The buckmaster would be 6-18x40 with a BDC reticle. Either way, i wanted to hear your two cents on these scopes.
i have had the Nikon Buckmasters in 3-9x40, not bad, but prefer the Nikon Prostaff over it. my next Nikon will be the Monarch in 4-16x40. i am fixing to buy my father a Nikon Prostaff in 4-12x40 for his Winchester M70, that's wearing a 40 plus year old 3-9x40 Redfield scope. i am going to get it for him for Fathers Day early this year.
