culling where you’re trying to shoot multiple animals on the hill.”

“The VX-5 is also low profile, lightweight… it just ticks all the boxes for me.”

Leupold’s VX-5HD 3-15×56 scope has taken optical performance to a new level. It’s high-definition performance which focus on clarity and crispness in its imagery paired with its Twilight Max HD Light Management System and state-of-the-art MST provides fantastic low-light operation giving hunters an advantage during harsh lighting. The VX-5HD 3-15×56 riflescope has everything you need and nothing you don’t.

VX-5HD-3-15x56-CDS-ZL2-Illum.-2
This scope has the ability to dominate all landscapes from open plains to mountains and even closer shots in woodland. It maximises as much exit pupil light it possibly can and is as flexible as the 44mm version, but with 56mm objective bell.

These optics are some of the best on offer, with great field of view shooters and its low profile the VX-5HD is the scope that will never let you down and amplify your success in the field.

Some of its impressive features include:

High-Definition Performance
  • Colour, clarity, crispness, and image quality is what makes this scope high-definition in its performance. Leupold’s high-definition lenses are unparalleled in its quality and accuracy while also providing top-notch images that stretch your full field of view.
Guard-ion Lens Coating
  • Keeping the lens clear with the newest technology is one of the factors that makes this scope superior. With the use of hydrophobic lens coating the annoyance of dirt and water blocking your vision is not a problem. Guar-ion lens coating allows for a maintenance-free, clear, crisp and ready-for-action imagery.
Motion Sensor Technology (MST)
  • Modern Motion Sensor Technology (MST) integrated into the scope extends battery life through its automation of illuminated reticles. When there is motion detected the illuminated reticles are instantly active, and after 5 minutes of inactivity they are shut off.
CDS-ZL2 Elevation Dial
  • With the addition of the CDS-ZL2 Elevation Dial, otherwise referred to as the ZeroLock 2, accidental dial movement is eliminated. Instead, the ZeroLock system provides two revolutions of elevation adjustment. Featuring Leupold’s award-winning Custom Dial System (CDS) shooters can order a laser-marked bullet-drop dial to their specific and exact ballistics and conditions.
Lightweight, Rugged Performance
  • With ultra-lightweight construction and design of the scope, recoil energy is dispersed providing shooters a scope that is unmatched in performance.
5:1 Zoom Ratio
  • The larger the zoom ratio, the more versatile the scope. Adjust your magnification with a versatile 5:1 zoom ratio giving you 5 times more high-power magnification. This zoom ratio gives you the perfect balance between magnification and field of view for all situations.
Professional-Grade Optical System
  • This light system outperforms in the most challenging lighting conditions utilising state of the art glare reduction technology to combat harsh and direct light. The optical system on the VX-5HD 3-15×56 scope provides the clarity and resolution that professional guides and shooters have been asking for.

This scope has also integrated a side focus for easy access, flexibility, and accuracy in imagery. With its waterproof and fog proof attributes, along with being impact and extreme climate tested & verified, you can’t go wrong with the scope that has it all.

RRP for the Leupold VX-5HD 3-15×56 is £1,620.
