I have a 3.5-14 with the #1. I have it on a semi-custom 700 elk rifle in 7stw. I really like the reticle for use in dark timber, to long shots in the clear cuts. Compared to my Swaro Z5 3.5-18 on my ULA, I'd just barely give the nod to the Z5 optically. Both are VERY clear and crisp, the Z5's picture just "jumps" out at me a little more. The only other scope I'd love to compare would be a summit, as the Z6 is just TOO expensive for an elk rifle I "need" 1 week out of the year.
