    swarovski z6i

    Hi all,

    I am looking to get a swarovski 2.5-15 x 56 z6i, the question is should i get one with ballistic turrets for the odd shot in the 200-250 range on deer/fox or more often target shooting to about 400 yard max.

    I would appreciate your thoughts and opinons on both models but please lets not get into a debate about distance shooting on live game. thanks in advance.

    I have one with the BT I have had many mnay scopes over the years all top end stuff but IMO there isnt a better scope on the market for a stalking rifle,with a lovely ret and dya and night illumination,just enough mag for a extended range shots there superb,excellnet field of view throughout the mag range and stunning optics
    I have my rifle zeroed at 200 then the turret set at 300,400 and 500 yards which works well for me,I wouldnt be without the BT as theres no need to guess,just range find and turn the dial,job done

    I think the price difference is not enough to warrant not having a bt.

    What do you do about windage ? A good friend of mine who stalks and target shoots says they are useless without it!!

    total rubbish,even with a scope with windage adjustments you wouldnt take an extended range shot at deer anyway due to the wind swirl and movement,it would also mean carrying a wind metre
    now on the bench shooting paper you just adjust ain off to suit the wind

    I asked the same question a few months ago, i ended up buying a 5-30 by 50 and love it.

    I agree with the above, the extra for the BT is more than worth it.

    I have mine zeroed at 100 and 175, i then have memorized the the clicks in 25 yard incriments up to 350, i found that the sworovski software was spot on but i think you need to put the correct muzzle in to get the best benifits.

    A friend has one of these on his 25-06 and it is absolutely the best stalking scope I've ever used.

    It was a bit fiddly to set up the BT, basically because we were blokes and didn't read the manual thoroughly at first, but once set up it was and is excellent.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    Hi Cervushunter,

    I've done a couple of write up's about the purchase of my scope.

    I have a Z6I 2.5 - 15 x 56 4AI BT which a purchased a number of months ago.

    It is without doubt the best scope I've used and will last me for a very very long time on one of my set ups.

    The extra money is worth it.. but do your shopping around and forget list prices from the numerous stores and shops around.

    Having spent some considerable time I came across the site below:

    http://www.clunycountrystore.co.uk/i...02e5967216bbea

    I took advantage of the "email now for best offer special price" link and had feed back within a few hours.. a quick phone call and the scope was with me the very next day in Hampshire.

    I saved around 400 from memory which helps alot when your spending this sort of money.

    Great service and just the best price I could find in the UK for a genuine UK imported scope.

    All the best
