Why the lack of numbers on the hunting turrets? Just lines? I do not get that at all!

Am I missing something?

For $50, they will put on a target turret, that's what I did with my conquest 4.5-14.

Rancid:Any details on how replacing the turrets works at Zeiss?  Does it require shipping the scope back to Zeiss or as simple as purchasing replacement turrets from them?  Not sure if this is a simple drop in o rmore involved.

Ship to them, they fit, ship back.
 
Normally a scope not ment to dial in will not have markings, why would they? add cost and be irrelavant to 99% of the users.  If you want to dial in you'll add turrets or buy a scope with them.

Thanks SVT.  Mine has a Rapid Z reticle so turrets aren't necessary but have a line on another one with a mildot reticle that would benefit.

Fellas, I am trying to work a trade  for a conquest 4.5-14x44 on sample list but I am torn between getting a basic plex and having the target turrets added and getting the rapid z 800, I shoot Iron with my ss10x42 out to 700 but I am not sure sure about using turrets on a DIY elk and bear hunt in oct. in the rockies is a good idea, hunting on public land tends to less forgiving  and harder on your equipment and  being 2-3  hours away from camp and 40 miles from a sporting goods store is no place to be having an equipment failure.

I wouldn't worry too much about failure, but I have used the Rapid-z system while hunting, and found it remarkably fast and convenient.  I put a witness mark on my mag ring where the reticle was calibrated for my load.

I'm a big advocate of using the same techniques in the field as you've practiced with extensively and feel comfortable with.  If there's enough time for you to put tons of rounds downrange with that reticle, as well as practicing getting the power ring to the correct location as a matter of habit, that could certainly work.

But since you're already practiced with and are comfortable with turrets, it might be a bit late in the game to change things now for this season.  There's nothing wrong with the durability/usability of turrets on the right scopes--but they certainly can be liabilities on some scopes.  This is one reason I tend to lean toward tactical scopes as their turrets are generally a lot more "solid" as well as overall durability and tracking repeatability generally being better.  I haven't used the Conquest target turrets so I can't tell you how I'd feel about them on such hunts (especially if horses will be in the picture).

However, I can recommend one feel OK with.  In the same price range and power range you're considering, you should give the Weaver 3-15 tactical a look as it may be just what you're looking for.  The turrets lock so it's virtually impossible for them to get moved accidentally.  Excellent glass, tracking, etc, should be just like using your SS.  I used one (actually the 4-20) quite a bit a few seasons back and my only complaints with it have been fixed on the new 3-15.

I had never realy considered the weaver line of scopes since having some disapointment many years ago  when they stopped making steel tube optics and the new modles left somthing to be desired. I guess I kinda swore off of asian made stuff but the ss line has renewed my faith. I just cannot afford the 5-20 ss . Every thing I read on the weaver has been good . I will wait to see what kind of offer I recieve from samplist on my trade and then I will decide weather to proceed or not.     thanks
