I was hoping to find a couple of subject matter experts out there - or at least somebody who slept at a Holiday Inn Express
regarding scopes. I'm in the process of buying 2 new scopes and was wondering what people thought of the new Nikon Monarch series (w/ BDC). I've got Leupolds Vari-X III's on my 2 Browning A-Bolts (.30-06 & .243) and absolutely love them, but thought I should at least ask the question as the Nikon's are less expensive and getting a lot of hype.
The 2 guns I'm putting them on:
1. Remington 760 Pump (.308) - Trying to decide between the VX-3 3.5-10x40 and the Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x42 w/ BDC. This gun was my grandfathers and currently has a 15 yr old Tasco scope - I might as well be using the iron sights.
2. Remington 7400 Carbine Semi-Auto (.30-06) - Decision between the VX-3 1.5-5x20 or the Monarch 2-8x32. I bought this strictly as a brush gun and should probably be using iron sites, but my eyes are getting old (like the rest of me).
Obviously there are a ton of other scopes to choose from, so if you've got other recommendations, I'd love to hear about them.
Thanks in advance for your assistance!!
