The New Steiner H6Xi Hunting Series

Last updated on October 1st, 2023

Steiner Optics have released a new line of hunting scopes, the Steiner H6Xi series. There are three variants in the line up which include 2-12×42, 3-16×50 and 5-30×50. Cut from the same cloth as the T6Xi series, the H6Xi scopes are aimed at hunters looking for a tough scope combined with good glass for their hunting rifle.

This series are made in the USA and what immediately stands out to me is that the MIL/MRAD fans will be disappointed as the H6Xi series are only coming out in MOA. Steiner have indicated the MHR-MOA reticle will be used on all variants in the series in the first focal plane. It’s a very similar reticle to my current hunting reticle in the Maven Optics RS.3. It’s a simple reticle and provides an uncrowded imprint when looking down the scope and well suited to hunting.

The turrets are also well suited for hunting with a low profile similar to the T6Xi. There is also a deep knurling on the turrets to help make adjustments more easily. The windage turret is capped and the elevation turret is exposed. Parallax adjustment is listed as 25 yards minimum out to infinity. As any high end hunting optic should be, the scope is waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof.


Steiner H6Xi 2-12×42

Durable and well-suited hunting optic.


Steiner H6Xi 3-16×50

Great all round magnification and low profile optic.


Steiner H6Xi 5-30×50

Built for long distance shooting and hard field work.

Overall there are some good magnification ranges providing a few different options for hunters. Having extensively used the T6Xi series I am sure the glass and build quality in the H6Xi will be the same excellent standard. It would have been good to see these with some MIL reticle options, maybe they will release them in the future.
