Glass for CZ .300wm UHR for Elk / Deer / Bear
I finally booked my first guided hunt for elk in Montana for fall of 2016, which I am using as an excuse to put together a higher end, mid-longe range rifle.
I have ordered a cz ultimate hunting rifle in .300wm, and am now deciding on optics. I have not done much long range shooting or hunting. I currently shoot a Remington 700bdl in 30-06 w a leupold vari x II 3-9x40, rarely getting shots over 100yds.
I was interested in scopes with the bullet drop compensator or BDC, but am open to options. Would like to get comfortable shooting accurately out to 400 yards with a decent rest.
I plan on shooting 200 grain bullets, not sure what brand I'm gonna sight in with yet, I don't handload.
The two scopes I was seriously considering are
1. Zeiss conquest HD 3-15 x 44 with rz600 recticle
2 Leupold vari-x 6 3-18x44 with firedog recticle
Was also considering looking towards both models in 50mm.
Heavily leaning towards the Zeiss
Has anyone had any experience with these scopes, or recommendations they would make in the same price class?
Thanks for the help guys! All comments and suggestions welcome, gonna be waiting on this rifle for 45-60 days.
I feel the hard part is going to be finding a range where I can join/drop in to practice shooting the ranges I need to....
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
