Fellas,I am putting together a rifle package for deer/ hog hunting at ranges out to say 300yds. And was wanting a scope that will excel in low light performance and optical clarity for those last few minutes of light. How will the mentioned scope do in this roll?

Looks like a good bet, but I've never even seen one. I think you'd more likely be recommended a VX-R around here. How would the illumination controls on that scope hold up to smilax and greenbrier?

Actually I am looking at the  non illuminated version , This rifle will likely see very little brush beating as it will be a stand rifle where the game is seen on a plots at questionable shooting light. I have not been impressed by the vxr's capability when it comes to low light performance. The Conquest line though have slightly odd dimensions seem to be real performers. I am just not familiar with this particular model. It seems these days I tend to lean towards optical quality as opposed to optical power.

On par with the older conquest mc maybe a little better is what I remember reading here at optics talk. I really like the mag range on this scope for intended purpose.
