Hey all,

I'm looking at the Elite 4200 6-24-50 side focus Mil Dot and the Nikon Monarch 6-24x50 BDC.  Can ne 1 give some incite on the glass quality, opinions about the Mil Dot vs. the BDC, and any other advice on these would be great.  I'm using this on a Next Generation Arms AR-15 .223 flat top.  The Bushnell has a 30mm tube but the Nikon claims better light transition.  This is so confusing!!

Bushnell has the Mil-Dot which I am a huge fan of and has the side focus which i like as well.  I am not big on the BDC reticle and the light transition will be so simalar i think you wouldn't be able to tell a difference.

I went through this dilemma b4 xmas.  Bought the same monarch you are looking at for my Browning 223WSSM, hasn't been delivered yet though.  Both scopes have side focus but I think the nikon has slightly better eye relief not that it should be an issue with a 223.  Mine will be used for hunting purposes so I liked that the monarch had different turrets that came with it.  Not sure if the elite does, never had one.  Both probably good scopes, in the end went with the monarch because I have issues with a cheaper bushnell on another rifle but thats my opinion.  You might also want to check out the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 as well.  Also the elite had 1/4 MOA where the monarch is 1/8 MOA but that will have to wait to be tested if true.  Hope this helps, can hardly wait till mine arrives.
