Anyone know why Leupold doesn't or won't put windage hash marks in their scopes. Sure would be nice to hold for wind instead of dialing. A VX-6 3-18 with windage marks would be the ultimate longrange scope without stepping up to the nightforce class of scope.


JMHO. Thanks Roy

Hate to break it to you skywalker, but you said "high end". Swaro's is the Z6 which are $2k+, same with Zeiss HT, their "high end". A 2-12 VX6 is $799 "all day long".

Negative on OpticsTalk. I definitely don't fit it with that bunch. It's not worth arguing over anyway. If you say the Z5 is high end, then the Z6 is higher end, how's that? I'm not a Swaro scope lover like most here. If you think the Z5 is worth almost twice the money as a VX6 then get a big helpin' of it. I know better.

When you're looking for the most glass with the least amount of weight the z5 IS worth the extra cash.

Yes, the Swarovski is 3.6oz lighter, that is true. But, the VX6 is at least equal to, and to my eyes, better optically than those Swarovski models. For dialing turrets I also find the CDS system nicer that the Ballistic Turret - although I understand Swarovski now has a CDS style retrofit for $99. The one thing that is FAR superior on the Leupold is the eyebox.

I am a big Swarovski fan, but these VX6's are the real deal. The only caveat is that they are new. Will I be happy two years from now? I certainly hope so!

I think I'd get another VX-6 than another Z5. I agree that the CDS is the better deal for turrets. The Swaro BT, IMHO, is a joke. I got an Outdoorsmans turret to retrofit the BT set up. It's nice, but a bunch more money than the CDS.

The Z3 duplex is OK, the Z5 duplex, a bit too thin for hunting, my kinda hunting anyway. Not sure about the Z6. To me, the VX-6 duplex is about ideal.

Higher end Swaro glass may edge the VX-6, but not by enough to justify the difference in cost. Not sure the Z3 beats out the VX-6.

Those are my observations and opinion, YMMV.

JGRaider- the OP is talking about 3-18X42, so apples to apples......man, you would fit in over on opticstalk AND could run for Senator as a Democrat........why would the price of a 2-12X42 even be an issue here?

Take your own advice.......READ posts SLOWLY.

Man, that's a low blow, throwing JG in with the politicians. You could have said some really bad stuff about him, kinder than that... blush

He's on the warpath isn't he Dirt? I've already told him it's not worth arguing about. Yeah, calling me a politician is a cheapshot for sure! Sky, I'm just trying to show you why I've said the things I've said, that's all. If you're in love with the Z5 that just tickles me to no end. BTW, next time call me an azzwhole or something besides a politician, please. smile
