Whats your opnion? I'm going to buy a Plex retical and I don't want ballistic turrets. I'm limited by my eyesight so I don't need a 1000 yard scope.
I've got 2 Swarovski's, an old Habitch and a newer Z3 that I'm happy with but I thought I'd ask the group?

I think the Z3 falls right in at $999...lol. I've used the Z5 and it's great. BIL is right on the VX6, but I don't think it is less than $1k; maybe the VX3i.

I don't know if the Conquest HD5 by Zeiss falls under $1k, but it is about that price range and is a great scope as well.

My experience with 3 Z3s has been great. The VX6 also seems highly respected but I have no experience.

Thanks for the link, I'd like to try a Kahles but I should have added more detail to my post. I need a 3X12 or 3x14 at least. With my eyesight I need more magnification help than 3x9 or 3x10! That's dang sure a good buy!

I bought a Zeiss HD5 that was 5x25x50 I think and it was just too big and heavy for the rifle. I Sold it and lost a few coins on that one!

Look it up before spewing your millennial juice because you can currently get into a vx6 for under a $1000 right now

No one can tell you. If you look through the scopes mentioned, chances are one of them will stand out to your eyes. The choice is then made for you.
