  I am looking to put a scope on my Rem. 700 LTR. (308),  the rifle will be used for both punching holes in paper and hunting.   My shooting range limit is 500 yards.  Ive  read many reviews on here as well as opticsthoughts.com and have learned alot.   I am looking to get some opinions on the following scopes:

Leupy Mark 4 (PR) 4.5 x14x40, has a duplex reticle, and target knobs (buddy of mine has one looking to sell in great shape)  or the other scope I have in mind is the Zeiss conquest 4.5-14x44.  Im thinking zeiss because of all of the positive reviews, not sure of the conquest's durability though (have not heard or read anything negative.)  These 2 scopes will basically cost me the same amount of money, the conquest will be more because the Mark 4 is used.  Any adice will be greatly appreciated!

I agree with SVT. I would choose the zeiss.

Welcome.  My Zeiss 4.5-14x44 was only $700 because I got it from the SWFA sample list.  It has the #4 Reticle and hunting turrets.  There are several to choose from on the list right now.

adding a Minox 3-15x50 to my short list..Seems like (from reading reviews) Leupys have a rep. for being overpriced for their quality.

Here is a Conquest on the samplelist for a good price:
 
 
coyote95,
 
Is that a TC Precision Hunter? If so, how do you like it?

Not to appear too much an SWFA homer, but those scopes are the real deal.  The only thing I noticed on mine was that there was some gunk in the threads for a shade.  Otherwise, the glass and coating was flawless, as were the clicks and adjustments.  The  glass, turrets, and overall look (no scope ring marks at all) were flawless other than the aforementioned thread junk for the shade.  hope this helps.

Thanks for the feedback, I have a TC Venture that is great for a lightweight hunting rig.
