Nikon Monarch Scope (mil-dot)



After doing some poking around. It looks like the Nikon Mil-dot is the same thing as the new Gen 2 mil dot.

Am I wrong...Did I read the wrong things :)

I've got a Nikon Tactical. I would say the reticles are similar.

The Nikon is on the second focal plane, and the Gen II is first focal plane....or vice-versa

Essentially, the Gen II retains the same mil relation value through it's range of magnification. The Nikon is only at correct mil value at 10X on my 2.5-10 x 44.

The Gen.II is from Premier Reticle, right??...sakofan.....And, I think MM is right, they are first focal plane reticles.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
