I use to live in Virginia and the zeiss building is right outside of chester VA. But on another note I suspect my scope was sent to Kenton as well. I had a gunsmith shop handle the entire operation as I was having a 257W set up. The 4.5x14 works good and it will hold its adjustment values up and down the range as you click it. I now have the same scope on a 6.5x284. I just had to order another turret to match the blist. of the gun and load. I wish I never would of let my wife have the other scope for her 243 but it good glass and since I had 2 conquest she now has one. But it make me a great varmit gun.
Just the other day I had my 4x16 viper and my zeiss out and honest at the 600yrds I think the zeiss may have been a little more crisp but it probably a toss up. Who knows.
