    Morning Paul

    I can only half helpful here.

    I have been using the Victory HT 3-12x56. As it happens, I have ASV+ on this scope and I do use the dialling facility quite a bit. I chose this scope because I suspected that it would be good in low light and the range of magnification would allow me to stalk in woodland on low mag and then take extended shots at higher mag.

    The low light performance is impressive. I often find that I run out of time before I run out of light. I also have a Zeiss 6-24x56 FL Diavari and, as well as that scope performs, it is easy to see the difference in low light performance when looking through the Victory HT.

    I would, however, say that the Victory HT would probably make a poorer choice for a 1000 yard scope. I suspect you would run out of elevation and the lack of parallax adjustment and relatively low magnification would be a handicap. IMO of course!

    I can't comment on the Conquest DL. I have a 2-8x42 about to go on a rimfire, but haven't had the chance to play yet.

    Hope that helps.

    regards


    Ian

    Paul, I have a Zeiss 3-12x56 Victory HT with ASV+ fitted. The Height adjustment I think is around 70 clicks (from stop to stop) meaning that on my .243 I could shoot out to 902 yards, or on my 30-06 out to 738 yards. I hasten to say, that this would only be on a Range and not on a live quarry. Hopefully your 6.5x47 can reach out to a 1000yrds within 70 clicks.

    Ive got the 4-16x50 victory diavari on my 47lap, perfect stalking scope with ret 60. You will need approx 85-90
    clicks for 1000y, depending on your mv. I wouldnt use mine at 1000y, you wont be competative so whats the point. The 6-24x56 with .5 cm clicks would be a better choice imho.

    i have clicked it up 30 clicks for perfect shots on fallow.
