Maybe I'll just buy a Weaver Grand Slam mil/mil 3-10...

Re: What scope would you put on my .270?

Never seen where 4.5 power on the low end was too much. Must be hunting in some super thick brush! I agree with mudrunners suggestion that power range of a scope is about perfect, although a 4x16 power would be better IMO. I just recently got a semi custom 270 winchester built also. I am leaning towards getting the zeiss 4.5x14x50 with target turrets.

This isn't really a long range build, but a short range rifle CAPABLE of 400 yard shots. I just don't need anything over about 10x, and with most of my shots being sub-100 yards in brush, 3x would be better.

Re: What scope would you put on my .270?

I purchased the Zeiss Conquest 4.5x14x50 with hunting turrets and Z-plex reticle for my 270 Win. It's a big scope at 14 inches in length. I really like the reticle alot more compared to the Leupold Duplex. The finer lines are longer or more spaced out than the leupolds that are so close together.

I have read several posts stating the reticle was too thick at long range. Not sure why they were saying that. The inner crosshairs are pretty thin. The glass is very nice.

I ended up putting this scope on my longer, heavier barreled, 7mm Remington Magnum, due to it's size. It looks better on it than on the lighter barreled 270.

I'm now looking at the 3.5x10x50 Zeiss scope for my 270.

Ah ha! I see we have created another convert and believer in the Conquest scopes. The truly are remarkable pieces of glass for their pricetags. Be sure to post pics of both one you get the other installed.
