My first post Guys,

 

I have an A-Bolt 270 with a Bushnell 4200 2.5-10X50.  I just bought a Tikka T3 22-250.  I am buying the Zeiss 4.5-14X50 scope for it.  I am wondering which Rapid Z reticle to buy.  They have the Rapid Z 600 or 800 or 1000 or Varmint.  For my 22-250, it is suggested that I should get theVarmint reticle.  However, I really want the Rapid Z600 and expect it should be fine for my 22-250, with its built in BDC.  Also, one day I may want to switch my scopes around to another rifle, and hate to limit that scope to a varmint gun.

 

I am hoping to be able to use the Rapid Z 600 on my 22-250 and want to know if there is a real big difference, or would it be too confusing to try to use the BDC of a Rapid Z 600 on my 22-250.  How much difference is there in the reticle calculations between the 600 800 1000 & Varmit.  Or, are they more alike than different.

 

I know these are new scopes, but the concept is not new.  Anyone please chime in with your thoughts.  Thanks in advance!

I see where plenty of people have viewed this post- yet no replies.  So I will offer some feedback on my own post via Zeiss.  A rep from Zeiss told me that you could not substitute or change calibers with the rapid Z's.  I.e. I could not use the rapid Z varmint for my 270.  Obviously, I could, but it would not work out as planned. The reticles are calculated based on perticular bullet ranges.

 

Therefore, I am buying the good ole Z-plex or #20 as it is called.   Hope this helps.
