Hello all, im looking for some advice. I have waited it out for the past few months collecting info and the time is coming where i am drawing a line and putting the money out. Im looking for a scope that will allow me to hunt at ranges 100-500 yards, and target shoot from 100-800 yards. My price range is limited and cant go any higher then the price of these scopes. It will be put on a lighter weight 300. wsm and with the PST the gun will weigh about 8-8.5 lbs and with the zeiss it will weigh closer to 7.5-8 lbs. Not much of a difference. I understand the Glass is better on the zeiss but the feature and customer service on the pst are unbeatable. If you had to choose either the Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44mm with 1" tube or the Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50mm for a long range on targets and game up too 500 yards with practice of course which would you rather. Because of the weight being so similar it doesn't matter to me on which i get cause of weight even though its a carry around hunting/target gun.
