vx7 or monarch

Alight I have a question. I have a 257 why by bob hart. It currently has a 6-24 Nikon monarch. Now my dad just bought a gin at the auction that had a VX7 4-14 on it. He currently has no use for this rifle. With that said this is a medium range gun. Or max range for the 257 round on deer. So which scope would you use and why? I have gotten really use to the extra Magnification. Would it be worth swapping scopes and just getting used to the lower power of the vx7. Its a much more expensive scope from what I gather but is it that much better? Thanks in advance for the recommendations.

Leupold makes a VX7? There are no VX7 models listed on the Leupold website.

My thoughts exactly.

If you are use to the magnification then keep the monarch.i have same scope and love it. There are better though. But it's nice to be able to your group at 3-400 yards.

Yep! They were designed and produced in 2007 (IIRC) to be US made/assembled competition for high dollar Euro hunting scopes (Swarovski, Kahles, Zeiss Diavari, etc.) but never really grabbed the sales and interest numbers and was later discontinued (2011? or thereabouts) just after a few years and Leupold introduced the VX-6 model.
