Re: Zeiss Rapid Z 800

I agree with Wildrose. In addition to that, the reticle has one or more subtention lines between each bar.

Bar 3- 333 yards
Bar 4- 462 Yards
Bar 5- 585 yards
Bar 6- 707 yards
Bar 7- 828 yards
Bar 8- 946 yards

The Z-800 has great glass which makes it a great low-light scope. I only have one problem with the Zeiss Conquest, the crosshairs are a bit thick for longer ranges.
I agree with the cross hair problem. I wish I would have looked through one before I bought mine. Hazards of web shopping I guess. I also don't like the adjustment on the eye piece as you can't get a Butler Creek on it.
