scope for my 7mm
« on: June 09, 2021, 03:43:00 PM »
alright ive got her widdled down to these 3 scopes, Swarovski Z5 3.5-18x44 L BT Riflescope, Vortex Razor LHT 3-15x42 HSR-5i MOA Riflescope, or the Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x44 (30mm) CDS-ZL2.

i really like the price of the vortex and the leupold. i also like the 0 stop they they have. only thing i dont like about the razor is the illuminated redical. i wish they would make one that is nonilluminated and save the 2 or 3 oz.

the leupold has a realy nice 0 stop and as i understand i can send leupold my dope and they will build me a turret. but at the same time i dont like have leupold has mushy clicks and the button feels kinda cheep.

i havent been able to get ahold of the swaro. its lighter by a few oz. no need to get a turret built for it. but for the price diffrence i could damn near get the vortex mounted with rings and a good base.

right now i would say ill only be shooting 400 or 500 yards.

well after typing this all out i think im gonna go with the voretx. i will however take any comments into consideration

Might want to check out Zeiss. I have a Conquest HD5 and its a Conquest HD5 scope, their new line that came out last year might have one that fits your requirements.

I have a Swaro Z5 5-25x52 on my 7mmRM and love it.  I had custom turrets made for my favorite loads by Outdoorsmans.   The Z5s are nice and light, and the best clarity and quality of any of the optics choices you listed.   

I have Zeiss on my other rifles, and also love those scopes as well.

I have a Leupold VX-6 HD 3-18X44.  Its a nice scope and I have had no issues with it.  My eyes aren't as sharp as they used to be.  I got it at a good price through Leupold.  Razor is a nice scope as well. The Swarovski is a really really really nice scope.  I would go Swarovski if price didn't matter, otherwise it is a toss up between the other two.

Swaro, without a doubt.
Best glass, build quality, resale, and you don't have to worry about sending it to Beaverton in a year or two.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
