I am looking for scopes for two rifles.  
A .257 Wetherby Mag. 
And a 7mm Rem.

Both will be used for hunting primarily open country and some occasional elk hunting in the Rockies.

Hey Big Dog,  I believe that Minox to be a new product I am not familiar with it.  As a matter of fact I am not familiar with that Bushnell either.  Just what I read and there is plenty here to read @ it.  But I am familiar with Zeiss Conquest.  Best bang for an optic buck I ever spent.  Many opinions here soon to chime in. Better than mine too. I am a big Zeiss fan. Check your private message box.Top Secret

Zeiss Conquest would be my choice primarly because it not only has good glass but dark, contrasting reticles.
 
HTH,

Can't go wrong with Zeiss.  But I must confess I too and interested in the new Minox scopes.  Why don't you get one and do a review for the rest of us?
 
P.S. the one I am interested in is the 3x15x42.  So, you should get that one.
