We are happy to announce another premier sponsor for the upcoming Gun Blogger Rendezvous. Leupold & Stevens will be donating one of their top of the line VX-3 scopes with the Custom Dial System! Check out the specs below:
BEAVERTON, Ore. “ To help hunters get on target at any range with any load, Leupold® offers the Custom Dial System® (CDS) feature for VX-3® riflescopes. The CDS allows shooters to match their scopes with the ballistics of their ammunition.
With the purchase of any CDS model VX-3 riflescope, shooters receive two customized, ballistically matched adjustment dials at no extra cost. This is a special offer that ends December 31, 2010. Send Leupold the ballistics data and shipping information, and the company provides two dials custom built to match the specified calibers, bullet weights and loads.
Leupold® has launched a microsite to educate hunters and shooters about the Custom Dial System® (CDS) feature for VX-3® riflescopes, and highlight a limited-time offer.
The microsite is located at www.leupold.com/VX-3CDS. CDS helps hunters and shooters get on target at any range, with any load, by matching their scopes to the ballistics of their ammunition. With the purchase of any VX-3 CDS riflescope, shooters receive two customized, ballistically-matched adjustment dials ($100 retail value) at no extra cost. This is a special offer that ends December 31, 2010.
Visitors to the VX-3 CDS microsite will find an educational video and graphics, an overview of how the system works and its advantages, and more details on the offer.
The CDS is available on the following riflescope models: VX-3 3.5-10x40mm, VX-3 3.5-10x50mm, VX-3 4.5-14x40mm, VX-3L 3.5-10x50mm and VX-3L 4.5-14x50mm.

CDS dials change out easily, allowing shooters to quickly adjust to different loadings. With precision ¼-MOA click increment finger adjustments, and no adjustment covers to lose, the CDS makes VX-3 riflescopes even more accurate and rugged.
Other key features:
· Custom calibrated turrets allow hunters to quickly dial in elevation for first shot hits. No more need to tape ballistics tables to the rifle stock, and no more missing out on a trophy due to mistaken holdovers or miscounted clicks.
· Dials can be quickly changed out by loosening set screws. Shooters can match their dials to the specifics of their ammunition. For example, a .30-06 can have a calibrated dial for a 150-grain mule deer load and another for a 200-grain elk load.
· Unlike most bullet drop compensating turrets, which are only available in the most popular calibers and bullet weights, the Leupold CDS allows shooters to obtain dials calibrated to whatever caliber, bullet weight, or charge they desire. It doesn™t matter if it™s a .222 Remington or a .444 Marlin, the CDS is set to the specific ballistics.
· Leupold CDS riflescopes are ideal for handloaders who demand the ultimate performance from their rifle and ammunition. Each dial is calibrated based on shooter-provided ballistics data, allowing users to set their scope to the load a particular rifle likes the best.
Many bullet drop-style scopes come in œranges� with multiple turrets that may or may not match the specific loading. With the CDS, shooters have only the dials they need, without unneeded extras to loose or store.
Leupold matches the CDS to exact data for the utmost in accuracy. Other bullet drop turret scopes are approximate to a generic factory load, such as a 68 grain .223 Remington. The VX-3 CDS, however, is calibrated to the unique ballistics data of that bullet fired out of a 16� barrel as compared to one fired from a 22� barrel.
The CDS is available on the:
