Zeiss Conquest vs Trijicon Accupoint

I am thinking of purchasing one of these scopes to put on my 6.5 Creedmoor. It's between the Zeiss conquest HD5 5-20x50 with a mil-dot reticle and a Trijicon Aacupoint TR23-2 5-20x50 with mil-dot reticle. Any one who has used either would like your opinion of each. Any one who has any info on their function or glass quality please post. Thanks Tom

Mix matching turret/reticle........I would pass on each. Decent glass on each. Not a ton of adjustment on either but because you are shooting a 6.5 i guess that wouldn't be a big deal depending on how far you were wanting to shoot.

You may need to rethink your options. The Zeiss HD5 5-25x50 is not available with a mildot reticle. The old Conquest 6.5-20x50 is the only Conquest or HD5 currently available with a mildot.

Re: Zeiss Conquest vs Trijicon Accupoint

I don't have an HD5, but I have a Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 and I love that scope! You can't even tell that it's a 1" tube, compared to most 30mm tubes. If it was a 30mm tube, would be the only improvement I'd make on that scope, b/c it would be letting in so much light with a 30mm tube that you'd be able to coykte hunt at midnight over an open field.

I have a Zeiss 6.5x20 and I can tell you it is the clearest and best scope that i have. I have a Leupold 8.5x25 and I can see bullet holes at 100 yards better with the Zeiss scope. In the future I plan on having more Zeiss scopes.

Re: Zeiss Conquest vs Trijicon Accupoint

I have the HD5 Zeiss 5x25x50mm its my best scope . BUT I also have a Weaver tactical 3x15x50mm FFP and I think the glass on my Weaver is a very very close 2nd.

Re: Zeiss Conquest vs Trijicon Accupoint

The clearsst scope I own, is my Kahles Helia KX. My next clearest scopes are my 2 Zeiss scopes, and next after that would be, believe it or not, my Konus M-30 8.5-32x52, Nitrex 3-9x50, and Simmons Aetecs. The Nitrex is a $300-400 scope and is incredibly clear and crisp! It has been an excellent scope for me for years. It handled the recoil from my 7STW for years, and stayed dead-on zero'd the whole time! Now it resides on my old Ruger 77 skeleton stock (ultralight) 7mm Rem Mag, since the Simmons on it couldn't handle that much recoil for that many years from a gun that lightweight. Now it sits on a .17 HMR, since the scope is still good, but needs an easier life.

But I'm here to tell you...For the money, those Zeiss Conquests just can't be beat, IMO!
