Ok first i apologize for even asking this question but i haven't been on in a while and now for the first time in a while am ready to make a purchase! Looking for some new glass going on a 7mm RUM. Trying to keep it in the ballpark of 500$ using it nearly exclusively for hunting so low light conditions are key etc.. Also any mounting recommendations being the caliber provides a pretty good thump. It used to be i that price range the Zeiss Conquest but from what i read but they're hard to come by these days. Thanks in advance i know this question is pretty common.

For great low light usage, I'd be searching for a Trijicon Accupoint. Keep an eye on the Sample List here for great deals on trade-ins, refirbs and discontinued models. Get the best glass you can afford (along with a functional reticle). Good luck in your search. Super

Thanks for the responses. Are the Trijicon worth the extra $$$? Anyone??

I used Warne mounts and rings on my 300 WBY mag.

Either of the two Leupolds I've noted are as good as my Conquests

For low light conditions most definitely yes.

The trijicon is solid advice. Mounted up in a set of talley's, you'd be good to go.

I have had a Trijicon Accupoint 3-9 X 40 (with the green triangle) for several years. It has been 100% reliable.
