    I'm going to buy one of scopes:
    - Weaver Grand Slam 4.5-14x40 AO
    - Nikon Monarch 4-12x40 AO
    I need you advise. Which scope has bigger FOV (field of view)? On www side I read that Weaver GS has 10,5 feet for 14 mag., but Monarch only 8,5 feet for 12 mag.
    Is it truth, more or less?
    How about the sharp range for this scopes?
    I like when scope has sharp view for long distance, I haven't to use AO so often. Which is better? What do you recommend?

    Get the leupold 4.5-14x50. Mine has about 120 MOA of elevation travel which means that you do not have to get an expensive base to give you additional minutes of angle travel to shoot out to 1,000 yards or more. I do not know what the total travel is on either of the scopes your looking at is. I know one thing for sure, if you decide to sell your leupold it will still be worth a lot 10 years down the road.
