    Posted: August/24/2016 at 20:52

Looking for a new scope to go on a 300 mag rifle. Used for deer hunting (100-300 yards) and (potentially) protection from bears in AK.

Looking at two models

Swarovski V6 2-12x50

Zeiss Victory HT 2.5-10x50

Both non illuminated

The Swarovski has longer eye relief and lower low end power, both of which I see as advantages. I'll probably never use them at more than 6x, so upper end not an issue.

I have looked through both scopes and they were excellent optically (in reasonable in store / daylight) but I have not compared them side by side, or in low light. Interested in opinions on the following issues (in order of priority):

Ability to hold zero through rough handling

Optical quality in low light

US service in case of defect or damage

Thanks

Either one will do the job.  Top of the class.

Supertool 73 has a Z6 for sale below in the optics for sale section... at a smoking hot price. Might want to check it out.

I have the Swaro z6 2-12x50 and a Zeiss HT 1.5-6x42 (not the 2.5-10x50). Close call but I'd take the z6 if I had to choose.
