Has anyone used this out to 800 yards? If so how accurate does it really work?
If you follow the instructions and set it up properly it'll put you within the kill zone on deer and larger sized game pretty handily.
It really does help however if you will go out and then shoot it at known ranges so you can fine tune by holding over/under as needed.
I went on Zeiss's web site and looking at the 3.5-10x44 with the 800 z.
The yards and bars are close but it said best at 8 power. I was wondering if i could see the recticle late afternoon right before dark at the 8 power shooting at something 600 yards away.
Shouldn't be a problem.
I do a lot of low light shooting with my conquests with the 44mm obj and they gather plenty of light. I can usually see the game and pick up my reticles long after I can no longer see them with the naked eye.
The conquest 44mm obj light wise is the equal of the 50mm leupolds on a 1" tube.
I have a Z-800 on my .257 Weatherby. It shoots too fast for the lines to match up. Even at 14 power my trajectory doesn't match up to the yardages in the reticle. I had to go out and verify my drops according to the bars. Now I carry a range card that fits my trajectory. Here's what I came up with.
Bar 3- 333 yards
Bar 4- 462 Yards
Bar 5- 585 yards
Bar 6- 707 yards
Bar 7- 828 yards
Bar 8- 946 yards
The Z-800 has great glass which makes it a great low-light scope. I only have one problem with the Zeiss Conquest, the crosshairs are a bit thick for longer ranges.
There is a lot of distance between those bars. Do you just bracket your query between the bars and let it fly if its between those yardages? I'm a turret twiddler. Not too experienced on using reticules.
You adjust your hold over with each of the cross bars baed on known performance and known range.
If your range is 1/3 less than the space occupied by two bars you hold appropriately with the last range bar above it.
It is much faster than spinning turrets, but less precise.
I agree with Wildrose. In addition to that, the reticle has one or more subtention lines between each bar.
I agree with the cross hair problem. I wish I would have looked through one before I bought mine. Hazards of web shopping I guess. I also don't like the adjustment on the eye piece as you can't get a Butler Creek on it.
