Re: Is the Nikon Monarch 3-12x42 Adequate for 1000 Yard Paper Punching
Opinions will vary, but mine is to plan on a higher mag scope for shooting beyond 600 yds.
I love 12X for just about everything, and use 12X-15X most all the time for normal hunting and shooting out to 500 or 600 yds, but 1000 yds is a long ways off. A 2" aiming dot is pretty small at 1000 yds, even with 20X. Sometimes the heat waves are too strong for using anything over 20X but it's nice to have it when the conditions cooperate.
Again, this is just one opinion, and 12X is probably adequate, just maybe not ideal.
Aim small = Miss small
