LEUPOLD® VX®-I BALLISTIC AIMING SYSTEM™ RETICLES L eupold made history when it introduced the hugely popular Ballistic Aiming System™ in its VX®-III riflescopes. New only last year, VX-I users have benefitted from this same long range accuracy technology! Selected VX-I models now feature a modified version of our Ballistic Aiming System Boone & Crockett™ Big Game reticle, giving you proper hold-over points for your rifle’s ballistic profile, allowing you to consistently make accurate, ethical long range shots. Plus, you get all the optical advantages the VX-I has to offer, including our standard multicoat lens system for enhanced clarity, contrast and a bright sight picture in all conditions, and micro-friction windage and elevation dials marked in ¼- MOA increments for precise adjustments. Finally, each VX-I is incredibly accurate, absolutely rugged and waterproof, and covered by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee. The addition of the Ballistic Aiming System makes it an even more valuable tool for any hunter.
