    Hey Zak i have a quick question for you, I just recently bought a DPMS AR10 in 6.5 Creedmoor to do some long range shooting, I was looking at the Leupold VX-III 8.5X25 Scope and the Zeiss Conquest 6.5X20 Scope, Which do you think will work better for long range shooting, Also do you have a brand or model that you like better than the others?
