Re: don't know what to get.. need help

I agree on the circles. They seem to get in the way, so to speak. I prefer the Vortex BDC. On my 6.5x20, it is a regular sized reticle with windage and elevation marks. My 2.5x10 has very similar marks but at about half size. It give a nice, fine aiming point, much easeir than the Nikon.

    I totaly agree jeff. I never saw why nikon used those stupid circles. I know there supposidly for ranging but id take straight lines anyday like vortex and leupold uses if i wanted another bdc scope. those circles are just to distracting.

    I wouldn't say they are stupid. They work when you use them the way intended. A person needs to know the usage intended and then decide if it is right for them. I would highly recommend checking out the Spot On program before deciding against the BDC, it is very cool!

    Re: don't know what to get.. need help

    I know what you mean. I have 2 Conquests. The 6.5-20x50 and the 3-12x56 30mm. I have fallen in love with my 6.5-20x50 with the Z-Plex. I'd like to have the reticle swapped over to a Mil-Dot, and also am considering ordering a Mil-Dot 6.5-20x50 in my next order to Midway USA.

    To me, Zeiss Conquest scopes are THE best bang for your buck. Their coating on those is almost as good as their Victory line of scopes (their top of the line).

    I want a NF so bad I can't stand it, but can't afford one, unless I sell a gun (which ain't happening), or a truck, or something else like that.

    So, I'm debating on giving this a try next....Just to help diversify my glass collection. I like how you send them ballistics data and they make you custom turrets for a VERY reasonable price. And the turrets are marked in yardage and not in clicks.
