Hi,

I'm trying to figure out a scope for shooting out to 350 yards? I'd like some kind of reticle or easy dialing system that can help me with the holdover.

I'll be shooting a 30-06, 180 gr, on an elk hunt in the rockies. Other than that I'll be shooting a 150 gr. in Hawaii.

I was just wondering what you guys prefer?

Are any of these types of options available on the Conquest or Swarovski Z3 lines? Those seem like very nice scopes but how do you figure out the holdover?

Thanks,
Dave

Take a look at the new Zeiss Conquest HD5 scopes with the Rapid Z600 reticle. Something like the 2-10 X 42 would work well. Go on the Zeiss website and run the calculations (you have to enter in the pertinent data from your caliber, load, elevation, inclination, etc. on their calculator). It will then provide good approximations of the holdover bar values and optimum power setting to match the actuals with the 3,4,5, and 6 hash marks ... then you range verify such. Good luck.
