Product Information

The VX®-6HD 2-12x42mm riflescope takes versatility to the next level. It offers an incredibly wide field of view, while giving you the magnification needed for mid to long-range shots. Its rugged, lightweight body has made it a favorite for any hunter not willing to sacrifice performance or weight. We built it for anything and everything, including your next epic adventure.

Built around Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, the 2-12 offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions. Its industry leading glare reduction provides a clear image in harsh, direct light, while the resolution and clarity will meet the demands of any professional guide or shooter in the field. The wide zoom range combined with an in-scope electronic reticle level, CDS-ZL2 ZeroLock® elevation dial, and removable throw lever, make the VX-6HD the most versatile Leupold® riflescope ever made.

The VX-6HD goes where other scopes can't. Its unique combination of features, durability, and professional-grade optical performance guarantees that it can handle any challenge you throw at it. It's 100% waterproof and fogproof, and like all Leupold riflescopes, it's designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed to perform for life.

  • 6:1 ZOOM RATIO: A versatile 6:1 zoom ratio gives you 6 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 6x: 1-6, 2-12, 3-18, 4-24, etc.), so you can dial your power way down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots. The larger the zoom ratio, the more versatile one scope can be.
  • PROFESSIONAL-GRADE OPTICAL SYSTEM: Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions, industry-leading glare reduction for a clear image in harsh, direct light, and the resolution and clarity that professional guides and shooters demand in the field.
  • CUSTOM DIAL SYSTEM: Leupold's Custom Dial System® (CDS®) gives you the ability to customize your turret (adjustment dial) to your exact ballistics and environmental conditions. Once your new custom dial is installed, simply range the target, turn the dial to that number, and aim dead on.
  • CDS-ZL2 ELEVATION DIAL: The CDS-ZL2 (ZeroLock 2) provides two revolutions of elevation adjustment while eliminating accidental dial movement with the push-button ZeroLock system. It also features Leupold's award-winning Custom Dial System® (CDS®), which allows shooters to order a laser-marked bullet-drop dial to match their exact ballistics and conditions.
  • SECOND FOCAL PLANE: In Second Focal Plane (rear focal plane) scopes, the reticle stays the same size while the target grows and shrinks when you adjust the magnification. These reticles are ideal for lowlight hunting situations and in scopes that don't utilize hash marks for range estimation.
  • ZERO LOCK DIAL: The ZeroLock® system eliminates accidental dial movement by locking it in place.
  • ZERO STOP: The ZeroStop system creates a backstop when returning the dial back to zero, so you don't accidently turn the dial a full revolution in the wrong direction.
  • GUARD-ION: Guard-ion is a hydrophobic lens coating that sheds dirt and water for a maintenance-free, clear, crisp image.
  • ELECTRONIC RETICLE LEVEL: The Electronic Reticle will flash when the scope isn't level, promoting more accurate long-range shots. It can also simplify the mounting process.
  • ILLUMINATED: This scopes comes with an illuminated reticle, which can help you get on target faster in low-light situations.
  • MOTION SENSOR TECHNOLOGY (MST): Motion Sensor Technology (MST™) extends battery life by automatically deactivating illuminated reticles after five minutes of inactivity and then reactivates instantly as soon as movement is detected.
  • ALUMINA® FLIPBACK LENS COVERS INCLUDED: Our high-quality Alumina® flip-back lens covers thread onto the scope to protect the lens from moisture, dirt, and debris.
  • REVERSIBLE THROW LEVER: This reversible throw lever easily clamps onto specific power-selector rings. Its large surface area makes it ideal for quick magnification changes.
  • WATERPROOF, FOGPROOF, & SHOCKPROOF: Leupold pioneered modern waterproof and fogproof technology using advanced internal gasses and sealing methods that withstand extreme temperatures, elevation changes, and shocks, so the internals of the optics stay moisture free and crystal clear for life.
