Re: scope selection help: max power ?

I have a monarch 4-12 a o. I really like this scope. I have read so many good reviews on the buckmark 4.5-14 sf I will make this my next scope purchase, unless nikon comes out with something better in the monarch line. I am impressed with Nikon in general. I think you get better than par glass, and my monarch tracks perfectly, as far as I can tell. Great value!

YZEATER, you keep pushing up the power. Take 50s advice and stay lower. I would look at the Nikon 4.5X14 SF Buckmaster and save a few bucks.

i was asking about the monarch's because of the quality of the glass over the buckmasters. i've checked out out the buckmasters and they are nice for the price, but thought the monarch's would be a touch better.

I would highly recomend the Leupold VX2, 6-18x40 Target, fine duplex. I have a couple of these scopes and love them. Good glass, good magnification, good tracking, good price $450. Cant be beat for a scope under $500 in my opinion.
