New for 2019, the Freedom RDS changes the game when it comes to consistency and durability in a red dot sight. Leupold took over 70 years of optics knowledge and created a red dot that is tough as nails and priced to wow. Don?t believe us? Let?s take a closer look at the Freedom RDS.
Built for recreational shooters and hunters alike, the Freedom RDS will be available in two distinct models: One features capped precision ?-MOA click adjustments, and the other features a precision exposed BDC elevation turret that ships with adjustments out to 500 yards for a standard 55-grain .223 Rem. round. Designed to function just like Leupold?s popular CDS (Custom Dial System), the BDC turret makes longer shots a whole lot easier. Once you?ve zeroed your rifle, you?ll be able to reset the dial and then make shot adjustments in yards rather than MOA. So, if your target is 500 yards away, simply turn the dial to 5 and aim dead on. This allows you to make precise, close quarter shots and then quickly dial out to 500 yards for accurate, longer shots if necessary, all without worrying about holdovers. It?s as easy as that.
If you decide to mount your Freedom RDS to a rifle that?s chambered in other popular AR-style calibers like a 6.5 Creedmoor or .300 Blackout, the Leupold Custom Shop can burn you a new dial for a nominal fee.
But the Freedom RDS doesn?t stop there. If you?ve used other red dots in the past, you might notice that they tend to distort colors or have blurry edges. Not the Freedom RDS. Leupold?s Twilight Red Dot System not only helps you see more in less light, it also delivers great color consistency and premium lens clarity.
