Re: Newbie scope question
I have never used the BDC. I've looked through them. If I were going to get a Prostaff, I'd look at the BDC because I wouldn't trust the tracking to constantly adjust the scope for elevation.

One thing to note is that the buckmaster has a thicker reticle than the monarch and the monarch has a thinner reticle than the bushnell 4200 (at least it seemed like it to me), but the Leupald vxIII does have a slightly thinner reticle than the Monarch...
