    Not to take away from my original suggestion, but yes, these are both very good examples. I own one of each, and am very happy with them so far.

    Here is a pretty good analysis I did, and some comparison.

    IMO I don't think you can beat the Vortex PST series for the money. I sold my Leupold MK4 and would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 with Target turrets. Very tough to beat Zeiss Glass. The tracking is excellent.

    I had the Zeiss, nice glass but the 1" tube didn't give my .308 enough elevation to get to 1,000 yards.
    Food for thought.

    Zeiss just brought on some new designers and some major brass so I think we'll be seeing a new developement in the zeiss line. Hopefully they do bring in some 30mm tube options in the conquest line.

    Re: $1000 Rifle Scope

    I wish like hell my 4-16 pst had better glass.

    I really liked the reticle, had some form of zero stop, ill reticle, but the glass was very dark. I felt lucky that the vendor accepted it back and gave me a refund, rather than sending it to vortex for a similar replacement. For what it is worth the vendor looked at/through it upon receiving it and said it looked fine. Mine and 2 other sets of eyes noticed a 4200 and millet trs-1 as having being noticeably "brighter".

    If I never hunted it might have been fine I guess.

    Funny I was thinking of getting a Mk4 4.5-15x50 but decided on another NXS. Glass is comparable to my 2.5-10x50 4200, but not really better.
