Leupold Announces New VX-4.5HD Service Rifle Optic

Leupold Announces New VX-4.5HD Service Rifle Optic
Leupold's New 1-4.5x24 VX-4.5HD Service Rifle Optic

Featuring a 30mm maintube and 1-4.5 magnification, the VX-4.5HD was built to provide fit within the strict standards that High Power Service Rifle competitions place on the use of optical sights.

"When the Highpower Service Rifle competitions announced that they'd be allowing the use of riflescopes with a 4.5 magnification maximum consumers immediately turned to us for a solution. The VX-4.5HD delivers everything a Service Rifle competitor could want out of their optic, and is available with reticles that have been built to drive winning scores." - Vici Peters, product line manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.

Those reticles are the Bull-Ring Post and the FireDot Bull-Ring, which is illuminated. Both have been designed to serve the needs of Service Rifle shooters at 4.5 power, the Bull-Ring will nearly be identical in size to the target's bullseye. As the magnification is turned down, the white ring around the bullseye can be adjusted to help perfectly center your aim. The illumination setting on the FireDot Bull-Ring features MST (Motion Sensor Technology) that automatically deactivates the illumination after five minutes of inactivity, and reactivates it instantly, as soon as movement is detected.

The VX-4.5HD's Guard-Ion rain shedding coating is scratch resistant, and meant to ensure that water, dirt, and fingerprints don't ruin your score. It also features Leupold's proprietary Twilight Max HD Light Management System, which combines light transmission and glare management to provide vivid, bright, high-contrast images that will deliver relentless optical performance in low-light conditions. It also eliminates the washed-out image that can come from direct sunlight. The VX-4.5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States and backed by Leupold's Full Lifetime Guarantee.
