I have been researching a scope for my 700 vs .308 I plan to shoot 100 to possibly 1000yrds, but maily between 4-600yrds at targets and ocasional varmits.
I have narrowed my search down to these scopes in no particular order.

NIkon 4-16x50 Tactical
Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50
Leopold 6.5-20x50 Mark 4 LR/T
XOTIC 4-16x56mm

Any other suggestions or comments welcome
Thanks Tanner

For the distances you are looking at, I'd get the most magnification which would be the Zeiss or the Leupold.  Both have the same magnification, both the same size objective it would come down to personal taste in optics.  Personally, I'd go Zeiss better optics in my opinion and it costs less.

Thanks for the replies and welcome!  I have had or have Nikons and Leopolds, but never a Zeiss besides a spotting scope my uncle has.  I know both Leupold and Nikon are great glass and I hear Zeiss is even a step above them, but not sure about the conquest line.  I do like the Nikon Tactical, but a part of me feels a 4-16 might not be enough.  I have shot deer with my leopold 4.5-14 at 400 but not sure about trying a 600-700 yard shot at a coon with anything less than a 20 power.  WHat do you guys think?

Thanks
Tanner
