Chris you won't find a better long range scope for 1,000$ than the new Zeiss HD 5-25x50 scope. I'm a huge Zeiss, Swaro, and Kahles fan.
I don't know how the heck Zeiss did it for the price, but this scope is on par with Swaro's 5x25s and they are 1,600 bucks. Zeiss will be phasing out the old Conquest line for the new HD line. With this scope you're getting Zeiss Multi T coatings plus the louatec coatings for 1,000$. Thats almost unheard of being that the scope itself is made in Germany. Consider this scope a STEAL at 1,000 dollars. I'm getting one for my Sako 85 Finnlite 7mm mag for sure. I had to keep hitting the refresh button and called around to several stores to see if that 1,000 price was right.
