I see Nikon binoculars and riflescopes are popular here. I am shopping for a more powerful scope for testing loads, especially at 300 to 600 yards, so I would need something I can mount on a lot of my rings and bases. I could go 30mm tube, but a 1 inch would be better for that. And I want to not have it be terribly large ( small enough for hunting), so I was looking at things like the Burris 4.5-14x42 PA, the Nikon Monarch 4-16x42 M308, or even as large as the Nikon 4-16x50mm ( I like the finer reticle ).
Just wondering about opinions of users of these higher-powered Nikons, and those who tried them but bought something else.
