Anyone know the parallax setting on this scope?

http://www.swfa.com/pc-6703-259-zeiss-25-8x32-conquest-rifle-scope.aspx

The SWFA site doesn't show a value?  I see other sites, that use the exact same part number for the scope, claim it is 50 yds.

Am I sure?  No.  Otherwise, I'd have already pulled the trigger.

I'd love a 1.5-5x28 Zeiss Conquest.  Unfortunately, they don't exist.  If you check the other thread, I'm still looking for different options.  The Weaver is still on my short list.  Big%20Smile

The 1.5-5 has a 38mm objective and the 2.5-8 a 32, go figure. I think the 2.5-8 Zeiss would compliment that Browning nicely. That would be a classy lever gun rig.

...................................Its easy to fall in love with Zeiss which would work. However IMO, a 2.5x8 variable has too little FOV on the low to high end and too much magnification for 358`s intended use; which is, 175 yards or less (most of the time; less) in denser or thicker terrain, mounted on a medium range rifle; a 358 Win. BLR!..........A 2.5x8 variable is more of a plains scope than a brush scope.........Complimenting a rifle is one thing and that`s a good thing. But get the proper variable for the hunting conditions.    Wink

I've used a fixed 4x forever in the dense woods without a problem. The FOV has never been a problem.

..............................................I`m sure you won`t either! A 4x is fine! But a surprise within 50 yards or less? I`d take a 1x to 1.5x on the low end as a better choice. Faster to target and better FOV.

Big Grin!......good one pyro. I feel that 358 is a lot more than a 175 yd gun and I also feel a 2.5x8 would be a super little scope on it. Light and small with power for load work and the occasional longer shot if presented and plenty of fOV for closer shots. I hunt with a 3.5x10 scope in very dense cover up here in Maine, many of my deer shot at 50yds or less. Never had my 3.5x cost me a single deer in many years of hunting thick cover.

well apparently some people here havent had a coyote close enough to kill with a knife, when they are that close even 1x is to much you gotta improvise, and aiming down the barrel has been used more than once, and you usually gotta wipe your butt when they get that close!

..............................................Well! You can try to be accurate when doing that. I`ll just use the quick to target 1x to 1.5x on the low end,,,,,WITH ACCURACY!!................Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Squeeze,

Trust me that's what I'm trying to do.  As I mentioned in the other thread, 95% of my hunting is sitting on a log or in a tree stand with most of the activity in low light conditions. In those conditions, I'll have whatever scope I have set to 2.5-3 power.  At that point, I want the best 2.5-3x power scope I can reasonably afford.  So to me, if a $400 or $500 scope is "better" than a $150-$200 scope, I'm going to seriously consider it.  If we were still "driving" deer in PA, I'd be much more concerned with how quickly I could get a shot off.

Thanks again for sharing your insights with me.

Thanks.  I'll need it.

Part of my problem is that I'm an engineer by trade.  That means there is no decision that I won't over analyze.

what are you going to do with that throw it? you wont have time to unholster and aim it the movement alone will scare the animal enough it will disapear before you draw a bead.

.....................Are you sure?? Wouldn`t that depend on the style of holster too? I gots a good one! Perfect for very fast extraction! Also, practice makes perfect! I don`t spend all my time on just the rifle range ya know!..................Shootin a rifle from the hip vs. a revolver? Hmmmm!...........I`ll take the revolver with my special quicky holster!

...........................Oh yes! You did forget that I carry an additional little something extra. With my holster, there is no need to lift the revolver up to remove it.............On the front of the holster, there is a custom vertical and flexible slice from just below the hammer area to below the muzzle end of the revolver!...........Wyatt Earp would be proud!
