Zeiss or Trijicon for first long range rifle, looking for guidance.
I'm looking for some help in deciding glass on my first long range set up from those that know. I have a Winchester 70 coyote lite in .270wsm that I am settting up for antelope, mule deer, and maybe long range whitetail. I have narrowed the field to the Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x50 with turrets, Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 with turrets, or the Trijicon Accupoint 5-20x50. I currently have Leupold, Burris, Meopta, and Zeiss on other rifles and I am really fond of Zeiss. I have read all the reviews that I can find, and tried to compare the Trijicon with the Zeiss at a Cabelas, but inside a store really didn't tell me much.
For hunting, what would you recommend? As for range, I'd like to be able to shoot as far as I can ethically. The rifle is NIB, but I handload, and hope to be able to get under (hopefully, well under) 1 moa. If I find I can only shoot moa to 400, well that will be my range. I am hopefull for 600.
Will I be better off with 4.5-14 or 6.5-20? I have heard nothing but good with Zeiss, but Trijicon seems well respected.
I really appreciate insight from all the collective experience here.
My long range experience (besides woodchucks) is an antelope in Wyoming last year at 344 yds with a lightweight 270 with a 2.5-8 leupold and 4.5lb trigger. I plan on being a whole lot more prepared this year.
Thanks for your help.
