Re: Opinions Wanted conquest 3x9 or buckmaster 4-16
It is almost like asking if you should buy a ford ranger or a ford mustang. The Zeiss is by far a better scope in quality, but it has less power range. I would get the zeiss and not look back.
The adjustments are much better on the zeiss, the warranty is better, the optics are better, brings in more light, the only thing the buckmaster has to offer over the zeiss is the power level. If you are primarily taking longer shots, I'd advice differently to go w/ the target turrets, if you are primarily going for closer shots but want the ability to take a long poke, you should be able to do so w/ the 3-9. Have you checked into getting turrets for the zeiss? or you could get the rapid z 600 and that would be a very good match for your 308.
food for thought...
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
