Just bought myself a new Model 70 S/S in 300WSM.

Need a new scope,here are my choices.
Which would you pick & why?

1).Kahles-American Hunter = 2-7x36 & 3-9x42.
2).Zeiss-Conquest = 3-9x40 & 3.5-10x44.
3).Leupold VX111 = 2.5x8x36.

Cheers,
Tez .

PS-This setup will be mainly a mountain rifle = 50 to 300m shots,hunting sambar deer(Australia).About the size of elk.

You cant go wrong with any of these scopes. But youre talking more money with the Kahles.

Narrowed it down to three scopes now-
Kahles 3-9x42.
Zeiss 3-9x40 & 50mm.


PS- Whats the difference between the Kahles American Hunter 3-9x42 & the Kahles CL 3-9x42?

I don't know the differences, but I just got a new Cl 3-9x42 and it is awesome.

I don't have any experience with the Kahles, but I'm sure several in this forum do. I own a Zeiss Conquest and love it. The Zeiss has an etched reticle and that was a big plus for me. Alot of the members of this forum like the Zeiss, that's the main reason I purchased mine, just to see what all the hub-bub was about. In my opinion, they're excellent scopes for the money.

Tez,

 

You need to do some more reading on this forum, someone posted a similar question to yours a couple of days ago....they went with the Kahles CL.
