And Just a better all around scope

The 4200, but the Primos is a great deal for the $$$ also.

True but only by .3"  They're both good choices but I prefer the 4200 all around.  The rainguard is excellent and I don't care for the BDC reticle personally. Although others here seem to like the BDC.

horsey is a touchy fellar mark, he thinks everybody is serious 100% of the time.

anywho, back on the subject, they are both good scopes, i give the 4200 kudos for rainguard and cs, the primos to me is so close in optical quality in my eyes its to hard to pick a clear winner, i like the extra eye relief for bench work, i dont know that the bdc reticule was the best choice, but it is what it is. for $200 you probably wont find a better scope. so for me i like them both i own both. is the 4200 worth $100 more than the primos, imo yes just for the cs and  the rainguard it is, otherwise no its probably not.

Yeah.  I'm still learning there's a lot of inside jokes here I'm not used to yet.  We don't do that on 24hourcampfire. wink wink
 
Just watched Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern all about Minnesota foods. You got some explaining to do Pyro.  Lutefisk?

dude lutefisk is disgusting!!! but wild rice on the other hand, is primo grub, lefsa isnt to bad either. them scandinavian people come up with some doozies from time to time.

you will learn that we are a much more laid back group than the "fire" we arent into the constant pissing contests, we have a few here and there but mostly we just talk about stuff.

The deli in St.Paul where they sold blood by the quart with blood sausage was nice too.  I used to work with an old guy who'd say "we used to eat everthing but the squeal".  Cultural stuff I guess.  Round here the Czech's like to eat nuts.  Every summer they have the "testical festival" an hour south of here.

I had lutefisk once, to me it tasted like a carp that was dragged of the beach several days later and put on a plate, it was terrible, but my inlaws are from Norway and said I had to try it to be part of the family. 
 Back to the comparison: Nikon if you want BDC, 4200 if you want rain guard, optically a draw.  no real losers in this group and probably the best deals going right now.

when i was growing up in wyoming we would go help our rancher friends brand there cattle and they would cook em right there on the branding iron fire, they said they taste like chicken, but so does everything else, and i could stomach the thought.

I don't think there is much difference between the two. If you can use the BDC the Nikon is cheaper.
Soap is for bathing, not for cooking. If I had lutefisk neither scope would be usable.
