I am trying to decide on an all around scope for my M70, in 325WSM. This will be for use in the western US, and possibly Alaska or Canada.
Right now I am contemplating either the new Zeiss ZD5 3-145x42 or the new SWFA SS 3-15x42. I suspect that the glass on the Zeiss would prove superior in lowlight conditions, but that the SS would be much harder to break.
On the Zeiss, I would use the Rapid Z 600 reticle, or possible the lockable target turrets. The Rapid Z would probably be excellent, and their new reticle is improved over the first version.
Actually I would prefer a plex or the SS reticle, and suspect that the glass would satisfactory, but believe that the tall turrets of the SS would be uncomfortable if carrying all day.
Any recommendations welcomed.http://swfa.com/Zeiss-3-15x42-Conquest-HD5-Rifle-Scope-P60842.asp
