I am looking at purchasing a scope for a .270 Vanguard that I just got. I think I have narrowed it down to 3, but would like your input. I am looking a 3x9x40 in the Zeiss Conquest, Leupold VX-II, and Nikon Monarch. Let me know pros, cons, and everything else. Thanks.

oh yea, price range is from $250-$450, but the scopes I am looking at are around $400.

Zeiss conquest 3~9x40 would be my choice.

IMO, best scope under $400 available.

I havent found it under $400, It's actually right at $400 at cabelas and academy. If you know of a place that has it cheaper please let me know. Thanks.

There are some bargains out there. If Cabelas still has the Elite 4200 3x9 for $199, it would be hard to beat. I have one of these and it just might be better than a Conquest, perhaps. Also, Doug at Cameraland is running some insanely low prices on Minox scopes, which I've never personally tried, but others have lauded.

That said, I own 3 Zeiss Conquest scopes, and despite the above paragraph, I would probably lean this way. The idea of German-made components assembled here in the U.S. by American workers just sounds good to me. There are several places selling the Conquest 3x9 for less than $400:

Doug is a great guy, givem a call.
---> Cameraland

$400,,, or less for a demo free shipping no tax.

IMO the Conquest is certainly worth 400 bucks.

Zeiss conquest, you will be glad you did.

I actually just bought a new Vanguard in .270 caliber yesterday from Bass Pro. They had one of the Nikon Prostaff members there for the Hunting Classic, and he talked me into getting a Nikon 3-9x40 Buckmaster with BDC. I took it out today and shot it and it is amazing, very clear view, and the BDC is amazing, if i remember correctly, you zero it in to 100 yards, and every circle below the crosshair is an added 100 yards up to a 500 yard shot. I picked it up for $220 and with a lifetime warranty its hard to beat imo

DK, out of the options that you are looking at. The Conquest is truly the way to go. Don't get me wrong, Leupold and Nikon make great items, but Zeiss has created a foundation that is almost incomparable.

I can get you a 3-9x40mm Zeiss Conquest for $379.99 + tax and only $5.00 shipping.

There are a few other models available, if you want to go a different route.

Private message me if you want to order it.

Ok, well I definitely appreciate all the feedback. I am definitely going with the Zeiss which was my first thought anyways. I think I'll just get it from Academy or Cabelas because with tax and shipping almost all the deals that have been posted are going to come out close to the same.

www.camerlandny.com there is no tax and shipping :confused2. I assure you you can't buy a scope at Cabelas for the same money!

If you think you could benefit from an illuminated reticle, these two are excellent scopes and GREAT value for the money.

Well, I just got a 10% dicount thing in the mail for cabelas, so as long as that applies to scopes and I haven't found any fine print on it that says that it doesn't, I'll probably do that. I figure if I can pick up the scope and mounts for around $400 that would be a good deal. Plus, I live close to the cabela's in Buda. I actually pass it everyday on the way to work. Not really interested in an illuminated scope, but thanks.
