Leupold can be counted on to supply quality riflescopes at every price point, and such is the case with 2018’s VX-Freedom line. Freedom scopes inherit the firm’s high-performing Twilight Management System, which combines various lens coatings and design elements to maximize low-light imaging and limit distracting glare. Though MSRPs run from $235 to $390, Freedom models are subjected to the same endurance standards and testing that have long made ruggedness a Leupold hallmark, including abrasion-resistant top coatings on the lenses. The new series includes popular options in zoom range and reticles, and, like so many Gold Ring scopes before, Freedom scopes prove a prepared rifleman can meet just about any marksmanship challenge with a 1", second-focal-plane optic. leupold.com
