My 3-15 has 78 MOA total, I have 41 up and 37 down as it sits in lightweight talleys. A 30 MOA rail would allow ME to remove the ZS and bottom out in 7 MOA. In theory it should work.
The way it is with the ZS I can get out to 700 between the stops, If I sighted in at 300 I could get to 800 and hold on hair for deer sized game.

A 30MOA rail would also get you over a mile with most magnums and high BC bullets.

I have mine on a 6.5 creedmoor so I would not shoot any animal further than 700 yards...except maybe a coyote.

Being able to shoot a mile with a 1" scope is pretty good

Re: New Zeiss Conquest HD5 5-25x50 rifle scope.

Hello everybody!

Im living in Germany and have received a Conquest HD5 5-25x50 riflescope recently (ordered from OP). To be honest, Im a little bit concerned regarding the zero stop because Ive noticed that on my new scope the elevation turret can only be turned counter clockwise in "UP" direction from the factory set "0" position onwards.
Is this correct? Otherwise is such a scope with already "activated" zero stop only recognizable on an elevation range limited to 16.5 MOA in the "UP" direction (starting from "0" Position)?
Besides that I also noticed traces on elevation and windage screw slots caused by a not correctly fitting screw driver...
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks a lot and greetings from Germany,
Ralf

I have that scope,no scratchs on mine. I unscrew the turret it on other side of vertical screw,or I can remove the screw all together and have full range of adjustment............. Hey I thought your not allowed to own guns in Germany ? What are the gun laws over there ?

Thanks for your reply!

Im sorry but I dont understand what screw to unscrew or to remove you mean exactly to get unlimited elevation?

Meanwhile Ive found and read another thread in this forum ("Got my zeiss HD5 xxx today") but still Im not sure about that.

Could you please explain that to me again exactly?

German gun laws are still allowing legal possession of guns for civilians under a number of legal restraints. The three main ways to get a licence for owning guns are in becoming a marksman, hunter (Im both) or gun collector, each of depending on detailed appropriate grounds, background checks, checks of physical and psychological health, completing courses and passing examinations, proving of safe gun storage etc.

Thank you very much, and greetings from Germany, Ralf
