I have the same Conquest except with the Z-plex reticle. The glass is far better than the Leupold and the mechanics have been dead on and repeatable. I don't think it's as tough as the Leupold, but it fits my needs. Can't say anything about the Sightron.

1. Conquest
2. Sightron
3. Anything other than a Leupold product.


I do not (can not) recommend Leupold.

I rank the Conquest higher for 2 reasons: 1.  I owned that scope and know it is fantastic, 2.  I have not seen or played with that particular Sightron.  I did shoot a 6-24 S3 and it was a great scope for bench work.

As for 1,000 yard shooting, I wouldn't worry too much about tht yet.  600 is hard enough, 800 harder still, and 1,000 can be simply demotivating.

# 4 is usually for fast acquisition,like in hunting.You might want to look at the Z plex for long distance as said above.What ever you choose good luck.

Sightron 4.5-14x56? 

Is that a new model of some sort?  I am not aware of Sightron offering that configuration.

That might explain why I haven't seen one.
