Loopy or Zeiss

Ok guys, I have a bit of a problem. I don't like to buy things for myself so my wife usually has to do it. Even the 338Edge Kirby built for me took the talking into by my wife. I have a 16X Super Sniper on it and want to upgrade, been wanting to since last deer season. She said she is going tomorrow and getting me a new scope and I better let her know what I want or she is gonna pick one she likes. And she has absolutely no idea what she is doing. I told her to wait till I got home and she said she wants me to have it when I get home, so I better tell her by tomorrow. I have narrowed my choices down to a new 6.5-20X50 VX3 or Zeiss Conquest. I know the Zeiss has much better glass but only has 45inches of adjustments. The Loopy has 72inches. I use a mark4 Loopy daily and have no problem with it, they are just over priced in my opinion. I have Leupold dovetail rings and base and was wondering if the Burris rings with inserts would work with the Zeiss since I would have to buy new rings for it anyway. Your opinions just happen to matter to me. Thanks!
By the way, it will be used for targets and deer/coyote hunting out to 1000yds. The load is a 300gr SMK at about 2800fps.

Don't confuse the Conquest with the much superior (and more expensive) Zeiss Diavari models.

The S&B is great, but what about the NXS? It seems to be the most popular long range scope nowadays.

One last question. Where in the world did you find a wife like that?

A buddy of mine introduced us....after a rodeo I was in(the bull I drew pretty much embarised me). The night involved me getting drunk(a rare occurance), a thong, resistol hat and cowboy boots. She said it was the craziest thing she had ever seen. I guess it works, you should try it sometime. Just make sure your buddies don't see or they'll never let you live it down. And when somebody asks y'all how ya met, it's a hell of a story.

Of course she does, and wouldn't you know it she is one of the hottest women you will ever see! Don't get me wrong my wife is a beautiful woman.but her sister is so hot you have to wear sun glasses around her so nobody see's you staring(especially at her big fake D b.....)! Of course she is married to a multi-millionaire. I think I better go call my wife, by the way she also just got me a palm and Exbal. Great woman!
