Re: Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20 x50

Bill why would the windage matter at 100 yards if you use Leupold rings and bases? If you line the scope up straight it should not be a problem. I have not decided yet but I know that is the Clearest Scope I have ever looked through. I have had lots of Leupold scopes but I don't like how the eye relief changes on different power settings and they need some work in the adjustment department.

It doesn't matter @ 100 yds but when you get out to 1000+ yds you may start to run out of adjustment. A mildot could cure this problem though.

Bill, I was going to get the mildot scope because out to 700 yards they work well for my setup and I dont have to dial in the scope. So you do not like your Zeiss? Do you still have it?

I love everything about this scope opticly. It is clearer than any Leupold I've ever owned. It just does not have the range of adjustment I would like. We are thinking of playing with the 1 mile mark and this scope won't cut it.

Yes, I still have it. It is not a mildot. It is going to be at least mid to late April before Leupold gets my other scope to me, but I would part ways with the Zeiss right now for $650 shipped to your door.

Thanks,
B.J.

i've been eyeballing that scope also.i have a swarovski 6.5x18x50 with 47" of vertical adjustment too.look at the burris signature rings with the posi-lign inserts and have it set at 100yd zero at the bottom of the adjustment dial.

Much easier said than done. I've been screwing with mine for 2 months trying to get it right on the bottom and haven't made it. It's either too high or too low. My impatient nature won out and I ordered something with more adjustment.
