I have used or currently own the Minox ZA 5, Swarovski z3 and z5 and a bunch of different Conquest. I don't have much or any experience with the others. IMO the Conquest are hard to go wrong with I absolutely love them. Never had a single problem with any of mine and I have had a pile of them.

my top two choices as of now are the z3 and a conquest.

I think i'm going to buy the z3, either for her gun, if not, i'll use it on mine. I have one lined up for $689.
It is 4-12x50 with the BRH reticle.

My other top choice is the conquest 4.5-14x44 with rapid z1000.
I can get that one at $629.

I am curious if one will be that much better than the other. From what i have heard and read it seems like the z3 is clearer. it is a hair lighter than the zeiss. I am leaning towards the swaro, but both scopes seem like they would perform great for hunting.

Matt, I read your article when you first wrote it and it was very informative and helpful. I actually have a PST on my .22-250, but after reading your article i haven't stopped looking at the z3. I think this is what we'll end up with..

I have had Leupolds and Conquests on my rifles and just recently sold the Leupolds and replaced them with the Conquests
