The Zeiss Conquest Series is a fine scope. I had a 3-9X40 Conquest with Rapid Z600 and liked it a lot. It was not hard to match my drops to the reticle using the Zeiss online calculator, and field verification. A very nice scope.
The Victory line is even better.
Nothing Leupold or Nikon currently makes (I have not seen the VX-6 yet - It is supposed to be really nice) are the optical equal of either Zeiss line. Also, the Conquest series is Assembled in the good ol' USA.
Thanks for the response. That's all I needed to know. I'm looking at getting one for either my Browning X-Bolt 7mm-08 or my Savage .300 Win Mag. I use the Hornaday Superformance ammo in all my rifles,so it seemed like a good fit.
In your opinion, is the 3.5 x 10 a fit for both guns, or the 4.5 x 14 the better fit for the .300?
