Putting together a Savage 17HMR rifle for Groundhog in Virginia.  So!  with this set up the range will probably be less than 150 yards and @ 200 yards being the max.  I have owned and used a Nikon Buckmaster, Zeiss Conquest scope for my 243 and finally settled for a Nightforce on the 243 now.  Looking at the Nikon Buckmaster  4.5 - 14 X 40, $289.00 and the Zeiss Conquest 4.5 - 14 X 44  $749.00  I know the advantages of the Zeiss, but the difference in cost and the shorter distance of the shots is leaning me toward the Nikon.  Is the cost justified at these distances for the Zeiss?

It would not be for me if you are only looking at 200 yards, I put a 4.5 -14 buckmaster on my 17 HMR and I have never used anything over 8 in the last year. If you are competeing at targets that is different than shooting varmints, crows etc.
