  • I have a Sig Sauer 3000 Patrol that I am sizing up to mount a scope. I will only be punching paper at long ranges so the .308 s

    I have a Sig Sauer 3000 Patrol that I am sizing up to mount a scope. I will only be punching paper at long ranges so the .308 suits me just fine. I have narrowed my choices to the Zeiss Conquest 5-25 power (that might be 6-24 whatever? ) and the Nightforce 6-32 power. The night force scope is about $600 more. While I would prefer the lesser expense there is no sense cheaping out on a rifle capable of tremendous accuracy. I want it to be such that I am the weak link in the accuracy department ===meaning if I miss it is my fault and not that of the rifle. It has to have good optics for these aging eyes. My trigger finger works just fine. Thought??

    I think either will be fine. I think once you get to a certain level of quality in optics differences in them will be hard to determine. I've looked at both brands and they seem excellent. If money is no object I would get the Night Force.

      I don't know anything about Nightforce scopes, other than that they're very expensive. But I do know that Zeiss has been the standard of excellence in optics for many, many years, and I'm sure you can't go wrong with one of their scopes. If the higher magnification of the Nightforce is important, and you have the money, then that might be the better choice, but otherwise I'd save the money and get the Zeiss.

        The finances of this deal require me to sell one gun for the Zeiss and two guns for the Nightforce. As DSMbirddog suggests "if money is no object" ... DSM, I have worked to hard earning my dollars to ever say Money is No Object. Ha Ha! I have always told my wife that guns are a liquid asset . Guns, unlike most other things we spend our money on hold their value. So, when I want something special I try to talk myself into selling off the firearms least used or least appreciated....that is not always an easy decision as a guy get attached to these toys. I just can't let my Browning Over and Under go so I will go for the cheaper buy. Besides, The Zeiss at a local dealer is now less than at Cabelas. This will be exciting guys as I have never attempted shots at 500yards let alone beyond that distance. I have a few pounds of Varget powder ready to burn and .308 case reading to load up and fire up.

          Scratch that idea..someone wiser than myself informs me that the Bushnell Elite 3.5-21 X 50 mm is the scope of choice based on price and performance. I will check it out and hope I can find the scope in the reticle style suggested to me which is the TRMOR2... That reticle looks like it may require a college course of study to master so I will have a look at its manual to see if I am up to the task. Yes, I do find my TV remote challenging these days!!
