I need a scope for a Remington LVSF in .17 Remington. Will be using Berger 25 and 30 grain match bullets. This gun will be used for predator calling (coyote, fox and bobcat) and some occasional summer groundhog shooting. Shots will be mostly 20 yards to 100 yards when predator hunting and may approach 300 yards max for groundhogs. I need a low enough power to handle low light and very close shots on called in predators. I'm in N.C. and except for a powerline or cutover, I will be mostly in the woods. Shots have often been in my lap in the past. On the other hand I would like to be able to stretch out when needed on predators and groundhogs too. These are the two scopes I'm looking at: New 2007 model (still not yet available) Nikon Monarch in 2.5 x 10 x 42 Nikoplex reticle and Bushnell 2.5 x 10 x 40 4200 Elite with Firefly reticle. I like the idea of the Firefly for very low light hunting and in dark woods and swamps. Does it really work? It turns to normal duplex in daytime. The 4200 is a little longer and heavier and a few dollars less than the Nikon. The Nikon seems ideal, but the duplex reticle they offer is a shade thin for low light in my opinion. The BDC reticle seems useless to me for a 17 Remington given for 99% of my shots it is a point and shoot trajectory at his velocity and yardage. Nikon also has a 3 x 12 x 42 with side focus as well, but I don't think the adjustment is a good thing for my kind of shooting and would hurt more than help. Agree? Leopold does not make a 4x magnification scope and I think that is a real plus for a light carry predator rifle on the East coast. Their 3.5 x 10 is nice, but for my use, I think the other two are better. Can anyone give me any advise on the relative merrits of the two scopes in general regarding optic quality/warrenty support and further thoughts on the Firefly and the Nikoplex reticle?
