Leupold Crossbones Scopes
A new scope designed specifically for crossbow hunting. Features Leupold Quantum Optical System with lead-free glass and Multicoat 4 lens coatings. Also features a unique Crossbones Ballistic Reticle, matched with velocity/power selector on the scope.
Quantum Optical System
Leupold mechanical and optical scientists, mechanical engineers and product line managers have dedicated their design efforts over the last year to developing the optical system for Leupold's newest generation of riflescopes, including the VX-1, VX-2, VX-R and VX-6. The Quantum Optical System is a leap forward and provides a new level of optical performance for hunters and shooters. Using the rugged foundation of the legendary Vari-X series and employing start-of-the-art optical and mechanical design software and manufacturing processes, this system delivers new levels of performance in every optical category. Lead free, ecologically friendly glass compositions are used throughout - the geometry of each lens is maximized through a combination of Ze-max design software and evaluation using Leupold's Zygo Interferometer to minimize wave front error and increase resolution. The result is razor sharp imaging across the typical light conditions experienced on any hunt - from the bright daylight of varminting to the dawn and dusk hours when big whitetails are on the move. By repositioning optical elements, employing new coatings and importantly, leaving key, time-tested mechanical aspects of the Vari-X system untouched, significant performance gains have been achieved in many other areas as well. The Quantum Optical System has greatly enhanced light transmission (up to 92% in the VX-1 system and 94% in the VX-2 system), resolution and color fidelity - all while preserving the ease of use and nearly indestructible ruggedness that has been a hallmark of Leupold riflescopes for generations.
Leupold optics offer better optical clarity as a result of lead-free glass lenses. In addition to its superior optics, the lenses are produced with none of the environmentally damaging by-products common to standard glass production. A small step, but one in the right direction.
The generous eyebox makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots you'll appreciate the flexibility it affords, and in close up big game or dangerous game situations the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. At high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible head position latitude and an improved sight picture that fills the eyepiece completely - putting you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.

BAS (Ballistic Aiming System)
Leupold's Ballistics Aiming System is comprised of five specialized reticles - Boone and Crockett Big Game, Varmint Hunter's, LR Duplex, LRV Duplex and the new S.A.B.R. reticles - which take into account the variable crucial to accurate, long-range shooting. A special ballistics indicator ring allows users to customize their power settings for their cartridge's ballistics, then saves that setting for easy reference in a hunting situation.
