I've come into some extra cash, and am considering new scopes for my 7 mag. Right now the top contenders are the Elite 3200, Nikon monarch and the Burris fullfield II. I didn't see anything on the Bushnell warranty. Is it a lifetime warranty like the Burris and Nikon? Any other options I should consider before purchasing? Originally, I was going to pick up the Nikon Buckmaster from the sample list, and I suppose that is still an alternative as well.

if the monarch's are still available which i think chris said they are getting more in all the time they are on sale and for the money they are the best buy and out of the three scope's you mentioned the monarch is the best scope optically. although they are all nice scopes, i own monarch fullfieldII and a few buckmasters. all are nice but the monarch is tough to beat especially since its on sale.

The Bushnell warranty from what I have read has a 1 year no questions ask replacement guarantee followed by a limited liftetime warranty to the original owner.

I went with the BDC. We'll see if it works with my rifle, but if not, it will still be fine.

I thought about the BDC reticle when I ordered and ended up with the plex. I am putting it on an M7 in .260. With the ranges I figure I would be using this at I didn't think I would need it. With all the positive comments around here about BDC's I'm starting to think I should have given it a try. Hmm, maybe I'll call SWFA in the morning.

Uh, oh. I'm not feeling good about my order right now. They've removed the 3-9X40 with the BDC from the website. I'm wondering if I might be better off getting the other reticle if they have it in stock. Any recommendations?
