I agree that you have to spend a lot to beat a Zeiss Conquest. Good alternatives do exist at about the same price, but I would feel no compelling need to look elsewhere.
Assuming you're shooting a high BC hunting bullet, that MV should get you out to 1,200 yds on deer-size game (1,000 ft-lbs). Bullet drop is ~30 MOA, depending on altitude.
Until your smith mounts a scope with a centered reticle, you won't know the boresight alignment of your base and rings. Assuming your rings are within 10 MOA of the bore, you could need 52 moa of vertical adjustment using a 20 MOA base. The 45 MOA elevation adjustment of the Conquest 6.5-20X50 won't quite get you there if you want a 1,000-yd zero.
If your smith is willing to dial in the bias on the base, then the +/- 10 MOA boresight tolerance goes down to less than +/- 5 MOA, and that scope will get you to 30 MOA no problem. Otherwise, I would go with the 4.5-14X50, which has 68 MOA elevation adjustment.
If shots beyond 1,000 yds would be rare for you, then the 4.5-14X mag range should be sufficient. 4.5 mag gives you 44% more field of view for a quick short range shot. Glare performance would be better too.
