Have any of you had experience with the Zeiss DL 3-12-50 or others close to this model? Thanks.

I have a 1.5-6 Kahles in Talley QR rings. For DG I sure as hell don't want anything more than 1.5 on the bottom end for follow up!


I am continually astounded at how quickly people make up their minds on little evidence or none at all.

Use quick detach mounts and open sights. I use these. https://www.amazon.com/LEUPOLD-QRW2...ld+qrw+low&qid=1582212574&sr=8-1

I haven't hunted Leopard but have used the fire dot reticle on my Leupold VX5 in almost total darkness. It can be sunshine bright or just the smallest pin prick which is visible but does not flare out in total darkness.

Would think it would be perfect,

Good choice. Usually the client doesn't go on the follow up unless you have hunted with the PH a long time. But I have heard from several PH's that they prefer a shotgun for night time follow ups over a rifle. Makes sense to me.

But, this would be a good rig. Chopped and fluted 21" NH SS M-70 .375 H&H with NECG irons, front windowed hood fiberoptic, wearing a Zeiss Victory 1.5-6x50 T* in Warne QD's on steel Warne bases. Not illuminated, but excellent glass and reticle that would work as long as one could see a cat. May be able to see the target longer with top Alpha glass vs a lesser scope, illumination notwithstanding.

I've seen these scopes sell used for $850-900, would be pretty easy to turn over when done with it. IMO, hard to find better glass for low light.

Am pretty sure, that scope is a Zeiss Victory 1,5-6x42 T*, being an excellant choice non withstanding.

What do you think of an ACOG with an RMR on top?

Killed my leopard in 2012 (Namibia). Rifle was a pre-64 M70 built by Stuart Satterlee on his North American pattern in .338 win. Scope was a Swaro Z6i with an illuminated circle dot reticle. The combo worked just fine. Got the leopard on the first day of the hunt.
