Zeiss Conquest Elevation Travel

I'm looking at purchasing a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x50 scope, but don't know how much elevation and windage travel it has. Anyone out there have one these scopes and know off hand?

    Just about everything else you need to know about that scope.

    Chris,

    So by my calculations this translates to about 65 MOA elevation and about 43 MOA windage. Could you confirm?

    Well your math is right. I haven't actually cranked mine to the limits each way, but with Burris Sig. Rings I wind up about 11 MOA from bottoming out and still have enough to get past 1K with my 7mm SAUM.

    Without a canted base I am getting about 20 MOA out of a zeiss conquest in Leupold rings. I have my scope on a friends 7mm/08 temporarily just working up a load for the gun's owner. I cannot get to 800 without using an alternate aiming point in the reticule. With a canted base you should be fine.

    This is what I tend to hear. For guys that would like to get out to 1k with a 308 or equal I recommend a 30moa to a 40moa base.
