Does anybody know how this scope in 3-12x56 compares to the Zeiss Conquest?  Thanks.  Drummer

i would put it slightly above the zeiss conquest.
 
definitely the best 3-12x56 VALUE out there.
 
get a #4 reticle and be amazed.
 
i have a 56mm meostar and it's really bright and crisp in the lowlight.
 
i have owned zeiss, monarch, elite 4200's, and several other brands - but this is
just as good as any for the money.

Any problemas with eye relief on the Meopta's you've encountered, Johnny??

Eye relief is a concern.  This scope will go on a Remmy model Seven SS magnum in 7mm SAUM.  It kicks about 18 lbs.  50% more than a similar .308.  Thanks.

If eye relief is a concern, and it sounds like it could be, I would suggest a conquest. You actually didn't say which conquest you were considering.....I assume the 3x12x56? If so it will have 3.5" constant eye relief, optics will be very good with the conquest, but I haven't compared the two scopes mentioned head to head. Will defer to Jon's opinion.

A 7mmSAUM in a lightweight model seven will kick a lot more than 18#, it will be pretty stout.

An M7 Remy with a 3-12X56 will be like towing a 36' travel trailer with a Ranger.
I would look at a smaller scope that would not ruin the balance of that fine rifle. I have a 3-9x40 Monarch on mine and it works great.

eye relief is shorter than i like - BUT, it's on a 7mm08 so it's not a problem.
 
that gun kicks like a baby.
 
if eye relief is an issue - get a 3-9x40 conquest and call it a day.
 
or the 1.5-6x42 SIII sightron w/a #4 would be nice.
 
good luck.

I have 3x9 monarchs on a couple of different rifles:  a Ruger M77II .243 and a Model Seven .308.  Nice scopes, but I want more magnification and better low-light performance on the SAUM.  I have a 4.5-14x44 Conquest on my .308 5-R, but the low-light performance is not what I desire.  So, I am off the the races.  If the scope it too big asthetically, teh so be it!  I am after performance for this hunting rifle.  I already have several beautiful rifles in the safe!!  This one may be the ugly little sister...  Thanks.  Drummer
