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.

    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.
