    I have in mind this 2 different scopes for a medium range .264 win mag deer rifle.
    The first is a swarovski Z3 4-12X50 BT and the second one is a Kahles 3.5-10X50TDS Reticle. Which one do you believe has better optical quality?? Never owned any of this brands before. I have a Zeiss Victory HT 2.5-10X50 on my deer gun and love it, but it costs more than twice than this 2 so I really can´t afford it right now.

    Well, FWIW, Cheaper than dirt has the Sightron SIII 3.5-10x44 mil/mil for $562! Thats a great deal and right on par with what you're looking for. Weighs under 21oz, is 30mm (bright/crisp) and has great glass and positive adjustments. I'm picking one up for myself for my savage .270. Just a thought...

    I decided to put the Z3 on my new coyote rifle.
    Sako 85 Varmint .243 win
    The 264 win mag borrowed the Zeiss HT from my deer gun which will rest in the safe this season and let´s see if we can save some money next year for a Nice scope for the 264 win mag.
