Re: Best $500 Long Range Scope

Dollar for dollar you can not beat a Nikon Monarch, period.

They been tops in photography for a looooong time because they make the best stuff. If Nikon made a $1500-$2500 rifle scope you could read a book at 1000-yards and you'd have to wear sunglasses when looking through it or the brightness would blind you - even at dusk.

In all seriousness - I once purchased a cheap Pro Staff scope for a 45-70 I was working up a load for and I was completely surprised how crystal clear, bright, crisp, and rock solid tough that scope was, compared to the Leupold VXIII and Mark4 scopes I had at the time - I no longer have any Leupold scopes because they are all Nikons now.

Better scope, less money, lifetime warranty.

    He didn't pull the trigger either, the bullet got scared and took off itself.

    Guess I can now write off any additional serious replies, huh?
