3 to 9 Monarch for 200 on the sample list with  90 day warranty Nikon factory refurbished
at SWFA  or new from SWFA 110% price match if sold from a Nikon dealer. Nikon does not honor warrenty from non-Nikon dealers.
Just my 2 cents

  It's nice to  see  the scope mounted on an accurate rifle and tested by a guy who knows how to SHOOT, too.

Thanks, Ron. That means a lot coming from you, my friend.  
 
RONK, you asked about and I failed to run a "box test" on this scope my last trip out. I was "on the clock" at this range and had to pay $10.00 an hour to just to shoot there.  No%20No
I'll knock that test out next go around at my other range...the FREE one. Big%20Smile

CT you do a fine job and use words and terms that are easy to understand. Far as how good you shoot.......I would never want to shoot against ya with anything more than a couple laughs involved. You shoot real good, I can count on one hand the guys I shoot around that can really shoot ragged one hole groups with any consistency.......

Thanks for the kind words, Dave, but to be perfectly honest, I usually only show ya'll my "good" groups!! Wink 
 
The groups I put up on this thread were from 168gr. SMK's, handloaded, checked for run out, shot off a bench and a Harris "S" Bipod with a rear bag, but were pretty indicative of the groups I shot overall that day.
I'll get the Deuce mounted up on my 16" Middy AR and give it a try with factory .223 ammo. The .223 should be a good match with the circles, I think.

 10 bucks an hour sounds pretty steep, but I guess it really isn't too far out of line from what I hear around the country for commercial range fees.  I just canceled my membership at my favorite range after ten years. $275 bucks a year, plus work days, but last year I went shooting there TWICE. I don't know if I will have any more free time this year, so I had to let it go.Sad
 It's a great place though, plinking range, pistol range, Hi-Power/Palma range to 1200 yards with 22 firing points, 500 meter Silhouette range, and a brand new indoor winter range.

 Yeah , the people were great, too. I guess the membership fee had a plus side in that it weeded out the goofballs. I left in good standing so if I want to go back someday, I won't have to go through the probationary period of limited, supervised access, etc.

Just think of ALL the good folks in your area that will be deprived of your mentor ship on the virtues of shooting "pie plates" if you don't "re up" at your range, Ron....It's not JUST ABOUT YOU, my friend....Think globally for Petes sake, Ron......Laugh

 Ha!
  There are many truly world class shooters at that place, and they taught me far more than I taught most of them! 
 I think I'll just go to the local 'sportsman's club' with the 200 yard rifle range and the $30 annual membership for a few years. Cutting weeds ain't so bad...

Here's some more pics.
 
First pic is the elevation turret. Kind of ho hum, but I thought someone might wonder. 1/4" clicks.
 
And heres the power ring, which in my opinion, should be a little wider and more knurled. It's a little too "metrosexual" for my liking. 
Gal 
If your using gloves, you may have trouble spinning the power ring. There is a "hump" on the ring that you can grab on too as well, but the power ring is kinda of funky overall.

Yup the power ring is a bit skinny for my taste, that BDC sticker is a bit much also. Nice review CT.......now I got another question......do you name all your guns and scopes?

I "thought" the BDC and the Mil Dots were, because my old Monarch had a etched Mil Dot, but it was illuminated.
Sorry folks....My Nikon Foo is weak...Hippie
