    Ive got a Z6i 2.5-15x56 BT Gen-2 cant fault it, the dot brightness can be adj for day or night , also got a Leica of the same type can't fault it either.

    I have a couple of Z6i 2.5-15x56 (Gen 1 and Gen 2) and they're both fantastic. I would have thought that would be the ideal choice for your application too.

    Absolutely agree with the above. I have the Z6i 3-18x50 BR-I as I like to play at distance on the range

    Z6i 2nd Gen. 1.7-10x42 with the CDI reticle will be a good choice - it's what I'm looking at! I have the Z6i 1-6x24 as dedicated driven scope on the 9.3x62 Helix, but will be getting the above for the additional .308 barrel for stalking and as a back-up for driven.

    I think it's a good idea to at least get down to near 1 x mag if you can as you want it for driven as well.

    I've got a Z4i 2.5-10 x 56 with the illuminated reticule - really good for both disciplines and cheaper than the Z6i by a good way too - hope that helps

    Or - get swing off's and go for a S&B 8x56 and an Aimpoint for combined money which'll be equivalent to the Swaro's?

    I've got a March 1-10x24 which i bought for driven shooting and when I got it out in the field found that seeing the barrel at 1x mag was really distracting. Result was that I wound up the mag to just enough to not see the barrel which was about 2.5x. I like higher mag for target shooting but don't go higher than 10x for my stalking. As such I would have thought a 2.5-10 or 15 would cover everything you need.

    How do you find the small objective, does it limit you much in actual use?

    i think the Z4i 2.5-10 x 56 is going to fit the bill

    I have a 1.75-6x36mm through which I cannot see the barrel at the lowest power setting, but on my 1.5-6x42mm I can see the front sight until I turn it up to 2.5x. I think that if I have it down to 1.5x, it will be on moving boar in the forest, where I will not notice the blurry front sight behind the 4A reticle. I have two different brand 1.25-4x24 scopes where the barrel is not visible at all. And on the lowest setting, shooting with both eyes open with a #1 post or illuminated dot, these scopes are so natural.

    A 2.5-10x42mm Swaro or any other good quality scope will handle any hunting situation - can't really call it a compromise. For really walking and stalking, especially on a light and balanced rifle, the compact Swarovski 3-9x36 is a good a scope as I have ever used.
    In daylight, the pupils of your eye are only going to be 2.5 to 3.5mm, so you will be getting all the light you need, even in dark woods.
