    I am after a scope for my 28 Nosler and have narrowed it down to the 3-18 Swarovski Z6 and X5.
    Does anybody have experience with these 2 side by side.

    My scope of choice between those two would be the X5.

    I have both. The Z6 is a 2-15 x 44 with BT, the X5 is 5-25x 56. Both non illuminated. The clarity in both is equal. If you are gonna shoot way out there I would go with the X5. The deal camera land is running right now is the way to go. 1800 for a demo.

    Thanks for the replys.
    My 28 Nosler should get out to around 750 yards with a 200 yard zero and keep within the elevation limitations of the Z6. So would the X5 be worth the extra $900?
