Nikon Monarch 4-12 AO

Got to put my new scope through the paces today. I started by checking my zero at 100 yards. I then dialed up to 500 and down to 100 for a second shot. Next, I dialed up to 800 and down to 100 for the third shot. Three shot group = 5/16!


I then dialed and shot at 500, 600, 700, 800,and 900 yards. Unfortunately I was out of bullets to recheck zero, but I scored first round hits at 5,6,7, and 800 yards.

I am impressed with this scope!

Sounds good...I have the Monarch 3.3-10x44mmAO on order now. I kind of thought it to be a good scope for the money.

HG,

14 inch gong. I was testing my drop chart data. I would shoot the gong to see if I was close, then shoot a plwood target, for precise elevation data.

Re: Nikon Monarch 4-12 AO

My gong is also 14 inches. It is placed at 1150 yards for use with my 300 RUM. After the 1st initial shot, which is usually pretty dang close, although I have yet to hit it on my 1st shot, I can usually 90% of the time, hit it on my 2nd and 3rd and 4th shot. I just wished I had more power then 14x now.
