Yeah I was pretty shocked when they opened the box so I could look atthe rifleand it had the rings, bases, even swivels! Alright you have a valid point on why cut corners on the scope. My last 3 scopes have been 2 Vari-XIII and a Vari-XII. Have not owned a VX model and nothing in the Conquest line yet. NowI'm leaning towards a VXII 3-9x40(comforting) or a Conquest 3-9x40(something different). Which one between these two? I'm not really familiar with the Zeiss.I've had guys tell me the Conquest isn'tmuch better than a VXII, at least not $100 worth better. On the other hand I've been told for $70 more the VXIII is a much better scope/value. Everyone seems like they really like theirConquests though, any feedback?

I'd certainly pick the III over the II... however, I'd pick a Zeiss Conquest over the Leuppy (assuming you want very good optics at a reasonable price). The Leuppy certainly isn't bad (just think the Conquest is a bit better) and will do the job. Their CS is usually top notch so that is a plus on their side. Good luck.

I own a VX II 3-9x40 and have owned a VX III 3.5-10x40. I prefer the ZeissConquest 3-9x40. Here's one on my Sako 75 .300 Win Mag so you can kind of get an idea what it looks like on there. I know the .260 action length is shorter, but maybe this'll help you visualize it:

Here's the same rifle and scope but with Talley mounts instead of Optilocks.



I prefer the Talleys nowadays.

A burris fullfield 2 are a nice scope for the money i think its a better scope then the prostaff,i love mine got it on ebay (new) for i think it was $160. As for the 260 remington it will reach out way past 200 yards and kill anydeer more like 400 yards ,my friend kill a nice moose with the 260 remington in newfoundland at 297 yards with one bullet (think it was a serria 140 gr )

I certainly don't have the experience of most who have hnswered, or the ching for a Zeiss, so I can't compare thhose scopes, but between a VX-II and a Nikon I would gowith the Monarch. I had a VX-II 2-7 on mt .270 which gave me trouble, i exchanged it for a Monarch in 2-7. The monarch is twice the scope the VS-II was in optic quality and other features.
