    Hi   

  Newbie here, and  living outside USA, so excuse  bad english.
In next weeks I will have to decide among these scopes:
Sightron bigskyII  6-24X42 with target dot
Nikon Monarch 6-24X50 SF fine cross hair
Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24X50 1/4 MOA dot.
 
  This scope will be used for paper punching at 800 yds max,  atop Remington .308 Winch. with Krieger barrel(if this matter) and 20 MOA base
  What of these scope do you guys think will fit better my needs? 
  The most important factor is tracking hability, keep POI when changing magnification, clarity and that the reticle dont cover .308 holes at 100 yds.Big Grin
 Due the fact that I will have to buy the scope without even look trought one, what of these do you guys recommend based on own personal opinions?
  Thanks for your patience.
     Liseo

Of these three I would pick the Nikon because of the fine cross hair. You said that it would be for paper out to 800 yds. The 1/4 dot will be pretty big at 800 yds. Sightron may have a touch better glass but I have not used one myself. Others report that they are a fine scope.

With the 30 MOA of internal adjustment with the Monarch 6-24x it seems like it might be best to pick another scope for long range.

Vortex Viper 6.5-20x with 68 MOA of adjustment for under $400 USD  Big Smile

  Even using 20 moa bases and Burris off set rings do you think that I will be unable to reach 800yds with the Nikon?   I've read so good things about this scope that this will be my first choice.      Probably the scope that you recomend is very good choice too, but the others are longer time in the  market.

   Of the three you've listed, my recommendation would be the Sightron Big Sky 6-24 with the target dot recticle.  They have excellent optics, a better tracking system design than the Nikon or Bushnell (my opinion) and better customer service than either should you need it. The dot in it measures .27 @ 24 power and it has 60 moa of internal adjustment.  Here's a link to the specs.
 
   
 
  There's also a $50 rebate directly from Sightron that's good through December.
 
   Hope this helps.  -Al

Liseo, the guys who have a lot more experience than I do suggest it's not a good idea to have a scope at either end of its adjustment range too much....I think it would be like that with the Nikon.  You could give it a shot though.

I think the Vortex Viper fits in there with the others for a good deal less money and I like the Vortex company a lot.
 
If you don't mind whether its side parallax or adjustable objective, or mind paying the $150-200 extra for a little bit better glass, you would probably be very happy with the Sightron.
