I'm replacing the Leupold Vari-X III 3.5x10 scope on my .25-06 deer rifle, and have just about decided on a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44, probably with the Z-Plex reticle since it unfortunately doesn't come with the Rapid Z 600, just the 800 or 1000 versions. For the money (around $750) that I expect to spend on the Zeiss, are there any other scopes that I should be considering also? Which reticle would be recommended for the Conquest? Would the Rapid Z 800 be overkill for my needs? I hunt woods and open areas, typically shooting out to about 250 yards, but want the higher magnification capability to supplement my Swaro 7x42 binoculars, and to shoot out to 400-500 yards since I'm now using a 1500 ARC range-finder to know exact distances.
