pentax light seeker 30, nikon monarch ucc , or burris black diamond? all are 6-24x50 with a side focus knob, and all have a ballistic reticle. the scope is going a weatherby sub moa varmint in .204 ruger. I cant make up my mind and I heard there were some very knowledgable people in ths forum. any help would be appreciated

Welcome to The OT.
 
I would be inclined to take a serious look at the Monarch and the BDC reticle. The Monarch is the only 1" tube in the mix too, huh?

I believe the Pentax Lightseeker 30 is made by Burris, but I don't know if they have all of the same components.

i too would take the monarch given the choices, although the blackdiamond is a pretty good scope, but you pay for it too

Always had good luck out of all the burris scopes. I'd opt for the Nikon with the BDC personally. And yes, to my knowledge Burris and Pentax are made by each other

The new NIKON, out of the group you named that's your best bet.
