I'm looking at a buddy's 4x16 50mm Burris Black Diamond w/Ballistic Plex reticle and side focus.  It's pretty much new (bought new in August, mounted & zeroed a month ago) but now he needs $$ and offered to sell it to me.  To my eyes, the glass is pretty good but I only looked through the scope for a minute or so.

 

Does anybody have first hand experience with this particular scope.  I'm trying to determine whether this glass & overall performance is as good or better as the following:

--New Nikon Monarch 4x16 42mm w/side focus & mildot;

--"old" Nikon Monarch 2.5x10 50mm w/BDC;

 

Main application will be atop a .308 FN SPR for paper punching out to 500yds and some deer/hog hunting from a fixed position (ie--shooting house w/a good rest).

 

Thanks!   Just want to get some imput from some other eyes!

I have a 4-16x50Black Diamond Ballistic Mil-dot on my 300 win mag.  I shoot out to 1000 yds with it.  I really like it.  Unfortunately I don't have any experience with the Monarchs, so I can really compare them.  I was out shooting last weekend and had no trouble picking up 9 in targets at 500+ yards.  Very clear and bright.  I don't think you would go wrong buying it.
