Hi,

 

First time poster here. I decided on a Zeiss Conquest 3x9x40.

I see that they offer different reticles:

 

a)  #4

b) Zplex

c) FCH

 

Which will be best for the deer hunting in 100 to 200 yards open and wooded areas?

There may be occasional 100 meters practice/target shooting at the local range.

 

If it matters I have a Steyr SBS Tactical HB in 308.

 

Thanks

 

Chris

Welcome to The OT, Chris.

 

Definately not a fine cross hair for the deer hunting portion of your shooting.

 

I had and liked the ZPlex, but the German #4 is still my favorite hunting reticle.

#4 and don't look back - it's a wonderful thing in the lowlight w/out blocking your view.

#4 or plex.  And I just send my Conquest back to Zeiss to be fitted with a target turret up top.  Though, if your max range is 200 yards, you'll do fine without one.  But a BDC on that scope makes it a long-range piece of gear too.
