Re: Leupold VX-3 vs. Zeiss Conquest.

what the guy above me said. the zeiss rapid z system is better if for any reason you find yourself using a different ammo than you have for your CDS turret. i don't think leupold is the same company they used to be

I have both zeiss and leupold and both are great scopes. I think the zeiss may have the edge on glass quality. The other day I was shooting my .204 at 100yards and I could see my bullet holes on 14X.

I have both and the Zeiss has the edge on the glass, enough so that I will be replacing my Leupolds as funding allows. The 4.5-14x 44 AO (with either mil dot or rapid Z 800) is an awesome scope.

at the range I can see my 7mm bullet holes at 100 yards at 9x with my 3x9 conquest.
