Leupold 8.5x25x40 focus

Post by thauglor »

Can ayone that has one tell me what is the minimum focus distance at 25x power? I think these are the vari-x III, not sure they made a VX-3 in such a power. And this is for the 40mm AO version, unfortunately Leupold doesn't list such data on their site

I am looking to see if it will fit my air rifle or not.

Thanks!

I don't have a direct answer for you about the scope you're asking about, but I do want to mention that I have successfully adjusted the AO's on both an "M8" fixed 24X to focus at 20-45 yards as well as a Vari-X III from 25 yards to 100 meters. (Even though 100m is just slightly soft I'm willing to give that up to be 100% clear at 25 yards.)

If you find you want to change the focus on a scope let me know.
