Everything I was looking for and more...I bought this scope last summer to upgrade my rifle for an elk hunt. I shoot a custom Weatherby in 300 WBY Magnum and I wanted to upgrade the scope because of the shooting distances of 400 yards plus that I anticipated for this hunt. This Leupold was also my first 30mm scope - it will not be my last. The scope was the easiest scope I have ever sighted in. Side focus feature - how did I ever live without this feature before?? The sunshade option is a natural for this scope - looks great too. I sighted the rifle in for 200 yards and ordered my CDS Dial, which arrived in 4 weeks. In the six days of my hunt, I had only one shot opportunity and my VX-3i 4.5-14x40 helped me make the shot, harvest my 1st Elk, and fill my freezer.

Purchased two of these, and VERY impressedI purchased on the the VX-3i 4.5-14x40 30mm SF CDS when they first launched; I had intended to put it atop a suppressed Ruger 77/357. When I first got the rig out to shoot, I was very impressed with the optical quality, as well as the repeatable tracking in elevation adjustment.
I was so impressed, I picked up another one last week to top a new .22 Mag build. By all accounts, it appears to be identical to my first run VX-3i scope, so it looks like Leupold has solid consistency in production.

Uncle Alpine from
Saved Weight & Didn't Loose PerformanceI bought this scope about a month ago to get ready for the season after I realized that my rifle was entirely too heavy. This scope was 5 ounces lighter than the previous one coupled with a set of Talley rings it saved almost a half pound. Set this up on a 280 Ackley Improved that shoots 160 gr bullets. Great performance just dial the CDS for
distance and drop the cross hairs on the target - this scope is excellent. I was worried that the 40mm objective would not gather light, but after using the scope in morning and evening conditions the scope is incredibly bright and easy to see through. Its light collecting properties are excellent and visibility is good even for my 58 year old eyes! This my first Leupold scope - I'm thinking of getting another one for another rifle.

Great clarity!A friend and I each bought 4.5-14x40mm VX-3i's this spring. I chose the 30mm side focus, while he went with the standard 1 inch tube. We were both very impressed with the quality of the optics, as the clarity and light transmission was excellent. We also noticed that there was next to no glare and wash-out in the bright sun. I would highly recommend these scopes to anyone looking for a moderately priced, but high performing, rifle scope.
