  I was wanting a new scope on my .243 and I cant decied on either a nikon buckmasters, monarch or a lepould VX-II  3-9x40.

 Also what is the differnece between 40mm and 50mm scopes because they have the same field of view.

Out of the three scopes mentioned my pick goes to the Monarch with the 50MM obj for

better low light capabilities.  If low light shooting is not required a 40MM obj will serve you

well. The Monarch will have the best glass quality out of the three.

Bushnell 4200 3-9x40 or the Zeiss conquest 3-9x40.  Both great scopes.

http://www.swfa.com/pc-1525-259-zeiss-3-9x40-conquest-rifle-scope.aspx

I would get the Bushnell, as the Zeiss does not have much on it if anything and at almost half the price it is a steal.

I have both of those scopes and I DO believe te Zeiss is worth the extra $$!  The eyebox seems better as does the reticle and the eye relief isn't even close.

Silver scope under $500.00, you didn't say what power or reticle so I gave you two different options.
