I deer hunt from a stand that overlooks a farm field on one side, and a deep thicket that the deer seem to" stage up" and wait till dark to feed. I like to stay after legal hours to see if any trophy animals are on the farm. I want to buy 1 top end optic to put on my Kimber 7mm-08, 250yds is max range. I was leaning to the Zeiss victory HT but people seem to like Meopta r2's just as much. My question is this, what would I be able to see with the Zeiss that I can't see with the r2 ? Or a Swaro z6 for that matter? I can use any scope to view animals in the cut corn field but the thickets get real dark early, so I want all the help I can get. Set and forget type scope is what I'm after. Thank you much

Nothing.  Meopta R1s and R2s are right there with the best Zeiss and Swaros. 

Also some good binos with a large exit pupil may be worth it for you as well.  You will be able to see a lot better in low light with those than with a scope.  I have some Zeiss Victory binos, and a Swaro Z6 scope, I can see things in low light way better with my binos.

Once you have settled on the glass, the reticle becomes paramount. I would certainly look at a 4A, #4 or anything similar for your application. I find the plex types lacking when shooting into heavy cover and in low light.
