I am building a 6.5-280AI rifle and trying to decide which optics to put on the rifle. I have other zeiss conquests and absolutely love them, and I also have a bushnell 3200 and 4200 tactical. The glass is far better on the zeiss, but I don't know if the 6500 is better than the other ones. I was looking and the busnell 2.5-16 or the zeiss conquest 3.5-10x44, 4.5-14x44, and the 4.5-14x50 with the turrets. Since most of the shots will be within 100-200 yards, but maybe out to 500 I'm not sure if I want the turrets or not. Which would you guys pick out of these scopes? I can't really afford more expensive models like a NF or USO and so these are on the top end of my budget. I think once I finish this project I'll start saving for and EDGE with a NF, but for now this will have to do! Thanks for the help guys
That depends on how much do you want to take that occasional 500 yard shot. If most of your shots will be between 100 and 200 yards, maybe the turrets are not worthy, but if you really desire to take that 500 yard shot, then it is more than likely a must have type of thing. Good luck anyways, and happy new year.
