Do I want a Conquest?

I went shooting today. While shooting I noticed some stuff on the lens inside my Sightron 4.5 X 14 Mil Dot scope. This same thing happened last fall and Sightron sent me another one claiming that the scope would still function fine even with the debris floating around iinside. Rifle was my 300 win shooting 200 gr Accubonds, so there was sufficient recoil. However I have lost confidence in this scope and I am going to send it in and put it on a rifle with less recoil. My question is Should I but I Conquest to replace it? I like Conquest's glass, and I was going to get the same power range 4.5 X 14 Mil Dot. Will the Conquest hold up to the recoil? or Should I throw more money at a Nightforce or Swaro? Thanks

    Chain

    I've got three, a 4.5x14x50 on a 7mm SAUM, a 6.5x20x50 on a 6.5-284, and a 6.5x20x50 on a 300 WM. The 300 has about 325 rounds on it, 200 gr ABs and SMKs, with no problems. The 7mm only has near 100 rds on it, but no problems there either. I doubt the 6.5 has enough recoil to really matter but I've had no trouble with that one either.

    I won't say they're the best scope out there, but in my opinion they are one of the best in their price range.

    Just remember, the turrets turn opposite of American made scopes, if you dial. If you don't, no big deal.

    I have four, 3.5-10, (2) 4.5-14 and a 6,5-20. Presently mounted on a 7 RUM, 30-378, 338 RUM and a 375 H&H. Recoil has not been an issue. All of these scopes have been back to Zeiss except the 3.5-10, the adj were not precise. Once they get em sorted out they have worked just fine for me.

    Yeah -mine comes from new york i think -not really a foreign country but close.

    I'm going to get one of the Rapid Z reticles in 4.5x14 44 and give it a whirl ,hopefully it will work out well for predator calling.
