Narrowed it down to these two scopes for my new 300 win mag. Looking at the zeiss hd5 5-15 or Leupold vx6 3-18.

Have looked at both in person and like them both.

Any thoughts on the two???

Between those 2, it's an easy pick. Leupold.

What else should I look at it in that range? Swarovski z?

Well, both great scopes, but I like the Leupold a little better. The VX-6 lines is great...great glass.

No experience with the HD5 other than in a store but I've shot many times using a VX6 and it is phenomenal. That being said I don't think the glass is much different in a VX3 but you lose some magnification range. I think the VX3 4.5-14x40 with CDS is about as perfect a scope as one would ever need.

The conquest is a great scope but for me the VX-6 has the edge. The 30mm tube seems to bring more light in with the 40mm objective lens. I love it since you don't have to mount it as high as a 50mm lens.

Leupold's glass has really improved over the last few years..
VX6 wins over the Conquest..
5 years ago the Conquest had better glass.

I have had the VX6 for my 308 for the last 4 months and I love it. To reference I have a night force 5-22 and meopta 3-9.

Great glass and very nice sight.
