Re: scope selection for my rem. 700 sps 7mag
Everyone's eye is a little different, so what might appear to be a great scope to some may appear to be mediocre to others. Point being, try to get your hands on as many scopes as possible. When I was on a budget i looked at the Nikon Monarchs as well. I found them to be of very good quality for the price.... but decided against one because of the reticles (too light, I like the sharp black ones like Zeiss uses). I ultimately went with a Sightron Big Sky II and all I can say is ...WOW! One of the best kept secrets in mid-priced scopes, just as good as my Bushnell 6500 series and blows my Leupolds out of the water. Speaking of Bushnell, you would also be hard pressed to find a better value then their Elite 4200 series. Good luck with your search.
