Heck I'd be happy to just shoot an elk.

I'll be moving some gear around and giving my Gunsmith his beer money next week. I just got the Limbsaver recoil pad for my .300 Win Mag today. Now I need the shipment from Midway and I'm good to go.

I'm interested myself

I'd like to hear from someone who owns both the Zeiss (I own three) and the Minox and have them say that the Minox IS the equal of the Zeiss. I've read lots of people claim that the new Redfields are the equal of the VXI Leupolds as well, while being $50 less. What possible purpose would Leupold have in making a LESS expensive scope that's better than one of their own?? None, that's what. Of course, you all know that Leupold makes them both!

I have zero doubt it's a fine scope, but I'm not believing it's the equal of the very fine Zeiss Conquest. Sorry.  Whistling

Would you believe that a  GMC

Would you believe that a  GMC Pick-Up is equal to a Chevy Pick-Up?

That's the Zeiss/Minox difference. One is assembled in Germany and one in the U.S.A.. Minox is a subsidiary of Zeiss and uses the same glass.

I'll spend some time looking through the Minox and a Zeiss and let you know.
