I recently picked up a new rifle Smilie to use for deer, elk, and pigs here in the west (CO, UT, NV, ID, WA, CA). Most of my shots when hunting seem to be at ranges that are seldom less than 100 yards out to about 450 or so. Treating myself to a new scope for this rifle, I'm considering the following makes, models, and strengths: Leupold VX-3L 4.5-14x50 and VX-3 Long Range 4.5-14x50, Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50 and Euro Diamond 3-12x50, and Nikon Monarch 4-16x50 and Monarch Gold 2.5-10x50SF. Confused I've read all of the manufacturer's info I've been able to find so understand the tech side pretty well but am looking for any input I can get from anyone who has actual hands-on experience with any of these or who can speak first hand to relative advantages and disadvantages between the brands and models. Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

The new Leupold VX-3L might be a slight edge in optics over the Burris and Nikon.The Weaver Classic Extreme 2.5-10x50SF illuminated dot which I bought at closeout,is like the Nikon Monarch Gold.Nice optics nice features.
