It's time for a new scope. After comparing my old Leupold Vari-X II 3-9x50 on my deer rifle to my new Leupy VX-II 3-9x40 on my AR, I've decided that it's time to upgrade the scope on the deer rifle.

I came in here looking for reviews and info on the Leupold VX-II line in 3-9x50 vs. the VX3's to see what the difference was or the VX3's vs. similar scopes. Thanks to all the reviews and comments on these two scopes as well as others, I think I've settled on the Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 as the next optic for the 270.

My hunting conditions vary from wooded areas to open fields with most of my hunting for deer done in or near a wheat field. Ranges can vary from  20yds to 325yds typically and I hunt until the last second of legal light or whenever I can no longer see to make clean shots, whichever comes first.

This site seems to be an invaluable resource to hunters and shooters. Glad I found it.

Hopefully I can be of help to someone else down the road.

Welcome to OT.

The Conquest is a great line of scopes.  I am sure it will serve you well.
