Leupold Mark 5HD Specs:

Below is a quick overview of the most pertinent specs for Leupold Mark 5HD: magnification: 5x - 25x Objective Lense Diameter: 56mm Weight: 30oz Length 15. 67 Eye Relief: 3. 58 - 3. 82 Adjustments: 0. 1 Mil / 0. 25 MOA Scope Body Diameter: 35mm Total Elevation Adjustment: 120 MOA Total Windage Adjustment: 60 MOA Focal Plane: First, for the most part, specs are right on track with what precision rifle shooters are looking for; plenty of Elevation Adjustment, reasonably light weight, reticle and turrets that agree, and so on. There is point of confusion for me, however, and that is Scope Body Diameter. For a number of years, standard Scope body diameters were 1 inch, 30mm, and 34mm. There was a period where few scope makers built 35mm scopes, and some oddballs that were even 40mm, but that has mostly gone away in favor of 34mm body for most long - range precision scopes. Even number of low power variable scopes are built with a 34mm body. I am sure there is a good reason for it, but I ca figure out why Leupold decided to go with 35mm Scope Body. It seems a bit odd, and is certainly inconvenient to have to buy a pair of rings specifically for Mark 5 that probably wo fit any of your future scopes.

The name Leupold, or more officially, Leupold & Stevens, Inc., Has been around for over 100 years, having been started by two German immigrants looking for a fresh start in the USA; However, it wasnt until soon after the end of World War II that Leupold began building riflescopes when Marcus Leupold was on hunt where his scope fog up causing him to miss deer, he decide he could build better scope and since that time Leupold has steadily grow in sport optics industry to being one of most well - know names in marketplace today. A few years ago, Leupold introduced Mark 6 and Mark 8 lines of Tactical scopes with Mark 8 representing the pinnacle of Leupolds optical / mechanical quality, while Mark 6 3 - 1844 represents one of the lightest and shortest FFP scopes within its magnification range; however, high cost of entry for these scopes as well as some initial tracking and turret issues keep them out of many shooters hands, and for all their innovation they never really catch on in civilian marketplace. For that reason, some have speculated Leupold engineers will go to work on model that would bridge the gap to Mark 6 / 8 and be able to introduce them at a more consumer - friendly price point, which bring US to Mark 5HD introduced at SHOT Show 2018. With two models, standard 5 - 2556 and Ultra Short 3. 6 - 1844 Leupold hopes to regain some ground it has lost over the past few years as the industry has been changing quickly to accommodate the rise of long - range shooting sports. While there is a plethora of 5 - 25 and similar magnification scopes available from multiple manufacturers today, Leupold is one of the lightest and comes at a price point below most alpha class scopes if you do not require illumination. That being say, scope that intrigued me most was 3. 6 - 1844 offering, especially since short and light scopes have always had appeal for me. Coming in at an MSRP starting at $2399. 99 and street price around $1800 this model is certainly not cheap; however, it is not easy to manufacturer Ultra Short designs and most of Mark 5 Shortys competition come in at a stiff price point of $3 000 +! Coming in at almost half the price of competition while being one of the shortest and lightest scopes in its class, this scope has potential to find its way on many rifles, big question is how well it will perform optically and mechanically. Please understand this is a subjective review as anything that involves the human eye as an instrument for measurement should be classified as subjective.

Magnification:

According to bull's - eye, Leupold Mark 5HD 5 - 25x56 rifle scope is capable of getting you within 10 rings no matter the distance - if you have the right equipment. This scope is a serious buy for serious shooters. While the Mark 5HD line may not top the Mark 6 or Mark 8 series, it's welcome option for those of us who want a premium without spending over $3000. We even name it as one of the best FFP scopes in 2019. We won't judge you if more than $2000 is still a luxury buy that you won't ever be able to bring yourself to spend on scope. Just owning Leupold gives you instant bragging rights. If you re Hunter, consider Leupold VX - 3i rifle scope if you re on budget but you want something dependable. But, if tactical or competition use is the aim of the game, NightForce NXS 5. 5 - 22x56 is an excellent buy. It's still expensive, but at least you 'll see some savings over Leupold. Nightforce Optics know tacticals like the back of their hand - you won't regret your buy! Leupold brought in Mark 5HD to help level ground between Mark 6 and 8 and Mark 4s. It's class of its own, and it's worth every penny if you dare to spend it. You might want permission slip first from your better half if you intend on spending big bucks!
