Definition of the various categories of information found in this manual


  • Additional Information


  • Non-compliance may result in damage to the device and accessories
  • Non-compliance may result in personal injury


  • Non-compliance may result in serious injury or death


The rifle scope comes equipped with excellent optics. These optics deliver a clear, bright image even in difficult conditions or less than optimal lighting for a reliable reticule and a relevantly accurate and professional shot. The shooter can rely on this additional accuracy for narrow clearances or in difficult terrain. Its particularly rugged product design makes the Leica rifle scope a reliable companion for all types of hunting.

The rifle scopes with a 42 mm lens diameter or higher are optionally available with rapid reticle adjustment (Leica BDC). Leica BDC is the perfect solution to allow the intuitive aim you are used to, while compensating for any relevant point of impact compensation (see p. 20 for functional scope and operation).


The standard scope of delivery* contains the following:

  • Rifle scope
  • Transport cover
  • Test certificate
  • 1 lithium coin battery (CR 2032)
  • Lens cloth
  • Safety information
  • Accessory brochure “Hunting

The first prerequisite for a robust point of impact is the correct mounting of the rifle scope on the weapon. A wide selection of mounting parts are available from specialist retailers. We
recommend using only high-quality parts from renowned manufacturers that match the quality characteristics of your Leica rifle scope.

You can mount the device yourself, but you will have to ensure a perfectly aligned and tension-free structure. Leica strongly recommends contracting a specialist workshop.

• We recommend gluing the lower mounting ring to prevent any travel of the rifle scope within the ring mount.


The viewfinder has a diopter setting function with a range between -3 and +2 diopter to allow glasses wearers the use of the Leica rifle scope without eyeglasses (diopter compensation).

  • Turn the magnification adjustment ring 4
    -higher magnification = to the right
    -lower magnification = to theleft


Reticle illumination is switched On or Off via the adjustment ring 8. The brightness of the illuminated dot can be adjusted in multiple increments.

A calibration of the reticle to the weapon will be required in case of an offset of the point of impact. The procedure is the same on both setting turrets (elevation: 5, lateral 6).

Leica Amplus 6 Rifle Scopes Instruction Manual

The procedure is the same on both setting turrets (elevation: 5, Page 6).

  • Adjust the point of impact (see p. 17)
  • Remove the cover over the setting turret 5d/6b
  • Lift the knurled wheel 5a/6a
  • Turn 0 positions back to index
  • Push down gently on the knurled wheel 5a/6a until it clicks into place
  • Replace the cover of the ballistic turret 5d/6b


  • Once you have done your adjustments on knurled wheels, you can get back to the basic setting for the firing distance after any change to the point of impact by simply going back to the
    0positions, without having to remember or note down anything.


Leica rifle scopes with a maximum magnification of 12x are adjusted parallax-free up to a range of 100 m, so that you can see the reticle and the target at the chosen distance in perfect focus

Any deviations in the point of impact with the eye not perfectly centered are generally negligible. 9 With larger magnifications, however, these deviations must be taken
into consideration. That is why rifle scopes with magnification ranges above 12x have parallax compensation.

  • Turn the adjustment ring 9 until the image of the target appears in perfect focus

-We recommend using the highest magnification for the most accurate settings.

-An optimum adjustment is achieved when reticle and image no longer move relative to one another when you change the position of your eye over the eyepiece.

(optional accessory)

The Leica fast reticle adjustment BDC (Bullet Drop Compensator) is an optional accessory you can add to your Leica rifle scope.


-Fast reticle adjustment BDC (BDC unit)

-Hex key SW 1.5 mm


  • Possible deviations from the product images do not influence the basic functions and handling of the product.

Upon delivery, the reticle of the Leica rifle scope is set to the mechanical midpoint of the total adjustment track.


  • Mounting the rifle scope (see p. 14)
    • Ensure the best possible parallelism of the rifle scope and weapon, so that the adjustment range for zeroing compensation is minimal.


  • Align the weapon so that the center of the target is visible centrally when looking through the barrel
    • The system lock must be removed.
  • Look through the attached rifle scope and correct the offset of the target marker to the center of the target by turning the elevation and/or lateral adjustment
    • Do not change the position of the weapon while doing so.
  • Check again, whether the target marker and the center of the barrel are aligned and can be seen congruently on the target.

  • Depending on the mounting type, there may be a limited adjustment track available in use after zeroing. You can use a relevantly tilted downward mounting if the total adjustment track
    is too short.
  • We recommend use of a mounting tilted forward by around 10MOA. This mounting gives you an additional approx. 29cm per 100m adjustment track.


  • Make sure that the rifle scope and weapon are zeroed in
  • Remove cover 5d
  • Slide the knurled wheel with scale 5a/5b up and off and replace in the desired position
  • Replace cover 5d


  • The scale ring must be held in place while the knurled wheel is removed and then replaced to prevent inadvertent setting changes.


Zero Stop is a freely definable height adjustment stop, with which the adjustment range can be limited. It offers a palpable stop without having to take your eye off the lens. Zero Stop is deactivated ex works.

Setting the Zero Stop
(Fig. A—C)

  • Turn the elevation adjustment turret 5d in anti-clockwise direction
  • Slide off the knurled wheel with scale 5a/5b
  • Use the hex key to release the three attachment screws
  • Push down the Zero Stop 12
  • Turn in anti-clockwise direction to the stop (Make sure that the two cams fit seamlessly together.)
  • Use the hex key to tighten the three attachment screws (Don’t use too much force!)
  • Replace the knurled wheel with scale 5a/5b in the desired position
  • Turn the elevation adjustment turret 5d in clockwise direction and tighten it to secure the setting


  • Ensure that the three attachment screws are sufficiently tightened to prevent accidental changes to the setting. Don’t use too much force!
  • Once the zero stop is set, a downward calibration of the point of impact of the BDC is no longer possible.
  • The knurled wheel with scale must be held in place while the cover of the elevation adjustment turret is removed or replaced to prevent inadvertent setting changes.

We recommend using the Leica Ballistic Calculator to take full advantage of the reticle quick adjustment. Taking into account relevant parameters like firing distance, line of sight height, temperature and elevation, the Leica Ballistic Calculator can calculate the trajectory for virtually any ammunition.

  • Your Leica product requires no special care.
  • Coarse dirt particles like sand can be removed with a soft brush or simply blown off.
  • Fingerprints, etc. on front lenses and eyepiece lenses can be pre-cleaned with a damp cloth and then wiped dry with a clean leather or lint-free cloth.
  • Do not use alcohol or chemical cleaning solutions on the optics or housing.
  • Do not use excessive force when cleaning a severely soiled lens surface. The coating is abrasion resistant, but not impervious to sand or salt crystals.
  • The housing should be cleaned using a damp leather cloth only. Using a dry cloth may cause friction, which may result in a static discharge.
  • Always rinse off any traces of salt water! Dried salt crystals could damage the surfaces.
  • The device should be stored in a well-ventilated, dry and cool place to prevent fungal growth (particularly important in humid climates).
  • Remove the battery from the housing if you will not be using the product for an extended period of time.
