Leupold Introduces Optical Ideas for More Successful Hunting

BEAVERTON, Ore. – As hunting seasons approach around the country, Leupold® offers the following ideas for using optics technology to achieve more success afield.

Customize. Riflescopes can be customized more than ever to suit individual preferences and specific hunting conditions. For example, Leupold offers a Custom Dial System® (CDS®) feature for its VX®-3 riflescopes. CDS helps hunters and shooters get on target at any range, with any load, by matching their scopes to the ballistics of their ammunition. For additional information, go to www.leupold.com/VX-3CDS.

Accurize. Advancements in optics technology help hunters shoot with great accuracy. Recent examples include the True Ballistic Range® (TBR®) feature in selected models of Leupold’s RX® and Vendetta™ rangefinders. TBR automatically calculates the shot angle and provides the incline-adjusted distance to the target, rather than the straight-line distance. Another example: range-estimating riflescope reticles for specific types of hunting, such as Leupold’s Boone and Crockett® Big Game Reticle and Varmint Hunter’s Reticle.

Accessorize. Various accessories are now available to enhance riflescope performance. Case in point: Leupold’s Alumina® thread-on accessories, which help hunters use the available light to their advantage. With the Alumina system, a riflescope can be adapted to various light conditions, enhancing the visibility of game animals.

Illuminate. It’s no secret that some of the best hunting often occurs in the low light of early morning or late evening. To help hunters take full advantage of “prime time,” modern riflescopes come with upgraded features such as premium lens coatings and illuminated reticles. Recent innovations include Leupold’s Xtended Twilight Lens System™ and Third Generation Illumination.
