Now then, I can just feel the "Buy a second hand S+B" brigade warming up. Much as I hate to start my post on a negative that is not the question I am asking.
I am looking at two scopes to stick on a 222.
1) Nikon Monarch 5.5-16.5x44 Duplex Reticule.
2) MTC Genesis 5-20x50 Illuminated Reticule.
I can get both round about the same price. I already have a £1700 scope on my .270 so know all about quality glass but the truth is in years gone by I shot more vermin with an £80 Nikko Stirling than I can recall.
Anyone has knowledge of both these models for comparison is appreciated.
