I was out with an acquaintance the other evening and got no end of earache from him over the Zeiss Diatal-C 4x32 "museum piece" as he called it on my elderly .308. I love it for woodland roe and fallow because it is light, low over the bore, crystal clear, bombproof (never had to adjust it in years), has a wide field of view and I can see the target all the way through the shot and follow-through. I also like to stalk in close and have never taken a beast more than about 130 yds away, so it does me fine. Then I thought about it and realised that its a good while since I saw another one on a stalking rifle. So, am I the only one left? My Dad and his pals used nothing else 40 years ago - in the woods and on the hill!
Anyone else still using one or is it really me who is the "museum piece"? (I'm not anti big scopes - I've got a Pecar Champ 6x45 on my HMR!!!)
