Well...time being of the essence I went ahead and mounted the scope per Zeiss customer service. They've been great to deal with. I will say that the Conquest has incredibly clear  glass with great resolution and contrast. I sighted it in today and my groups shrunk  (shrank?) from 2 inches to about .5 at a hundred yards. I don't know how many rounds I've hand loaded trying to shrink my groups and it was the 4200's loose reticle the whole time. With the Conquest I was shooting cloverleafs 1.5 inches high and .5 inches left of center. I moved 2 clicks right. My group dropped to center. I didn't argue since I'll be sending this scope back after this season anyway. I chose not to mess with it although I would have prefered just to move it to the right .5 inches and there was a storm rolling in. I leveled the reticle with a laser level on the wall at 10 yards so I now the adjustment was right. I shot six rounds, cleaned the bore, and shot six more and the P.O.I. never changed.  I'm happy for now.

Wow.  First I am surprised they are down with you using for a hunt before returning it.  Second, I wish you good luck for your hunt.  I hate going afield with any question marks.

They practically insisted I go ahead and use it. They, Zeiss CS, stated they didn't want me to lose any time waiting for a replacement. I had two different CS reps e-mail me apologizing for the troubles and vowing to make it right. They're even sending a call tag so I won't have to pay shipping.
