I just bought a Nikon Monarch 3-9x40 for my 30-06 and I love the glass, but the field of view seems narrow. I can see a lot more though my old Bushnell Sportview. Does anyone have any suggestions for a scope with similar glass but more Field of View? How about a Mueller 3x10x44, or a  Sightron S1 3-9x40WA. I have not looked through either but specs look good.
Thanks...

Found one, but kind of expensive. Nice field of view. I would like to find a $300 version. ha...

FOV is a function of a variety of different parameters of your scope.  Go to the rifle scope school section and there is a good discussion there.  I won't go over those points, as it is an excellent piece.  But, looking at the specs on the Mueller at 10x mag., your FOV is only marginally better than at 9X mag., with your Nikon.  I like the Mueller, but would not replace the Nikon with it, the Nikon is a better scope and for 1X mag. more and a slight advangtage in FOV, for a probable drop in optical quality, it is not worth it.
