Leupold’s Gold Ring Spotting Scopes are known for their reliability and optical quality — but that doesn’t mean they can’t get better.
Leupold has redesigned its Gold Ring Spotting Scope line, offering enhanced ruggedness, a new industrial design and a reticle matched to the company’s riflescope offerings.

New for the Gold Ring Spotting Scope is the addition of the Impact Reticle in the 12-40x60mm HD and the 20-80x60mm models. This MOA-based, front focal plane reticle allows guides or spotters to call impacts and offer immediate corrections.
A minute-of-angle based grid set in the lower half of the viewing field allows for fast and accurate measurements at any magnification. Additional milradian dots allow the Impact reticle to be used with mil-based reticles as well.
The combination of an MOA reticle in the spotting scope and matching adjustments on the riflescope make sighting in a simple, two-shot process. Fire a shot, measure the adjustment using the reticle’s gradiations, dial in the adjustment and fire the second to confirm.
A new armor coating offers protection in the field, while the prism-less Folded Light Path system significantly reduces the overall length, making the Gold Ring a great option for back country hunts or anywhere else space is at a premium.
