Re: Swarovski Z5 question
I've hunted a Z5 3.5-18 plex on my ULA 7rm. Love it. The plex reticle is about as thin as I'd want it, but its still usable at first light. Glass is amazing, great mag range, less than 16oz.
I got a 2-12x50 z6i for my 7stw this year. Love the lit 4a reticle. Awesome in the timber. I honestly wish I had the 2.5-15 or 3-18, as we have to have 3 pts or better here and looking for eyeguards at 300 yards is tough, but I found a great deal on the 2-12 so I went with it. Glass is amazing, but so is the Z5 for less $. The tipping point for me was the lit reticle, as we have lots of DARK timber here in the PNW.
