Most Helpful Positive Review not cheap but worth it
Low mount makes eye relief a dream. I never think any scope is easy to set up, hence the 4 in that category. I have it on a Tikka T3 stainless 7mm-08....

Good but not great

by ericcatec, from United States, CA Written on July 31, 2014
I was looking forward to this scope for the unique feature that allows it to sit lower on the scope with a greater objective diameter. Unfortunately, when I compared it to my Zeiss with a 40mm obj., it didn't look as bright and the Zeiss was a little less in cost and weight. I made my comparisons at the same powers and in low light dusk conditions. Another issue I had was with the Boone&Crockett reticle. The Reticle stays the same size as you vary the power. Instructions say to set your power to match your bullet characteristics, thereby setting your drop. I can't guarantee that I will have the right power setting in the field so this increases the chance for error....
Pros:
  • Low profile, low center of gravity
Cons:
  • Good but not great optics quality
  • No consistant MOA
Would recommend: Yes

Getting the jump on the Bull Elk

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on July 20, 2013
The new low profile design allows me to mount the scope using lower base on my higher cal. rifle. Also optics are great for getting out before the game starts to move.
Pros: Optics and mounting
Cons: Nothing significant...
Would recommend: Yes

Illuminated Boone and Crocket

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 9, 2012
Great scope with clear optics. I really like the illumination in the early morning and late evening. Only downside is that because of the notch you have to order the lens covers from Leupold and they are not inexpensive....

Leupold VX-3L 4.5-14x50mm (30mm) Matte Rifle Scope Illum.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on September 25, 2010
This is an excellent scope, but two things ruined my enjoyment:

1) Paid almost $1000 and battery not included? wth.

2) Scope has trash inside it floating on the interior. Looks like a small worm just floating in space there in the middle of the scope. This is quality control? Mailing scope to Leupold tomorrow to try out this Life time Warranty.
Pros: Excellent scope
Cons: Arrived without battery & defective optics...
Would recommend: Yes

not cheap but worth it

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OR Written on January 31, 2010
Low mount makes eye relief a dream. I never think any scope is easy to set up, hence the 4 in that category. I have it on a Tikka T3 stainless 7mm-08. Reticle illumination is from off to eye searing bright. Get the Boone & Crockett for distance shooting. Leupold is superb!
Pros: B&C reticle makes long shots easy
Cons: wish they offered stainless to match my rifle...
Would recommend: Yes
