Here is a pic of Conquest with Target Turrets and HD5 with target turrets, in case you decide to get the HD5 2-10x42

Yeah, I need to. I don't even use the damn things....Hell, the keys to them are in the boxes up in the attic. LOL

How much is a matte stainless pre-J shroud?

How do you compare the HD5 Conquest with the regular Conquest? deciding if I should spend the extra $$. The regular Conquest can be had for less money these days since the HD came out.

That would depend on price difference between the 2 I suppose. I cant say the HD5 glass is better that conquest yet since I've had the HD5 for only couple of weeks. Ill have a better idea in few months. The turrets, however, are def better on HD5. HD5 also has 65moa elev adj vs 45moa for conquest if it matters to you. But you cant go wrong with conquest. I have the 6.5-20 with varmint z reticle on a bm predator upper and its been perfect for the last 3 years.

I can get a 4.5-14x50 with target turrets for 560 plus shipping. I am very tempted to get it and then put on a Kenton custom turret for a .257 weatherby. Then again, that would run up the cost to 700. I believe the Kenton has a zero stop.

Even with kenton turrets that conquest will be $300 cheaper than 3-15 HD5. I say go for it!
