I have a Conquest 4.5-14x44 Rapid Z800 on a 338RUM and it is great for hunting. For paper punching, I find the reticle is a little heavy for precision work. The z-plex is better for target or varmints.
Mine is another vote for the Rapid Z reticle for hunting within 600yds. My opinion is that nothing is simpler in a hunting situation. I have the 3.5-10 Conquest with Z 600 on my 300 Wby magnum and love it.
I also have a 6.5-20 Conquest with mil dot reticle on my long range gun - 7mm Wby. Its new and have only used it on targets so far. But its super clear and I figure on most shots I'll have the luxury of twirling knobs.
Add me to the list of thumbs up. I just got a 3.5x10 50mm for my 300wsm. It has the rapid z 600. I like it alot. The calculator that the zeis recommends you use with the rapid z is easy and right on.
My opinion Zeiss glass is hard to beat.
