Both Zeiss and Swarovski have ballistics systems which include both proprietary reticules and web programs, which do you like better for a hunting application and why.

Thanks,

Sam

For hunting, I prefer ballistic reticles (though they take some time on the range to be sure exactly where your rounds will fall on the reticle.)

Of those I have used, I prefer Swaro's over Zeiss' (Conquest.)

My favorite, for simplicity and quick reference, is the Zeiss #42, it is a #4 with an additional aiming point.  With that, you have a dead-nutz zero at whatever range (my 300WM is at 200 yards) and a secondary aiming point (at 325) - so I can take a shot from point-blank to 325 yards and be within an inch of exactly where I want the round to hit; that's about as good as it gets for precision hunting.

I'd go with the Swaro Ballistic Turret.  I like the Kahles MultiZero, but you asked about Swaro and Zeiss.
