Thats hard to say. Best means different things to different people. The 3200 is a good rugged scope that is a very good light gatnering scope. The Monarch ius a great scope too but where I live, it will set you back more money wise than the 3200. I would be happy with either. However I would buy the 3200.

Unless your eye can tell a difference by looking through them each...whichever is cheaper. They both have good followings...but I do hear more about the elites (positive things)

I prefer the 3200.
But to throw another wrinkle in your plans check out the Weaver Grand Slam. I think its a better scope than the two you mentioned.

Iown a 3200 with Rainguard and Firefly reticle. Can't say that I'm very impressed with it. Wish I owned the Nikon instead.

I've now got three Nikons and they have never failed me. I used to have Leupold but foundNikons to be as good but less expensive. However, I havenoticed that Nikon's prices aresneaking up.

Ican't compare it to the Bushnells, I've never shot one.

I like Nikons. They are about the lowest priced scope I think is worth putting on a rifle. In my opinion, the Buckmaster is hard to beat, especially for the price.
