Re: Is zeiss conquest 3x9x40 a 600 yard scope?
I agree with previous posts. You are going to have to try that one out yourself. I think Roy hit the spot when he said reticle size and parallax. If you dont find yourself struggling with those, take her as far as she will go!
As far as the conquest goes I dont think you can get better for the money. In fact just today I was working on mounting both a Leupold VX3 and Conquest. Both 3.5x10 and both 50mm obj. Bouncing back and forth between the two working on bore sighting and such the difference in clarity was overwhelming in favor of the Conquest. I love Zeiss Conquest scopes. As far as durability goes I dont see any problem with mounting on top of a 338winmag. Should handle the recoil just fine.
