    Schmidt & Bender Zenith FD7 2,5-10x56. I have been leaning towards Zeiss but when I got the chance to look through the S&B a few days ago I will definitely get that one. The best scope I have ever seen.

    I know I won't be the only one to say this, for the quality and service you will get, it's hard to beat a Leupold. Especially for the money.

    World record, get a nikon Monarch. The glass blows Leupold away. 4x12x40 would be perfect for you.

    I used Leupold for years, but I like the nikon so much better. I'm reluctant to buy a Nikon tactical, but that wouldn't matter to you. Go into a store and compare them side by side.

    I'll go with Bill Bailey
    Leupold may not seem as popular these days, but I've seen many "better scopes" not hold up as well.

    You say low light conditions at no more than 350 yards?

    I'd get a European, 30mm tube and a 56mm objective in 2.5X10, with good eye relief. I like a Kahles, for the money.

    Good hunting. LB
