I know, I know, not another help me choose glass thread, but I have a comparison I haven't seen before. I've come into a little extra money and as most on here would do I'm going to use it to buy a new rifle. I'm going to do a CTR 6.5C in a Cadex Field Competition chassis and I need to decide on glass. It'll be a range toy for steel out to 900 yards, no hunting or PRS and I won't be using it for work, just paper and steel at known distances. Current inventory includes a Zeiss HD5 and a PST II so I have some fairly good glass, but nothing great. Not too long ago I bought a used Athlon MIdas TAC for a .223 for the wife and while being impressed with the glass quality for a $500 scope I found I really liked the floating dot APLR reticle. For the CTR I'd like to kick the glass up a notch. Since I won't be dialing on the clock or beating the thing up my concerns lean more toward glass quality and reticle than turrets. With all things considered I've narrowed my choices down to a Cronus BTR w/APLR reticle (really like the reticle and good glass) and a Minox ZP5 with the MR4 reticle (according to koshkin really good glass and the reticle is close enough). The Minox lists for around a grand more, but they regularly show up in the PX for $2200, so a used Minox is only $400 more than a new Cronus. So is the Minox glass quality worth the price difference? Is it a "yea that's better" or "holy shit that's better"?
