I have had a 6.5-20x50 Conquest for a few years. I was in need of a scope and picked up a Victory 3-12x56. To tell the truth I cannot tell a difference between the two. I do not regret the victory purchase but do not know if I will be spending the extra money for no reason. The victory is crystal clear, but I cannot tell a difference. Is there something I am missing? PS- what is the point of the reticle getting larger when you zoom in?
