We got our first look at Leupold’s new BX-4 Range HD rangefinding binoculars at SHOT earlier this year. They were announced just before we all headed to Las Vegas. Now they’re finally here and hitting stores.
We got a pair in JWT’s hands for a full review and we hear he’ll be taking them with him on an upcoming Africa hunt, so stay tuned. In the mean time, here’s the heads up that the BX-4 Range HD TBR/Ws are hitting stores now . . .
Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear sport optics, is pleased to announce that the BX-4 Range HD TBR/W rangefinding binocular is now available.
When speed is paramount, there’s no substitute for a rangefinding binocular. The BX-4 Range HD TBR/W 10x42mm fuses Leupold’s DNA engine and ballistics software with the optical performance diehard hunters and shooters demand.
“The BX-4 Range HD combines the industry’s fastest ranging solution with Leupold’s unparalleled optical performance,” said Product Line Manager Eric Overstreet. “It’s easy to use, it’s incredibly fast, and it offers a clearer display than anything else in its price class.”
A true hybrid of tech and optical performance, the BX-4 Range HD combines Leupold’s DNA laser engine and ballistics software with the company’s award-winning BX-4 binocular, allowing hunters and shooters to spot and range targets at the same time without wasting valuable seconds switching between gear. Its high contrast red OLED display delivers visible readouts in any light, and its edge-to-edge resolution makes glassing sessions easy on the eyes.
The BX-4 Range HD is built around Leupold’s Elite Optical System. It delivers excellent dawn to dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, elite-level glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity diehard hunters and shooters demand. Compare it to other rangefinding binoculars in its class, and you’ll notice a significant difference, especially in low light.
Looking for a ballistic solution that promises something as simple as range, dial, shoot? Leupold’s True Ballistic Range/Wind (TBR/W) technology takes precision to the next level by offering 25 selectable ballistics groups that account for your preferred cartridge, helping you dial in the exact range of your target. Using the rifleman’s rule on an angled 600-yard shot could result in a 10–15-inch margin of error when compared to the dead-on accuracy of Leupold’s TBR/W. And with TBR/W’s 10-mph wind holds, you’ll have all the information you need to experience more first shot hits. Combine that accuracy with Leupold’s Custom Dial System and you’ll be on target in seconds. The BX-4 Range HD ranges reflective targets at 2,600 yards, trees at 1,600 yards and deer-sized game at 1,100 yards.
“Hunters and shooters have been asking us to develop a rangefinding binocular for years,” said Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development and Marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “We weren’t going to come to market until we had the product that Leupold consumers both demand and require. The BX-4 Range HD is that product. Its rangefinding solution and optical performance are the best in its class, hands down.”
Further, it is ambidextrous. Left-handed consumers can access the easy-to-use menu and configure the unit to be operated with the left hand. The BX-4 Range HD delivers superior ruggedness and is tested for extreme climates. It is waterproof and fogproof.
