I was looking at the Nikon Monarch UCC 6.5-20x44 with illuminated mil-dot. Would a illuminated reticle be hard to use during daylight hours? Because i will be doing alot of day light shooting and a little bit of darker shootings. Thanks

Have that scope but with different reticle. You dont need to light up the reticle during daylight hours. The unlit reticle is usually easier to see, is more crisp and has more contrast to to the target during the day.

That's correct.

There's a knob in the back that allows you to turn the illumination on or off. When it's turned off, the reticle looks like any other unlit cross hair. 

 

Nikon's lit reticles are decent too. Not too bright to be totally useless like most other lower priced scopes. As a matter of fact, I had the 6.5-20x44mm with a lit Mil Dot.

Yes, I liked the scope a lot. The only reason I sold it was so I could get the New Monarch that's due out this summer....Or some time, maybe this year.

 

Also, the scope had way too much power for me and the type of shooting I do.

All in all, it's a great scope and a hell of a good bargain from SWFA. The scope had really good eye relief sitting on my .308 as well.

 

Never got BC caps for it.

 

Try this thread for the correct sizes. Just post the scope model and Brady will help you.

A VERY poor pic of the Mil Dot.

 

The dot's are close to an honest to goodness Mil Dot like the Super Sniper, but the post between the dot's seemed slightly bigger to my eyes. You won't have any problems with obstructions.
