Re: Best scope for fairly long range deer hunting
Of the ones you have listed...I like the 4200. The glass is at 95% light trans. , has Rainguard coating, mine came with sun shade. The 4 power is lower than the others listed, which will give you a larger field of view and the 16 power is high enough compared to the others listed. I might even talk myself into another one. You should be able to buy the Buckmaster for a lot less than the 4200. I think someone here sells them on his site called The Opticzone...someone will correct me if I'm wrong on the address spelling. The Monarchs are made in Japan and you are right about where the Buckmasters are made. I've heard all good on the Buckmaster with the side focas, their glass is around 92% light trans. , the Monarch..?? not sure about the light trans. , the Monarch Gold is at 95% light trans.
I'm currently trying to talk myself into a Weaver Tactical 4.5-14 if still available rather than the 4200 in 4-16. I wish someone would help me make up my mine on these two. Hope this helps you some.
