Zeiss Conquest vs Vortex Viper PST

Hey im looking for yalls input on these two scopes. its going on a Win 243 and will mainly be used for varmit hunting and paper punching. i have a conquest target on a diff. rifle and i like it, but sometimes its hard to tell which hash mark ur on. it has a 1 inch tube so there isnt a whole lot of elevation adj.

i like the PST EBR1 reticle and it has more elevation adj. but i dont know how the glass is compaired to conquest and the tracking.

i have a chance to get the conquest cheaper than the PST so im kind of stuck on which one i should get. i will be shooting up to around 800 yds. thanks for yalls help.

Re: Zeiss Conquest vs Vortex Viper PST

I have a PST 2.5-10x44 and a Zeiss 3-9x40. Optical quality is a dead heat, my amateur eyes can't tell the difference. The PST tracks perfectly, I haven't yet checked the Zeiss.

There are so many great scopes < $700 now its a hard choice, but no matter which scope you choose you won't be disapointed.

There is no contest. Get the 6-24x50mm PST FFP scope. This is the one I have and love it.
