Considering a Conquest of Big Sky, but have concerns about the bolt clearance with the Zeiss. Have a 700 and the bolt throw is fairly high. Am I going to need to hold it in a certain way so I don't bang my knuckles (or possibly even the bolt) against the scope? How much clearance is there with Butler Creek scope caps? Have the Talley LW rings on there and mounting it higher is not an option with me to give more clearance. Anyone have any pics of the clearance with their 700s and Conquests?
 
On the other hand, may go with the Big Sky, where clearance won't be an issue.
 
Thanks

I'll be interested to hear from someone with a 700. Mine is on a Wby Vanguard in low Talley lightweights. While the bolt clearance is fairly close, I've had no problems yet.

Why would you have an issue with one scope over another unless maybe a 30mm versus a 1''

I have a 3X9X40 Conquest and it works just fine on a Remmy 700 BDL

Conquest 3-9X40 on a 700.  I probably could have gotten by with low, but I use medium Leupold rings.  Great clearance, and comes up very well.

I have a 3-9x Conquest right now on a 700 with Talley LW lows and it is not a problem.
