I'm looking for a practical hunting scope for short to medium/longish range with a mil-dot reticle. I'm having trouble getting a good idea of what will be useful. It appears you can get a Burris Sig Select 3-10x and have a mil-dot put in for a total of ~$500 plus shipping. You can get a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x with the Rapid reticle for the same. For less than both you can get a Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x with a mil-dot. Spec-wise its a no-brainer, but I'd prefer the US made product and have seen a few Monarchs go bad. How much better is the Conquest glass than the Signature Select? I have a Euro Diamond. I don't need better glass than that. Any practical positive experiences with the Rapid reticle? Sorry this isn't a solely long distance query. This just happens to be one of the few forums where folks actually know what they're typing about.
