Not if you want to spin turrets.

The Swaros with the turrets have limited adjustments and no windage - unless you get the new reticle which still is only an educated guess. Great glass, but the scopes do have limitations. Also at $1049 they're about $300 more than a Zeiss demo from CameralandNY.

I don't think the Swarovski can compare to zeiss tracking either.

I have 2 of the 6.5x20 Conquest. 1 is on Browning SS Stalker in 7Mag and the other on a .257 Wthrby Mag Ultra LW. Both have the target turrets. Perfect tracking. Great glass and unequivocal factory support if ever needed. I only had questions no scope issues.

I should just get rid of everything else and just put these scopes on every rifle I feel that strong about their performance at a reasonably price scope.

I wish they would come out with more power though like a 8x32 w/fine plex for PD shooting. The older I get the more power I want/need.

I have the 4.5-14 on a .338 RUM. love the scope excellent glass but there are some other scope's out there that may be better like the Minox 4-20 great glass and the right magnification needed comes with the target turrets and has 80 moa of elevation and windage adjustments, can't get much better than that for $600.00 .

I have the 6.5 - 20 Conquest and love it. I never feel like I want to go lower than 6.5x. In fact I did a review on this scope last week you can read it here: WesternOutdoors.com
I also purchased a similarly priced Leupold that I regret. The Zeiss is a much better scope in my opinion.

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

I have the 4.5-14 x 44 and x 50. I just ordered my first 6.5-20 so I can't comment on that.

between the ones I have I actually prefer the x 44 as it's a lighter scope. Had Zeiss put target turrets on it and they perform flawlessly.

the only problem I've ever had with the 4 I have is one of them had a dark smudge on one of the internal lenses that could be seen at the lower power levels. Once I passed about 7x it went outside the field of view. I called the service number they checked their inventory and said they would send me a new one the day they received mine. True to their words i receive a brand new scope overnight 5 days from the day I sent mine back with standard delivery.

Will never buy a different scope again.
