Re: Which scope for my new mountain rifle build???
Check out Minox. They don't have a super long track record, but I picked one up from Cameraland on clearance. They have 5x erectors and the best eye relief I've gotten behind.
They have lots on Samplelist. Several reticle choices and lightweight. Def worth a look. I'd put them very close to the Zeiss Conquest that I've seen. Granted, I haven't shot the Zeiss, just looked through it.
The selling factor for me is the weight and UNBELIEVEABLE eye relief.
