I'm wanting a different scope for my Ruger .243 for coyotes. I can get a good deal on a sealed VX3i 3.5-10x40 CDS and a used Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40. The CDS dial would be great with a starting 100 yard zero but I could also manipulate the zero yardage on the Zeiss to have a decent trajectory out to 200 yards.

I had seen an article awhile back where the new VX3i wasn't as good as it should and I also saw an article ragging on the Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 MC, Assembled in USA.  

Don't know if these article writers had a specific agenda to down play these scopes or what but what is the skinny based on those that have actually used them. Thanks.

The VX3's are good scopes.  They may not be the very best in their price range, but nothing seldom is.  I really like the CDS dials, I have them on a vx5 and vx6 and really enjoy using them.  On my two samples they are very repeatable and accurate.  On the VX3 its a smaller dial so likely not an apples to apples comparison.

Maybe also look at the Meopta 3-9x models.  They are excellent scopes in that price range.
