The New Leupold VX R Patrol Illuminated Riflescope

The New Leupold VX R Patrol Illuminated Riflescope

Leupold VX-R Patrol Illuminated RiflescopeThe new Leupold VX R Patrol Illuminated Riflescope features proprietary powered fiber optic technology in an exclusive FireDot reticle to provide law enforcement, military and other tactical shooters with target acquisition, in the bright light of day as well as the low light of dawn or dusk.

The VX-R Patrol is available in a 1.25-4x20mm model with the FireDot Special Purpose Reticle (SPR) and a 3-9x40mm model with the FireDot Tactical Milling Reticle (TMR).

The VX-R Patrol has a single push button illumination system with Leupold's own Motion Sensor Technology (MST).  A touch of the button illuminates the dot within the reticle.  By repeatedly pressing the button, the user can select between eight different intensity settings including a high-low indicator, which flashes when either the maximum or minimum intensity is reached.  After five minutes of inactivity, the illumination system automatically switches to stand-by mode, but reactivates at the same intensity setting whenever the rifle is moved.

In addition, the FireDot reticle in the VX-R Patrol has a fiber optic light pipe with a precisely cut and meticulously polished tip designed to deliver an illuminated dot that can be easily seen in bright light, yet is not overpowering in low-light conditions.  Once activated, the dot illuminates with bright, sharp definition, while the rest of the reticle remains non-illuminated.  This combination leads the eye naturally to the center aiming point and makes target acquisition quick, precise and simple.


The FireDot SPR is designed for instinctive, close-range/low-magnification situations, yet   allows shooters to engage targets with greater precision at longer ranges than generally possible with other reticle styles.  Expanding on existing Mil Dot reticles, the FireDot TMR offers increased ranging precision and accuracy.


The VX-R Patrol is backed by Leupold's Full Lifetime Guarantee. For more information visit a local dealer, go to www.leupold.com.

Guns & Ammo TV: 6.5 Creedmoor vs. .375 H&H

The 6.5 Creedmoor and the .375 H&H are almost complete opposites, or are they? The 6.5 Creedmoor is a newer and popular cartridge that transcends long-range precision rifle shooting and hunting big game. The .375 H&H is more than a century old, but still a popular and versatile choice for hunting big and dangerous game. For this shoot, Pro Tom Beckstrand, former U.S. Army Special Operations officer and sniper team leader, faces off against Guns & Ammo TV cameraman Ben LaLonde in a challenge that highlights the differences between these two cartridges.
