Hey guys i think im going to buy a 22-250 and i have been looking at zeiss scopes.  Was just wondering if the rapid-z 600 would match up with this caliber...I  realize that they have a rapid varminter reticle but i just dont have the money to spend on that one.  Any suggestions or help would be great! Thanks

assuming here your talking about the extra 200 for the target knobs (turrets) on the 6.5x20 or something vs the regular hunter knobs with covers. one big advantage of the rapid z and other bdc reticles is less reliance for the target knobs. in a way they antiquated target dial in needs. the regular covered hunter are lower in profile and snag less and you will be forced to use the hold over. if your hold over is several clicks more or less than the reticle indicates simply click them on the standard. so unless your doing a lot of mil type hold hover stuff, which the conquest really isn't good at anyway don't even worry about it go for the lower cost one you have selected and have fun.

I realize it might be too late, but if you want to check out the site of the folks that created the "Z" that Zeiss is licensing--http://www.rapidreticle.com.  Interesting site.

I bought one of these Pride & Fowler scopes for my CZ 22WMR.  Works great, holdover marks and windage are right on.  Yes, I've been known to try something new...this technology works.

This may also be too late, but I'll try anyway. You can use the calculator on Zeiss's website to see where the retical marks will hit with the caliber and bullet weight you want to shoot. This link will take you to Zeiss's sport optics page with a link to the Rapid-Z calculator at the bottom. It seems to me a 4.5-14x44 may be in order with the Rapid-Z 800 to give enough magnification to be useable and make the marks line up close to 100 yd. increments. At a setting of 12.46 or 12.5 this would be very useful for something like a 40 gr. vmax on prairie dogs or such vermin.  Although with a 50 gr. Accutip-v a Rapid-Z 600 3-9 scope should hit within 25 yds. of 100 yd. increments, when set on 9x. Hope I'm not too late.

Hardly. I'm merely a cog in a big wheel, Sir.
 
PM Brady, David or Stephanie and ask them for help.
