Zeiss or Leupold 4.5-14?
I don't have a scope over 10X and want to move up to a scope with a little more power and an adjustable objective. I am looking for a solid repeatable turret system. The scope is going on a light rifle for now.
My two considerations are the:
Zeiss 4.5-14x44 A0 (1 inch)
Leupold 4.5-14x40 LR side focus (30 mm)
I want to have a elevation turret installed on whatever I select and probably stay with a the standard duplex reticle. I've considered the Zeiss Rapid-z 800 but I am concerned about low light performance or the reticle getting lost in the timber (thick cover)
My main thoughts are that the Leupold is smaller with more eye relief, more adjustability, and a great warranty. The zeiss is larger (bulky), is going to have better low light performance with the larger objective, I like the feel of the adjustments, but I worry about eyepiece clearance with the bolt. I think cost will be about the same between the two.
Any comments that might help me make the decision of which one?
