    New products will be officially announced at SHOT Show. No target scopes are slated to be released at this time.

    https://www.leupold.com/vx-3hd-6-5-2...us-fine-duplex Was 'released' mid-2021, but has not started shipping yet.

    I was currious about this myself. There has been talk on at least one of the Smallbore Silhouette FB groups about a new Leupold scope.

    I was going to buy a VX-3I 6.5-20X40 EFR CDS TARGET FINE DUPLEX scope this year for my rimfire Silhouette rifle, but I see it has been discontinued.

    The scope link by Korth would be fine for High Power Silhouette shooting, but not for rimfire as the Minimum parallax free distance is listed as 75yards. Can the parallax be reset at the Korth facility in Okotoks?

    if you could do that at your shop before the scope goes out I would buy the new focus FIXED scope for my needs at one of your retailers for the advertised price of 999,plus tax

    fair enough?

    We can re-set parallax to as close as 10 yards. However, most all Adjustable Objective/Side Focus scopes (expect for EFR scopes) are set to be parallax free at infinity, which allows for parallax adjustment down to around 50 yards (+/-). The simple answer is we may not be able to make this scope work for rimfire. The long answer is we may be able to make this scope work for rimfire; if we had the scope in our lab, we could run a few tests to see what is possible.

    We can complete custom work prior to a scope shipping to your dealer. However, retail pricing will need to be discussed with the dealer.

    Thanks for the answer regarding re-setting parallax. I will have to think on this. For rimfire silhouette we shoot from 40m-100m. I guess if the parallax cannot be made suitable for that range, I could have it set back to factory specs and use the scope on a centerfire rifle.

    Precisely. We can function test the parallax before sending your scope to you. If the parallax change is ineffective, there will be no charge for the work (only freight to and from).

    a friend spoke to Leupold at SHOT show today and checked out the new VX-3HD 6.5-20x40. Great looking scope and will be available with the EFR reticle and the new 1/2 min target diamond! I was informed that they would be available by the end of the month! Now I know there will be skeptics with regards to availability but it's important to recognize that they are listening to silhouette shooters and trying to provide them with scopes that will be great for silhouette!


    any word on this later this or next week, would like to buy one for this years silhouette program

    ANY SHOT SHOW SPECIALS TO THE SILHOUETTE CROWD
    and not just asking for a friend

    thanks whenever is fine we k ow you are busy busy
