Im looking for a new scope trying to stay in the price range of 250 around there. If anyone can tell me any experiences or good features about Nikon Monarch scopes. I would really appericate help and feedback.
i have three nikon scopes two 6 to 20 one on a 204 and one on a 223 the third is 4.5-14 buckmaster i really like all three but the monarch has a little better focus i dont think you can go wrong with a nikon scope but thats just my two sence [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
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.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
-- Well, at least I try --
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.

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!
