The .20-250 an extreme predator rifle

Rifle – Scope
On this rifle though, I knew that with the Nesika, I was starting with a somewhat larger and heavier action than usual. I also figured that the barrel would end up longer than usual as well. So I knew from the start I’d end up with a somewhat larger and heavier rifle. So, I thought, “what the heck”, may as well add a few more ounces and try another scope besides the Leupold. My main criteria were simply that I wanted something in the same magnification range, and I wanted constant eye relief. Oh, and I wanted glass that I thought was better than Leupold. In the end, I chose a Zeiss Conquest, 4.5-14x44. It has turned out to be precisely as I had expected and hoped. Other than being larger and heavier, I really do like it more than my Leupold’s. And, as it turned out, the place I found the best price on the Zeiss, was giving away free Talley rings and bases with them. And coincidentally, Talley is one of the few manufacturers that has a standard set of bases that fit the Nesika action and also come with the larger 8x42 screws that the Nesika is tapped for. Perfect!
