I will hopefully be in the market for a new scope in the next few months (if my flat ever sells!) and have thought that the new Zeiss Conquest 3-12x56 would be a good option (I'd pair it with a range finder for accurate practicing and for longer range shots). As I intend to use it on my .243 mainly for foxing and a bit of deer stalking I was thinking the ASV model would be good, allowing me to practice out to longer ranges and then when suitable, range longer shots on foxes.
From what I can work out the ASV only gives a guide on general bullet trajectories (different rings or stickers) and how many clicks needed to correct the POI so I'd have to work out exactly where the rounds go at different ranges and put in a little table etc anyway.
My question is, is the ASV/BDC turret accurate enough or good enough to use as it is (out to 400m 4-6 inch targets) and with a max of 12x mag or would I be better off with a scope with 'proper' target turrets (SIIISS 6-24x50 LRD for example) and get out practicing and work out the drops at given distances? Nearly all of my shooting is done in daylight or under a lamp so the twighlight factor being better by the German scopes isn't such an issue.
