Leupold Mark 5HD Riflescopes

All Leupold Mark 5HD scopes offer absolute waterproof and fogproof integrity.

Leupold Mark 5HD Riflescopes

Some of the real attention-getters from Leupold are the new Mark 5HD riflescopes for long-range shooting. These scopes are packed with key features.

These scopes are lighter weight (up to 20 ounces lighter than other brands) and brighter than other riflescopes in the class. They have fat 35mm tubes, fast-focus eyepieces, and a zoom ratio of 5:1. Three power ranges are offered: 3.6-18X 44mm (pictured), 5-25X 56mm, and 7-35X 56mm.

The scopes’ lenses are coated with DiamondCoat 2, an “ion-assisted” coating that’s designed for better abrasion resistance and higher light transmission that provides improved brightness, clarity, and contrast. The scopes also feature enhanced ergonomics with more tactile, audible click adjustments; larger numbers; and “high-speed” throw levers.

The scopes have turret-mounted side-focus parallax adjustments and flip-open lens covers. All Mark 5HD scopes offer, according to Leupold, “absolute waterproof and fogproof integrity.” They, like all Leupold scopes, are designed to survive 5,000 impacts on Leupold’s recoil-simulation machine, and each impact force is three times the recoil of a .308 Winchester rifle. These scopes are perfect for hunting and tactical use.


The 3.6-18X 44mm MOA scope (MSRP: $1,799.99) features Leupold’s PR-1MOA reticle located in the front focal plane. The scope also is offered with the PR-1MOA Illuminated reticle and the Impact-60 reticle at extra cost. The scope is 12.06 inches long, weighs 26 ounces, and wears a matte black finish. Eye relief is from 3.5 inches to 3.8 inches, exit pupil is 2.4mm, and field of view ranges from 28.4 feet (3.6X) to 5.8 feet (18X) at 100 yards. This model has 100 MOA of elevation adjustment (that’s three full revolutions of the turret), 80 MOA of windage adjustment, a revolution indicator, and a push-button zero lock.


MSRP: $1,799.99 to $2,989.99; leupold.com.
