    Opinions on Zeiss Rapid-Z reticle

    Looking for some opinions on these from those that have used them please.

    Interested in the Zeiss HD-5 primarily from a low-light hunting scope, and something to use in deerstalkers/gong shoots, so mostly short to mid ranges (50 - 700 yards).

    Keen to hear your thought on ease of use when shooting at multiple ranges, especially where the target distances are not exact multiples of 100 yds.

    For those that have the version with target turrets, do you find yourself dialing or holding with the reticle more often ?

    You can't get it with both the Rapid Z reticle and target turrets. The turrets are way more useful than the reticle IMO - for starters, the rapid Z reticle is designed for the drop of a .308 (IIRC) and god knows what MV. At least the turrets let you use your own drop data, and they lock really nicely.
