I got this new Zeiss Diavari 2.5-10x42 with #4 reticle, lotutec coating. Shot a few shots with it. Tracks great, optics flawless...

I love the action you have that on.  I also use those mounts.  I would like to see some pics of the entire rifle!!  Smile

Nice scope and action!  Hard to beat a Stiller Predator/ Zeiss Diavari combination for a hunting rifle!  Given the Predator normally comes in matte stainless, is the black finish Teflon, Duracote, Cerakote, or...?
 
Looks like a McMillan stock as best I can tell.  I remember that OT member "Sako75" has a rifle just like that one.  I think he had a Leupold VX-7 sitting on his, though.

LaughThis Zeiss is definately a better scope than those leupy's. You made the right choice 308WIN. Would have been hard for me to choose between the Z6 at that price and this one but I agree with you I do like the FFP reticle. That price on that Z6 was good though. Either way better than a Leupy VX3.

Yes I know it is similar though. I do and don't like FFP just depends on what you are using it for IMO. That gun and scope combo is pretty nice little setup.
