Anyone running a Conquest 4.5-14 or 6.5-20?

I want to scope a .257WM for hunting, and I am looking close at a 4.5-14x50 and a 6.5-20x50 with a German #4, and target turret. Primary use is for longish range deer and coyotes (when I see em deer hunting).

Any comments on these 2 scopes are appreciated. I have also considered the new VX-6 2-12x42 (30mm tube) that Leupold has come out with, but the Zeiss is getting the nod.

Thanks for any discussion concerning these scopes.

    I have the 4.5-14x44 with hunter knobs (covered short ones) and 4.5-14x50 with target turrets. It's a great scope, and I plan on converting my x44 to target turrets by having Zeiss retrofit them. Currently the x50 is mounted on my 7mm Rem Mag Sendero and it's a great match. The x44 will likely go on my 340 Wby once I have new turrets installed.

    I'd highly recommend either one.

    Thanks Dr. vette. I figured I might as well get the target turret right out of the gate, since I would send the scope in anway. I really think the 20X will be overkill for my needs.

    I have both and love em both

    the only thing with the TTurrets is as I was getting thru some thick bursh on a hunt rifle on sling a branch wraped around the knob and spun it and I was not sure which direction, (Hunt over that day till I got to test it.)

    I've got 2 of the 4.5s at Zeiss right now getting target knobs. Excellent glass. Only bad thing is a bit short on eye relief.

    I've got the 4.5-14X44 AO and it is a very good scope but the Swarovski Z3 3-10X42 or 4-12X50 would be alot better choice for a little more$ IMO.
