  I own a 7mm Rem Mag Model 700 BDL.  I currently have a Nikon Buckmasters 3-9x50 on it and i'm looking to upgrade.  I'm looking for advice.  I've looked at the Burris Euro Diamon and Black Diamond, Nikon Monarch, and Pentax whitetail unlimited.  I'm looking for a scope with at least 14 power or more 50mm lense that will perform in low light conditions, and be clear. Looking to spend 400-650.

  Mainly hunting, Very little bench rest shooting.  I hunt a place where 300-500 yard shots a not uncommon.

This Monarch comes with the BDC Reticle, and has been favorably reviewed.

On the sample list they have two IOR 2.5x10x42 and I know you want at least a 50mm bell. 

I have one of these and I'm hunting at least 10 to 20 minutes longer then my buddies.

I love that scope.....

Realistically your options are wide open.  First you must make sure at that distance your elevation adjusment is adequate unless you are using a ballistic reiticle.  You can spend all grades of money, but my opinion is buy what is adequate for your purposes.  Right now, (competitor) has a Sightron I believe 3x12 42 mm AO SII for 249 dollars, which is a killer of a deal and be perfect for your purposes.  Their scope are rock steady, clear and bright.  You cannot go wrong.  The price for this scope on other sights is as high as 450 dollars.  Good luck.
