The Illuminated Leupold® Ultimate Slam 3-9x40mm Muzzleloader Scope is the ideal combination of flexibility, accuracy, and durability for any modern Muzzleloader. The Ultimate Slam Scope possesses remarkable, innovative features that undeniably make it the premium, technology-advanced scope to own.
Light reflecting off a scope lens surface diminishes image quality. With that fact in mind, Leupold® engineers developed Multicoat 4®, a proprietary lens coating system to keep image quality pristine. Multicoat 4® greatly increases the amount of available light that reaches your eye, and at the same time, minimizes the reflections of the sky on the outer eyepiece. Of course, you will never be able to absolutely control the light, but with Leupold’s® Multicoat 4®, you can definitely make the most of it.
The Scope’s Quantum Optical System™ is a leap forward in providing a new level of optical performance for shooters and hunters. This system delivers new levels of performance in every optical category. Lead-free, ecological-friendly glass compositions are used throughout the scope. The geometry of each lens is maximized through a combination of Ze-Max® designed 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 varmint to the dawn and dusk hours when big whitetails are on the move. By repositioning optical elements, employing new coatings and most 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, resolution and color fidelity, all while preserving the ease of use and nearly indestructible ruggedness that has been a Hallmark of Leupold® Rifle Scopes for generations.
The generous eyebox of the Ultra Slam Scope makes it faster and easier to set your eye behind the riflescope to 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 give you incredible head position latitude, and an improved sight picture that fills the eyepiece completely. All this puts you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.
Leupold’s® Ballistics Aiming System™ (BAS) is comprised of five specialized reticles: Boone and Crockett® Big Game, Varmint Hunter’s, LR Duplex, LRV Duplex, and the new SA.B.R. that takes into account the variables crucial to accurate, long-range shooting. A special ballistics indicator ring allows users to customize their power settings for their cartridge ballistics, and then saves that setting for easy reference in a hunting situation. With multiple aiming points for longer ranges and varying wind speeds, and infinite power selector settings to match your rifle ballistics, the Ballistics Aiming System can help you master the art of accurate, long-range shooting. It has a proven track record of helping hunters learn how to shoot accurately at long range. Leupold® expanded your BAS options with additional reticles offering many of the same benefits as the original reticles, making them available in more riflescopes than ever. With practice, the Ballistics Aiming System will teach you how to gauge the distance to your target, where to place your reticle for that distance, and even how to compensate for wind deflection. With some practice with the Ballistics Aiming System, you’ll consistently make shots you wouldn’t have attempted in the past.
The FireDot SA.B.R. is designed specifically for muzzleloader and shotgun hunting with precise holdover points in 50-yard increments to 300 yards. This reticle features a bright red FireDot Centerpoint, six illumination settings and proprietary Motion Sensor Technology (MST). The MTS automatically deactivates illumination after five minutes of inactivity, plus re-activates as soon as any movement is detected.
The scope features a 1/4 MOA Finger Click and durable lens cover. The Finger Click adjustments for windage and elevation offers absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use (metric adjustments – 1 cm per click). The included lens cover protects your scope from dirt and damage whether in storage or in the field, and keeps the lenses of your 3-9x40mm Leupold® Rifle Scope looking like new. Undeniably a remarkable, feature-packed scope at a reasonable price.
