    For those of you using any of the Zeiss RapidZ scopes, I thought I'd post up some information I wasn't able to readily find on this site or other places online. It is the reticle subtension details. The descriptions are in inches at 100 yards. I have always had a very good experience with Zeiss customer service and that is where I got this. Anyway, for those who want it in MOA, the conversion is pretty straight forward. I hope this helps. The scope is not perfect, but it has been very well thought out. One thing I'm not nuts about is the .35" thick crosshair but that can be argued as well. For my taste it is a little thick for sighting in at 200 yards and shooting really tight groups because it nearly covers a 1" bullseye, but in a hunting application the thicker cross hair is nice.

    NICE! Thanks! I like this better than zooming the scope down to match partcular ballistics. I will have to thy this out.

    And welcome to the:D forum BTW....

    Do you happen to have this in a PDF file? I can't read all the subtension details for the Rapid Z1000. I just picked one up used and would love this info.
    Or should I just call Zeiss and see if they'll send me this info?

    Thanks
