308jagermeister, first of all, love the screen name.
As far as glass goes, on my two latest additions, one is wearing a Leupold VX II, 6-18 AO, with target turrets. The other one is a Nikon Monarch, in 6.5-20 AO . I love both, but believe it or not, the Nikon is amazingly clear, and I can see clearly before legal lite, and way after also. They both hold zero very well, and they do return to zero.
I also have one set up with a VARI X III, 4.5-14, AO, with standard turrets. That one is amazingly clear as well.
As rifle scopes are a very personal preference, if I was in the market for another scope, I would definitely consider another Nikon Monarch. I hunted with both this past deer season and was pleased with both of the first two mentioned. Those are my two picks, and I recommend either one.

P/S, as far as reticles go, I prefer standard crosshairs versus the BDC type. They are ok, but sometimes make the field of view too busy. I would rather dial it, then rely on the little circles.
