I'm looking to replace the 6x42 leupy with a S&B, Zeiss or Swaro.  This will be sitting on a custom 270 WSM.  I'm thinking about 2.5-10x42 with and plex/duplex reticle.  The scope cannot have illumination.

S&B Summit, Zeiss Victory or Swaro Z6?

Would it be worth it to consider spending a bit more and look at the Leica ER series as well?  A ballistic reticle would be nice.

NEW ZEISS can be found much cheaper than Z6

If you are going to keep the rifle for a long time the Zeiss or the  Leica will be worth the price. I have worked with a lot of Zeiss optics and have used a Leica camera they always performed flawlessly. I had a Leica camera for year and sold it recently for more than I paid for it, it just the upfront price.
