Re: Looking at a Nikon Buckmasters-opinions?
I have two of the bm's including the one you speak of. A word of warning: these scopes are cursed with what some call "tunnel" vision", like looking thru the wrong end of a scope. For a more "spacious" view and better glass, the 5-20x Weaver Grand Slam would be good, if you don't have to have side focus. The new Leopold VX-2 in 6-18, or the Vortex Viper, for a few bucks more, also would be good options.
