Gents,

A little more info - The main reason I feel I need the power stated below is because we have a 3 point rule in Arkansas on deer. I use the power to help verify the buck is legal in good light as well as low light - which is a little more difficult at these ranges. Opinions please.

I need to stay around $400.00 - I need a variable scope with power up to 15 - 18 x 40 minimum. I make shots out to 300-400 yds at times under low -low light conditions (dusk & dawn). So far I have narrowed it down to the Bushnell 4200 4x15x40/50 AO OR the Nikon Monarch 5.5x16.5x44. Any suggestions/recommendations or pro/con experiences/comments would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

May I ask why you didn't include the Burris Signature Select 4-16x44?  I'm looking at the same scopes as well.

Good observation!

So far...I havent seen a whole lot of light transmission comments i.e brightness which is an important factor for me. I have seen/heard quite a few positive comments on the Bushnell 4200 and the Monarch both at 95% light trans I think. It would be good to hear from someone who has pros and cons on all three scopes.

I believe the Sig Select is the only one with index-matched glass.  However, I see people recommend the 4200 over it sometimes.  That surprises me unless it's for the Rainguard.  Someone point us straight, please
