2. redfield rev 3-9x40              $189
3.vortex diamondback 3-9x40 $199
4. sightron 3-9x42                   $219
5. bushnell elite 3200 3-9x50  $199 <<---would like a 40mm but will use a 50mm

I think the monarch is worth the extra $50.00.

The Nikon Monarch is a really nice scope! I would go with that one, but the Redfied Revolution is hard to beet for the money if you are on a budget. I have a Redfield Revolution 4-12X40mm on my 30-30 and i like it.

MAKE SURE YOU LOOK HERE:
http://www.opticstalk.com/sightron-closeouts-an-incredible-savings_topic34167.html
 
Incredible scopes the SII Big Sky and the SIII.
 
Value that I don't believe can be matched at the price range even before you get a bill back in the mail.

Reticle is personal preference... Zplex in my eyes is best plex type...other than that all i would look to is a #4.  Alot of variation in, just say, plex and #4, in different brands.  Power is equal across the board for brands.

Price limits those options severely.
