Re: Nikon Monarch

I have a 5.5-16.5 x 44 AO and the only complaint I have is limited internal adjustment (40 minutes of angle). Other than that, I love mine. Clear optics, precise adjustment, tuff enought for the medium cal mag rifles.

Re: Nikon Monarch

AB,
I have a Monarch UCC 6.5-20x44 with fine crosshairs and it's a great scope. It's performance has been flawless on two different rifles. It tracks perfectly and has held its zero without failing.
I got the scope in a blind trade with another shooter/hunter from Ca. He wanted a Leupold 4.5-14x40 with heavy duplex reticles for night varmint hunting and I said what the heck. I have NEVER regretted the trade! Buy it. JohnnyK.

Re: Nikon Monarch

MidwayUSA has a sale right now on the Nikon Buckmaster 6x18x40 Side Focus for $259 I know you mentioned $250 as being the range of your budget so I just thought id add it in there. Goodluck either way!
