I'm a fan of Nikon scopes, I think they are the leader in the middle range rifle scopes.

I would recommend the Nikon. I have a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14x42 SF on my M1A and it's crystal clear. I love that scope. Check out my setup.


The scope is worth the money.

Yeah, The rifle shoots awesome. Our snipers had them in Iraq modded with the EBR.

Used the nikons for awhile, but have become a Burris fan the last few years. Their fullfield with the ballisticplex is a great scope. The multiple aiming point recticle comes in very handy, and works great with a little practice when you know your range. I have made 1 shot kills on deer out to 450 yards when using it.

I have been doing business almost exclusively with Jon and Tammie at www.theopticzone.com for a while now. I have found their prices to be among the best. Sure I still shop around, but it has been rare that I find what I am looking for, cheaper. I bought my last two New Nikon Monarch scopes from them, and no one else could get close.

Good Luck,

MET

I'm in the process of buying a scope for one of my rifles. I don't want to spend over $500.00. I've narrowed my choices to the Nikon Monarch 3-12x42 or 4-16x42or the Burris Fullfield II 4.5-14x42. Does anyone hunt with either of these? Any opinions on the two? To me, the clarity is just about identical in the two.
I have a monarch 3-9x40 and a 2.5-12x40 (i think) both are leapold level quality scopes IMO. they are great because in the morning when I can't see a tree 5' in front of me (not even a shadow) I look through the scope and I can see. its like broad day light. I actually pull back from the scope to see if its still shooting hours with this thing.
I had a burris on a 30-06, left the caps off the windage&elevation knobs while shooting. allways threw off my cross hairs. never had a problem with the nikons doing that. the burris will stay on when the caps are on oddly enough.
