I have a Shepherd Scope it has never lost zero in 15 years of hunting it has fully multi coated optics I have the 3 to 10 x 40 model how ever they now have 4 to 16 x 50 models . They were used by military for years and you have a duel reticle system and first focal plane range finder along with graduation at top and right side that shows how many clicks of wind age or Elevation you have dialed from zero so you can’t forget you Dialed off zero . They won’t break the bank either . At around $850.00Long of the short, my VX6 HD took a dump at the moment of truth and I missed a 370" bull. Looking for something that can track, and handle the minor bumps of a mountain hunting rifle( I don't expect any scope to get tomahawked and hold zero) and maintain zero. Would prefer to keep it under 28 oz... I know its nothing special and the glass in the VX6HD is much better but my 6-24 gen1 one PST has never failed me in 7 years of hard mountain hunting and its had its fair share of accidental spills(like falling down the mountain with it strapped to my pack) and never shifted more than an inch off zero after even the biggest mishap on the mountain. So basically looking for the reliability and weight I've experienced with that scope but looking to upgrade to better glass and turrets while not being heavy. I've looked at the Zeiss v4&v6 The Mark 5, NX8 and a few others. I want at least 18 if not more 20-25 on the top end. What lighter scopes have you guys had good luck with and recommend? I'll give up a little in glass for durability but it would be nice to have my cake and eat it too.
