I am looking for a scope for a new 300wsm. Those listed below have caught my eye but I can't draw any conclusions. If all were the same price, which one would you chose?

Swarovski Z3: 4x12x50
Zeiss Conquest: 4.5x14x50
Zeiss MC Conquest: 6.5x20x50
Leupold VX3: 4.5x14x50
Leupold Mark4: 4.5x14x50

Personally, none of the above. I would get a smaller objective. They all have good glass and don't need the 50mm to "improve" the low light ability. JMO

The Swaro is the best of the group.

In order
1-Swaro
2-Leupold Mk4
3&4-Zeiss conquest
5-Leupold VX3

The Swarovski is going to be lighter and have superior optical clearity.
They are absolutely phenomenal.
Personaly I think lens clearity in Zeiss is slightly better than Leupold.
If you are in the DFW area and can come by the shop, I can pull them, so you can view each of them side by side.
We carry all three of those brands.

I'd have them listen like TW, however I'd also take a look at the VX3L w/ B&C ret.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

If you do, put a Minox ZA5 on your compare list as well. 4-20x50, 3-15x50 etc.

Of those listed, Zeiss would be best bang for buck. Check out following also:

Vortex Viper
Vortex Viper PST
U.S.Optics
IOR Valdada

Vortex are my favorite now for price and they have same no fault replacement warranty as Leupold.

Depends on what you're after, features or glass. Viper PST has tons of features for its price but if you just want good glass then I feel there are better options out there. I do have a Viper PST on one of my rifles and I like it a lot. FFP illuminated reticle, mrad/mrad, target turrets, zero stop (I'm sure I forgot at least one feature) with good glass at a reasonable price, what is there not to like?
