Zeiss Conquest: Hunting vs Target Turret?

I'm considering a Zeiss 3-9x50 MC for my Savage .270. I want a dial for range, but I'm not sure what turret I want on it. Does anyone have a Zeiss with a "Hunting Turret"? "Target turret"? Can you please post a photo. Maybe give a few pros and cons. Thanks!

    Here's a pic of my Conquest 6.5-20x50 with target turrets...





    Here's some pics of my Weatherby AccuMark .257 Wby mag with a Conquest 3-12x56 30mm with regular hunting turrets for comparison.

    So the hunting turrets are like regular turrets on any stock non-tactical scope?

    Not intentionally, since the scope is attached to it....But it does look good, huh?
