#1 thoughts on the Zeiss Conquest HD5'S - 3.5X15 OR THE 5X25
#2 Are there any other scopes out there that I should consider other than Zeiss in the same price range?
#3 I have been looking at the Rapid Z-600 AND THE RZ 800 , which one of these and why?
I will be shooting out to 1,000 yrds but most likely keep hunting shots at 3 to 5 hundred for now.
#1 for shooting out to 1000 I would have a scope with tactical turrets. Working on reticle for such distance is quite difficult.
As for power I would go with 3.5-15 since it is more versatile.
#2 leupold mark4 3.5-10 - for big game or 4.5-14 - for the rest hunting with tmr, m1, but they are a bit more expensive.
#3 see point #1.
