    Scope choice

    Hi guys I currently have a s&b 8x56 on my 243 and looking for a new scope for my 308 and I'm torn between another s&b 8x56 or a zeiss duralyt 3-12x50 anyone know if it's worth paying the extra for the zeiss ?

    Its used for for stalking and range upto 300 yard

    ​thanks john

    Hi mate just my opinion but I think the reticule on the Zeiss is thinner which suits me but may not suit yourself but that aside if your shooting out to 300yds im sure that extra mag of the Zeiss will come in handy as well.
    Cheers Billy.

    as you know i have a wee 4.5/14x44 zeiss and i have taken it out to 400 with no problems.

    i also had the zeiss 6.5/20x50 and that went all the way out to 600 and almost 700 on the 6mm br.

    cracking scopes for the cash.

    i think the 3/12 may just be a tad low but the reticule is a cracker a bit like the z-plex on the conquests.
