What do you think? For ranges up to 130 on rabbits and squirrels to coyotes
I'm more of an open sights person. I'm just getting into scopes. For that distance 3-9 will
Be fine.

Borntohunt, the difference is on the buckmasters line of nikon is fully multicoated glass where the prostaff is multicoated, if you know optics then u know what that means. But the vortex diamondback you so highly argue about, does show a lack of know how in optics. I have delt in optics longer than you have been alive an in no way does 6 an 2 or whatever you mean makes sense. The diamondback is the lower end vortex an has short eye relief the end. Take advice from those of us that have the experiance to share.

For me I get about 3.5 inches of good view. Not. 6. Inches. That eye relief suits me just fine. And yeah I ain't rich enough to enter into the viper line jack! I know quite a bit also but not the wisdom and experience you've acquired. I've been looking at the conquests and the elite 4200 w/ the famous Rainguard. The new PROSTAFF 5 riflescope features Fully Multi-coated lenses. In order to reduce light loss coating is applied for anti reflection allowing for more light to go through the lenses of the scope. The more lenses in a scope the more light is lost. The coating can even give a little color. The scope with fully multi-coated lenses means that all air to glass surfaces of each lens of the scope is coated with multiple layers of coating. Nikons claim 95% light admission through dusk and dawn along with other manufacturers.
