Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14 experiences?

I'm thinking of purchasing a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x50 with the Rapid Z 800 reticle for my .264 win mag sporter weight rifle. This model seems to have everything I'm looking for (weight, power, reticle, and looks). Wondering if anyone has any experience with these conquest models. I already have Nightforce, Leupold, Burris, Nikon, Bushnell Elite, Swarovski, and Kahles scopes that I use on my other rifles so I know what these are like. I'm looking for any experiences my fellow shooters have had with the Zeiss Conquest. Thanks in advance for your help.

I use the same scope with 44mm obj., and like it on my .300RUM.

Re: Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14 experiences?

I also have the 44mm 1" tube model. It's been on an AR-15 for a long time. A friend of mine has same scope on a 25-06 and neither of us have had any problems with them.

We don't have the exposed adjustments, so we don't click them up and down and left/right alot, don't know how important that is to you.? I don't have any opinion on reticle tracking/repeatability.
Optics seem to be very good. Holding zero seems to be very good. Light weight is a plus too.

I would buy another if needed.

I plan on using the reticle for holdover so adjustments aren't that important except for ability to retain zero.

Anybody else have experiences good or bad?

I have a 3.5-10 z800 on a stw and like it alot. I have 9 zeiss scopes and all track well and always hold their zero. Everything I've read says the rapid z reticle is one of the best BDC reticles out there, I know it works.

Times 2. I really like it a lot, it matches this cartridge for long range. You can check on their site and match your load to get the actual yardages per each range line.

I have had one on a 257 for 4 yrs and no problems always tracks good and returns to zero. I dont have the rapid z but either way a great scope you wont regret it.
