I am getting ready to purchase a new Nikon scope, but would like your guys input on which one you think would suit my needs better. The two scopes I am looking at are the Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40SF Mildot, and the Buckmaster 6-18x40SF BDC. This will be going on a 25-06 that I use for everything from prairie dogs, to coyotes, to antelope. I like the mildot reticle on the 4.5-14, but I like the target turrets and sunshade with the 6-18. As far as the magnification goes, either will have enough for what I do with this gun. I'm undecided as far as the reticle goes however. I dial my scopes for long-range shooting, but I do like the reference marks for those quick shots that often present themselves, especially with coyotes. Ian, I know you have vast experience with the BDC, and would like your input on how it compares to the Mildot. I like the concept of the BDC, but wish it had some reference marks for windage besides just the edges of the circles. Let me know what you guys think, or any experience you have with either of these scopes. Thanks.
