The Perfect Combination of Performance and Design


The new benchmark in the 6x zoom class

With the new Fortis 6, Leica combines a puristic riflescope design with high optical imaging performance. With an up to 50 % larger exit pupil and an extremely wide field of view at minimum magnification, the Leica Fortis 6 is today the riflescope of the 6 x zoom class. The excellent detail recognition and unique image sharpness provide great observation comfort to the last minute. The robust construction makes the Leica Fortis 6 resistant to impacts and falls and guarantees functional reliability in every hunting situation.


Close proximity, Wide field of View
The world through Leica eyes

With a large zoom factor and a large field of view, Leica Magnus i riflescopes allow maximum flexibility, easy handling and safety, and help you keep a critical overview in every hunting situation.


Bright Reticle Illumination
Convincing in all light conditions

Every model in the Magnus i range features bright day/night reticle illumination. Thanks to a sensitive brightness control, you can always find the perfect level, letting you maintain focus on your target without being distracted by excess illumination.


Optical Perfection
Better vision means safer targeting

The great strength of every Leica riflescope is its excellent image display, which is made possible by extraordinarily high contrast, maximum stray-light suppression and perfect light transmission.

Fortis 6 Reticles
Perfect shot in every situation

Fortis_6_Absehen_Window_Teaser_All_Pages_2400x940_teaser-1200x470.jpg



Reticles


The sensitive brightness control lets you choose how dim or bright you wish the illumination to be. So you always have an overview – and you can see all the important details even in adverse conditions. All Leica reticle designs have been developed and tested by field sportsmen, are located in the second focal plane and feature an intelligent auto on/off function. Riflescopes from the Fortis 6 series can be ordered with an optional BDC bullet drop compensation system, and a new ballistics programme for BDC is available for download, guaranteeing precise shooting every time.


Reticle L-4a

With a crosshair thickness of 0.2 in/0.5 cm and distance between horizontal posts of 55 in/140 cm, these are the universal reticles for precision shooting.

BDC – Bullet drop compensation

BDC-Teaser-Allgemein-US-Landscape_teaser-960x640.png



The BDC ets you adjust the reticle to various shooting distances. Using the calibrations, the reticle can be set so that the exact impact point is guaranteed on the target. The BDC is easy to use and functions with absolute precision in all weather conditions.

Riflescopes from the Magnus series can be ordered with an optional BDC bullet drop compensation system, and a new ballistics programme for BDC is available for download, guaranteeing precise shooting every time.

Direct Dial

Direct-Dial-DE_teaser-960x640.png



With a “direct dial ring”, Leica’s BDC works even more quickly and intuitively. Simply replace the standard engraved ring with a ring featuring range information, and start selecting the precise shooting distance. With 12 different rings to choose from, you can pick the best-fit one for your caliber and load.

Ballistics programme for Leica rapid reticle adjustment (BDC)

Leica-Ballistiktool-New-Landscape_teaser-960x640.png



The Leica ballistics programme performs calculations for the Geovid HD-B (including download of data), the ballistic reticles of the Leica riflescopes as well as the rapid reticle adjustment (BDC) of the Leica riflescopes.

This allows the calculation of the target range for almost any kind of ammunition, taking into account many parameters relevant for hunting, such as sighting-in distance, the height of the sight line, temperature and height. For Leica riflescopes with ballistic reticle or rapid reticle adjustment (BDC) you can calculate and print tables for distance as well as click value. In addition, you can calculate individual ammunition loads for the programming of the Geovid HD-B and download the data on a microSD-card.

So when will you make one of these in a 4X24? That would get my attention. Or even a 3.5X21 would be nice. Magnification down for the timber and higher end for the prairie.
