posted on August 19, 2018

Leupold has a long tradition of providing American-made optics to the U.S. military and consumer market, and its catalog spans from truly state-of-the-art, mission-driven riflescopes to tried-and-true configurations that have been favored by sportsmen for decades. New for 2018, the VX-Freedom series of scopes updates the long-trusted configurations previously maintained in the VX-1 and VX-2 lines, and offers them at very accessible price points. The VX-Freedom family includes a wide range of popular riflescope designs, and also includes some purpose-build optics for muzzleloaders, AR-style rifles and rimfire-cartridge guns. This week, Joe Kurtenbach takes a closer look at Leupold’s VX-Freedom Rimfire 3-9X 40 mm scope.
