Why do you want to trade in the first place?
 
What do you think you would get from the trade?

Both scopes are good, I'd lean to the Luppy. I have both Nikon and Leupold and if I can get the Leo for the same I would.

I personally like the NIkon better with both at normal prices but if you could trade the Nikon for the Leupold it would be a hard choice. Scopes are both good Leupy has better Customer Service though.

I have both scopes and have shot 300 yd benchrest with both.  The VXIII is much better IMO and the opinion of everyone I've had shoot both rifles.  The Monarch is on my chopping block since it cannot detect bullet holes @300 yds while the Leupy does with ease even with 4less magnification.
 
No contest.  Leupold.  The Monarch wont focus for me and has a terrible adjustment range.  My shooting buddy has that 6-24Monarch and his is the same deal.  It just wont give a sharp image at distance like the Leupy.
