Guys, my uncle is set on a 4-16x50 scope around $500. He has been eyeing the new Monarch 3. The store has them on backorder. (this gives me a minute to ask on here) Im not super impressed with the Nikon line, but I have no hands on experience with them. Whats the difference between the Monarch and the Monarch 3? I haven't found much info on this scope.
 
I suggested a 4-16x42 Viper HS or the Bushnell 4-16x50 Elite. I also emphasized on checking SWFA sample list... There is a few 4200s on there, and a few 6500s (2.5-16x50) He has heard good things on the 4200, and always thought the 6500 was out of his price range, but top of the line Bushnell. (before he seen the prices on the sample list)
 
I personally think 50 is overkill.. but my eyes are better and he thinks its an advantage, Im just going to leave it at that. I also think the 6500 my be rather large compared to scopes I have. (Swaro z5 3-18, Conquest 3-9, 4200 3-9, and most recently Sightron BS 3-12)
 
4-16x50.. What would you get? I guarantee the magnification will be cranked up to 16 on a Mod 700 RM hunting Wyoming, so if any I listed are better then others at that mag please say so.
