Thread: Which long range scope?

  1. #1

    Which long range scope?


    Im in the market for a long range scope and wondered your thoughts. I will be using it at 600m and occasionally on the 1000m. I have a friend who has offered me the zeiss conquest 6.5-20x50 but before i take it from him i thought i would ask some opinions.

    I know some scopes run out of elevation adjustment, do you think this scope could cope out to 1000m?

    It will be mounted most prob on .308

    Probaly not.go on a website that sells them and you should be able to find out elevation and windage range.if its on its limit on adjustments a 20 moa picattiny rail is what your will need.155 grainers need around 30 moa elevation and 38 moa upwards for 175 grainers.40 odd moa when really cold.hope this helps.atb swaro

    could you explain the 20moa rail to me, sorrry i am quite new to this. does this mean the scope is tilted to increase adjustment of the scope to favour one direction??

    If i was going to be shooting 1000 yards i would want a good quality scope 30+Mag

    i sort of think that type of thing is a specialist area that u have to choose your components carefully

    A zeiss conquest is not a target orientated scope. I would certainly not be considering one for my 600-1000 yard rifle.

    Sightron and secondhand nightforce are the top choices right now.

    thanks scotch_egg, i did have a little look at the sightrons the other day, do you think i could pick up a half decent one with a 600 budget??

    I use a 20 and a 24 mag scope for 1000yds though 32 mag would get you closer too the target, also need a scope with target turrets, pic rail gives you a little more elevation adjustments, a rifle with 26 inch barrel and longer better suited to 1000yds
