There isn’t an optics company more American than Leupold. Leupold has been manufacturing USA-made scopes since the 1940s, and its products are trusted by military, law enforcement, shooting competitors, and hunters.
Though shooting competitors have been using Leupold scopes for decades, the company decided to dive deeper into the precision rifle arena by releasing the Mark 5HD 7-35×56 scope. With its huge magnification range, this scope solves the problem of never having enough magnification when you really need it for those tiny targets. Similar to its Mark 5HD brethren, the 7-35×56 is lighter than similarly spec’d scopes, features clearer glass, and has improved ergonomics.
“I have used the Leupold Mark 5HD 7-35×56 during precision rifle matches and while hunting,” said Candice Horner, a former USA staff member and competitive shooter. “The scope’s durability and design make it a great addition to any bolt gun.”
The Leupold 5HD 7-35×56 is a first focal plane scope with a 35mm main tube that allows for 100 MOA of elevation and 50 MOA of windage adjustments. An adjustable parallax knob gives you an extremely crisp view from 30 yards to infinity. The Leupold ZeroLock dial provides tactile clicks that are easy to confirm by feel and also hard locks into the zero position.
We tested the scope at various distances between 30 and 1,200 yards and had no problems making hits. This scope is definitely a winning combination for your precision rifle.
