 Am trying to decide on one of these 2 scopes, will be on a 300 wtby and used mostly for hunting from a fixed stand and a some varmit/target shooting.  Its a Habicht model Swarovski.

I own Swaro and Zeiss Conquest: no question, if you can afford it, the Swaro!  I love the ballistic reticule Swaro offers.

Both are great scopes, either will serve you well.  Neither is made for severe-recoil guns, just in case.

+5 on the Swaro, though the zeiss is very nice scope, just not in the swaro league or price range.

I have a Conquest in 3.5-10x50 and a Swarovski PH in 3-12x50. I have spent some time comparing them and during daylight the differences are very subtle. In low light the Swaro is unreal. I can go outside at 5am (almost total darkness} and can pick out pine needles at 70 yards no problem. They are both great scopes but it really depends on the type of hunting you do. If you want that extra hour of shooting ability the Swarovski is the tool. The Conquest however is a great scope for a hell of a lot less money. Hope this helps.

Did you try the same test with the Conquest?

I kind of like the heavier crosshairs in the Kahles scopes.
