    Can someone explain the practical difference in price between these three?
    Is the glass on the monarch that much better? Gather better light? Keep zero better?

    Nikon 4-16x42SF Monarch Riflescope
    $641 (msrp)

    Nikon 2.5-10x42 Monarch Riflescope
    $571 (msrp)

    Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 Riflescope
    $453 (msrp)

    Thanks!

    the monarch has a 4x errector and 30mm tube
    the buckmasters has a 3x errector and 1 inch tube

    Ive never used the monarch, but after my experiance with the buckmasters series I have no desire to. On the buckmasters tunnel vision was horrible, and I could not dial for range because the tracking was way off
