    Z5 or VX5

    OK so I'm looking for another scope I have a couple of Z5 3.5 x 18 already so what's everyone thought between the two.
    Only down side I see is of the Z5 is the lack of elevation. This will go on my 7mmsaum
    Thoughts please.

    Oh I will be following this thread with interest...
    Could you not run a 20MOA rail to help with the elevation?

    No, the scope itself has plenty of elevation, its the single turn 13moa turret that is the limiting factor

    No not yet the main requirement is it needs to have a quick foucus on the eye piece

    13.25 moa still gets you a long way out - should be around 700 - 750 yards with AMAX in a SAUM. Top of the post gives you another 4 moa in duplex reticle from memory. You can also remove the zero stop on Z5’s and get 30+ moa dial up using a 20moa base.
    Optical quality - to me eyes the Swaro has a definite edge.

    What about the Vortex Viper PST Gen II 3-15x44 has 25MOA per Rotation and 75MOA elevation, nice scope as well run one on my 6.5x.284

    Depends what you want the scope for, if you are weighing up the std duplex vs the firedot duplex then the firedot is a huge advantage for getting on target quickly, especially up close, can't see why anyone would get std duplex without the firedot.
    If you are considering windplex or impact 29, then obviously the firedot will be lacking some features.

    You won't regret it.
    Really wish they still offered the firedot windplex as IMO it was the best reticle offered in the VX6.
