have owned both, the monarch is a great scope, but the Zeiss is nicer
if you search around and find a Nikon about 1/2 the price of the zeiss

Thanks for your advise.

What would you consider the better recticle for small varmint like rabbits etc, for holdover shots.
 
BDC (Nikon)
Mil Dot (Zeiss - Nikon)
 
.22lr ranges 35 - 50 - 75 - 90 yds
.22 WMR 50 - 75 - 100 - 125 - 150 yds
.17 Mach2 100 - 150 - 175 yds
 
Once again many thanks for you help in deciding.
 
Danny

 Unless you have some kind of supercomputer for a brain, you're gonna get confused about which dot to use on whichever rifle you're holding at any given time.

Hi again.
 
                   really appricate your help.
 
There is a scope for sale on my UK forum.
 
IOR 16X42 Tactical with MP8 Recticle.
 
Price delivered $560.00
 
Is this too much mag for my requirements and is the price ok ?
 
I have another alternative which is putting my Kahles 3-9x43 Scope on the WMR & .17Mach2.
 
Your kind help is appreciated.
 
Danny

 The MP8 is considered by many to be one of the best holdover/ranging reticles available, and I agree. It should make a great varmint reticle.  16x is an awful lot of magnification for under 150 yards though. If you're shooting stationary targets and can take your time, it should work fine. $560 doesn't sound too bad a price, but I personally wouldn't pay even half that unless I had a real solid guarantee of some kind that I could inspect and return it if not 100% pleased with it's condition.

Many thanks,

                      I took your advise scope is in good shape, just a few small scuffs as you would expect on a working tool.
 
What made my mind up is that I do a lot of vermin control on a golf course, which means most of my shots are fired using Harris Bipod and sniping.
 
The scope was $500.00 delivered.
 
Many thanks
 
Danny
