Comparison: Bushnell elite 4200 - Nikon monarch

I am facing a standoff between the Nikon Monarch 6-24 x 50 SF with BDC reticle and the Bushvell elite 4200 6-24 x 50 Tacticle with 30mm tube and mill dot reticle.

Does anyone here have any info/ experience/ happy or horror stories to help me choose?

Scope would be used for plains hunting also, but mostly competition shooting out to 450 yds

your help apreciated

Of the two, I prefer the Bushnell 4200. More repeatable adjustments, and the glass seems pretty good. On the other hand, the Nikon Monarch X line seems to flip the order.

Re: Comparison: Bushnell elite 4200 - Nikon monarch

I've had two of the new Nikon Monarchs. Comparing them to my Bushnell elites 4200s . I couldn't get rid of the Nikons fast enough. I had a 5x20x44MM Nikon and I could see bullet holes with the Bushnell elite 4200 4x16x40 easier then with the Nikon.

I love my Elite 4200! The only thing that will ever make me get rid of it is a laser range finding scope that will cost me 5 times what my rifle did.

The glass on the 6-24x50 Bushnell I had wasn't that impressive. I compared it to my older 6.5-20 Nikons, I don't have a new Nikon. Mechanically the scope seemed fine.
