I went to the store and can get a VX-3 with Boone & Crocket reticle 3.5x10x40 or Zeiss 3x9x40 with plex for the same price, which is the better scope?

Myself, I like the Zeiss Conquest with Z-plex.

The price I found was $499 for the ones mentioned above. If I go any higher in price the cost of a divorce lawer puts them out of my range.Whacko

I prefer the Conquest but the Leupy is fine also.

The Conquest 3-9x40 Z-600 is usually 575, and has a $75 rebate right now, which would put it right at your price point.

The Zeiss by a wide margin ... better clarity, resolution, contrast, and low light. Jet black reticles.  All the VX-3's I looked at had a golden brown reticle, very hard to see in the timber.

Just to be a counter-point to the Zeiss fans (of which I am a member), the Leupie will provide better bolt clearance if mounted low on a 90 degree bolt travel rifle (e.g. Rem 700.)

Both are good scopes, but for my money I would probably prefer the Conquest.
