A couple of people have written to me following my selection of the Zeiss Conquest V4 for the Boomershoot ULD project, asking for details about the thing.
I know Zeiss glass, of course, both the binoculars and scopes, but not this particular model. So rather than waiting for for my poor efforts to zero the thing, here’s a decent video about setting it up to shoot. Note the groupings (but that lil’ 6mmBR target boolet would just bounce off a boomer instead of detonating it — assuming the wind hadn’t already blown it over into the next county).
Just one last point: I know that there are better scopes out there, but they cost at least double what the Zeiss V4 does — and they can’t be twice as good, because with any Zeiss scope we’re pretty far up the cost : quality curve already. And I didn’t have the budget for (to name but some) Swarovski , Kahles or Nightforce glass. I’ve used all those, or seen them used in the past with excellent results, but I’m pretty sure the V4 will not be disgraced.
