I just purchased a Zeiss 2.5x8 32mm Conquest rifle scope to go on a brand new Winchester Featherlight Model 70 in a 30-06.  I wanted a scope with a very low profile give the carbine length barrel.  Does anyone have any experience with this scope.  I do not plan on doing any night or even really low light hunting, but pure deer hunting within legal light limits.  Purchased Warne bases and medium height QD rings at the recommendation of Warne given the long throw length of the Winchester bolt and the large eyepiece of the Zeiss scope.

I have one and love it.  The Zeiss with a 32 mm lens is as bright as a lot of the inexpensive scopes with 40 mm lenses.  I have a Leupold Vari-X III 2.5x8x36 and the Zeiss is easily as bright or brighter than the Leupy.  I have heard that the new Monarch 2.5x8x32 is as bright as the Zeiss but I have no first hand knowledge of this.  This scope is perfect for your application.  I got mine for a Ruger M77 International .308 Win.  Compact rifles call for smaller scopes.  I think you'll be quite pleased.

I have the 1.8-5.5X38 version.  I like the scope.  It is definitely a bright, clear scope.  I was able to use the low Warne rings on my vanguard.  I bet you could probably get away with the low rings as well.

Big fan of the German army during WWII.  Probably the most efficient, effective and intelligent machine that has ever existed on this earth.  If had not been for the USA, Europe would speaking German.  So, when anyone from Europe asks why all meetings in Europe are held in English, the answer is that, because the USA made it sure that the meetings were not held in German.  The only other army that came close to the German war machine, was the Confederate army.  Similarly outnumbered, superior Generals and superior troops, all of which kept the machine running.  Both almost won and in the case of the Confederacy, if that had only a little help from Europe, bingo, Obama would not be President.  I am pro-USA, an American through and through and definitely not one of these skin heads, who are a disgrace to Nazis.  The Nazi party was just that, a political party, just like the Republicans or Democrats, but Nazi conotates horrible images by it's name only.  I will leave what beliefs people have about Germans, the Nazi party, the SS and other aspects of WWII to their own reading and beliefs.  I do not want to make this a political discussion.

Interesting opinion there.....I am a Scottish, Iris, Prussian, and Prussian Jew.... Many in my (Prussian) family fought on both sides of that war....I applaud the patriotic beliefs you espouse here.
The Confederate army was defeated because of a lack of foresight into the importance of logistics. More emphasis on the supply line defense at the Mississippi river crossing and the South may have won that war. There really isn't a stronger adversary than one fighting for their homeland and it's rights to remain free. One free man is worth 50 conscripts.
Yes the Germans were efficient, cunning, and had the timing been better for some of their developements that war could have been a lot longer and more costly. Especially given the divided forces of our services fighting in two seperate theaters. It is a testament to the stamina and grit of our service men and women. Which a good amount of we owe to one Barron Von Stuben. It was his ideals that are the father to our doctrine for training and discipline. http://americanrevwar.homestead.com/files/VONSTUB.HTM
Still, with all of that, some will take some offense to the tag line. So be prepared for that.

Never thought to much about the Civil War but with the Germans in World War II, I feel Adolph Hitlers running of the war, especially when things got tough was what ultimately brought them down.
 
Regarding the Japanese, well, they were some fighting SOB's.  My dad who was in the Pacific felt had the Japanese had the same materials we had, we here in the US maybe speaking Japanese...

Another great line I heard was abouth this old 84 year old guy.  He was flying to Paris and this creepy French fellow asked him for his passport.  Well he was fumbling around for it and said, the last time I came to France I did not have to show my passport.  The French guy rudely said, well mousier, that is impossible, you have always had to show us your passport.  The old man looked up and said.  Well in 1944, when I landed at Normandy, I did not have a passport and there were no Frenchman anywhere to be found to give it to if I did have one.

My primary job here is being the class clown. So I can't take any offense if that's the way several see me. (hence the Bill Murray from Stripes Avatar) 
I studied a good bit about wars and how they were won and lost. (Part of my training in the Army as a squad leader.) I can be quite serious when I need to be, just I prefer that all of us can have fun and learn something as well.
