Re: $350 scope selection
The Wotac glass is a little better than my buddies Buckmaster but it is so much bigger it really gives it an advantage. The turrets really set it apart from the Buckmaster, they are sharp and accurate with no wobbleness, 15moa per turn with double the elevation of the Nikons.
I think the Monarch would take it in optically, maybe, but the Wotac turrets are still better.
The reticle is really nice and I like it, but it is something that some don't like. The Wotac is a big rugged scope compared to the Nikons but I honestly really like the Monarch I just really wanted a 30mm tube, 50mm obj with lots of elevation and the Monarch didn't have it.
If your anywhere near SW MT PM me and I let you have a go with mine to see if you like it.
Or call Matt Wonders and talk to him, real nice guy that won't sell you something that will be wrong.
