Ziess Conquest Tactical

This will be my first tatical scope I am thinking of buying one in the 4.5 X 14 by 50. Is this a scope worth buying or is there a better one that I am overlooking? It will be going on a christensens arms 300 rum. Thanks

    There is always a better one:( depending on the budget.:(

    Zeiss are good scopes with very good optics and not the best of reticles, in my opinion. They are also a little bit shy on range of elevation adjustment. Something like 45 MOA full range. Therefore it will, in my way of thinking, require mounting so that as much the adjustment as possible is available to you. You will want to center the scope so at center windage is pretty much on target windage wise.

    But, w/a 300 RUM this will most probably be a non issue.....

    There are a couple on ebay right now I have been watching.
    I though about one but decided not because I want at least 16 or 18 power. Happy Bidding.

    The Zeiss Conquest is a great scope. Optically it is outstanding and very hard to beat in the equivalent scope category.

    Chain,

    Short answer is no.

    However, I just learned, or at least think I learned, that the IOR 3-18 can be bought with the reticle in the FFP.
