New to forum.  I am in the process of purchasing a scope that will be used for hunting and competition up to and including 1000 yards.  I would really like some input.  I have been looking at the Zeiss Diavari 6-24 X 56 or (big brother) Hensoldt 6-24 X56 scopes. (I maybe biased because I currently have Conquest line and like clarity and duribility).  The matching rifle is a Remington Sendero (heavy 26" barrel) in 300 Winchester.  I am confined to wheelchair (40 years now) and 600-700 yard shots on "critters" are not uncommon.  Will the mildot system offered on the Hensoldt work at long ranges?  Any ideas on either scope and/or reticle combo that will ideally work?

Mildots are for ranging distances of known target sizes.  They can also be used for holdover.  It is not the mildots themselves that is going to really benefit you.  You will be better off using a laser range finder for getting the distance and then dialing in your shots with the target styles turrets.  Which the Hensoldt has. 

Premier, or S&B are also top of the line scopes you may want to look at.

Welcome to OT.
Are you wanting to use a reticle primarily for distance shooting?
If so, I would suggest a MOA reticle.

Isn't that kinda personal?  For me mils are easier to range with and not by a small margin.

I wasn't suggesting MOA for ranging, but for shooting.
I was trying to figure out why he wanted a multi-dash or dot reticle.
From his post I assumed he was talking about shooting, not ranging.
Just trying to figure that out with the question.
FWIW-It is easier for me to range in MOA.
Part of that depends on the reticle.
Whichever reticle that has the smallest subtension will allow you to be more critical/accurate when reticle ranging.
