I've seen the YUKON and it is an interesting option. Will you guarantee it if I am unhappy and return my money?

My friend has one and speaks highly of it. I like how it looked in variety of light situations also resolution is pretty sharp. It pretty lightweight and when it rained it held up really well.

I had the Yukon and it isn't to bad of a spotting scope clarity wise. I though it was bulky and fragile looking. I ended up selling it and bought a Celestron 80 for a $140 less and like it more.

Re: Burris vs Celestron?

I have Nikon P-223 BDC 600 Riflescope and I love it . I bought this to put on my Stag Model 6 AR with a 24" bull barrel. I wanted a scope that would allow me to shoot out to 600yrds or so. The glass is outstanding for the price. Zeroing the scope was easy, and the adjustments seem to track accurately, and easily return to their previous setting. I haven't gotten it out beyond 150 yards, but have shot many times and it's always been on zero.

I was having trouble deciding between the Rapid Action Turret that allows you to just turn the top turret to your yardage (rather than clicks, or mil's, you set it on 200yrds,300yrds, etc), and aim with crosshairs right on the target, or the BDC reticle with the dots to show your holdover for a given range. With the M223 you have to choose. I discovered the P223 has both systems in one scope. You can use the BDC if you want to holdover, such as if you are competing and need to shoot from 100 to 600 yrds rapidly and don't want to fiddle with the scopes turrets. Or you can use the turret if you prefer, and you will be able to use the crosshairs as normal with no holdover. Granted, the M223 has higher quality glass, but for my needs the cheaper price, acceptable glass, and both systems built into one convinced me to buy this scope.

Re: Burris vs Celestron?

Eric, You are dead on with your comment's. Nikon's P-223 scope's give you a lot of quality for a great price. I have used everyone of them on all manner of AR's and in many different situation's. From carbine competition's, steel shoot's and hog hunting, not one complaint. Definitely worth checking out.

My name is Bart, I am a longtime hunter and I am here to answer any questions on Nikon hunting optics you may have. I will also be sharing new products and specials on occasion.
