Sully, I'm confused. Don't these models come with a Plex reticle? How do you know much to hold over in that case.

You can get the Conquest line with about 5 or 6 different reticles and with or without target turrets.

Go to the Zeiss website and check them out

Same here. Kentucky Windage with a scope. If the winds blowing a little I'll move my crosshairs a little bit off center of my target to retain my wanted shot position.

They offer some of the Conquest scopes with MilDot reticles, and Rapid-Z reticles.

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.

Swarovski 3.5-18x44 BT = 15.9 ounces, great glass and the ballistic turret is a bonus. Light gathering is very good for a 44mm objective. I gave one and have no regrets.
