Zeiss Conquest Turrets

I have a Savage in a 7mmRemMag that I want to be able to shoot out to 800yrds or maybe a little more. Right now I have a Zeiss Conquest in 4.5-14x44 with the Reticle #8. Was thinking of putting target turrets on it. Would this be a scope to start with or should I get something else? Who should I get the turrets from? This is my hunting rifle and everything that I have ever harvested has been within 500yrds. I want to be able to atleast target shoot with this to the said distance for now and if I get confident enough try it at hunting.

Re: Zeiss Conquest Turrets

That would be a perfect scope to use.
I have one in 4.5-14x50 with target turrets and it is a very nice unit.

If my Dad at age 67 could hit antelope at 512 and 816 yards with a 3-9 Nikon this past year I suspect you'll do fine with 4.5-14.

Re: Zeiss Conquest Turrets

I think Zeiss will retrofit a Conquest with a turret. Here is a picture of a turret Zeiss put on a Diavari



Once you get the turret retrofited by Zeiss you can buy an aftermarket turret from Kenton or someone else that is cailbrated to your load

Cost was $75.00

Re: Zeiss Conquest Turrets

Does that mean that Zeiss does not calibrate the turret to my load? What is involved in calibrating? What do I have to do on my end?

Re: Zeiss Conquest Turrets

Zeiss will put on a generic turret with marks that do not have a relationship to your load. Then you get an aftermarket turret from Kenton or others that you have had them engrave to your needs. I think you give them your ballistics and type of scope and they work it out.

But you have to have Zeiss retrofit your scope to accept the turret first. Some scopes you can just buy the turret but with Zeiss you have to get the retrofit first if you have the "Hunter" turrets on your Zeiss scope and do not presently have a "Target" turret.

That is my understanding

Re: Zeiss Conquest Turrets

Does it have return to zero stop on the target turret?

Re: Zeiss Conquest Turrets

No

The only return to zero with an internal stop where you can not lose your zero that I have is a couple of Kahles MultiZeros
