Take a look at the new Zeiss V6. I have two HD5 which have been fine, but this scope is way better. Lots of improvements over the HD5 , you get a 30mm tube, better reticle choices, Victory glass on it, and turrets that feel really good when you turn them. It has zero stop, and a revolution counter and 103 MOA of travel. Tracking so far has been accurate. Overall it's what the HD5 should have been.

I just have to say: It is amazing how much money you can dump into a scope and still end up with garbage.

One man's trash is another man's treasure.
My rifle that I drag around hunting on my farm has a Weaver Grand Slam on it. 1 inch tube and parallax adjustment on the end, I love that old scope.

He didn't mention Z5, I have a X5i. Great scope, I'm sure the Z5 is nice too.

Gotcha. The model you quoted in his post would have been a Z5. Thatís why I was questioning.

I guess that all depends on the use lol. The Swarovski Z8 has the best glass I've ever seen in a scope. But would be absolutely awful for long range work lol.

At that price range, I would go ziess all the way. I have 6 different versions of Conquests and I love them all, in fact, that's all I own now.
