I am going on an Ibex hunt this year where the shots are expected to be between 200-500 yards. We are also going to hunt wolves and we plan to call them in close if possible (buddy is taking his recurve). Hunt is going to be in elevations between 9000 ft up to 14000 ft. I live a sea level and am working on getting in shape (no real weight to lose but being skinny and being in shape are two different things). Rifle its going on: Rifles Inc Strata in 270 WSM (5 1/4 lbs) Anyway, here is what I am looking for... Low profile MOA dials/turrets, Zero Stop required Wide Range of Magnification Excellent build quality (gun will be in horse scabbard most of the time) Identify and estimate deer sized animal at 500 yards Light weight for hunting (anything over 1.5 lbs is excluded) These are the scopes I am looking at: Leupold VX-3 4.5-14x50mm Long Range Pros: CDS MOA windage and MOA elevation dials (low profile w/Zero Stop), Cost Cons: 19 ft FOV at 4.5, 30mm tube Leupold VX-3 VX-3 6.5-20x40mm Long Range Pros: CDS MOA windage and MOA elevation dials (low profile w/Zero Stop), Cost Cons: I feel 6.5 might be too strong for the low end of a hunting scope, 30mm tube Swarovski Z5 3-18x44 w/BT - Custom MOA Turret Pros: Swarovski Quality, 5x zoom range, 30ft FOV, 1" tube Cons: Price, No windage turret or aftermarket options Minox ZA5 4-20x50 SF Pros: Great mag range, 1" tube, cost Cons: No experience with minox scope - quality? rugged?, Not sure if it has zero stop or MOA markings Any others I am not mentioning? I dont care if a scope is made in the US, Germany, Argentina, Canada or elsewhere, it just needs to be good quality.
