I'm still in the market for a long range scope. I currently own a Leupold Vari-X II in 3x9, and love it. I want to get a 6-20 power scope for varmint hunting.
In order of price from most expensive to least is:
1. Leupold Vari-X III 6-20x40AO (target) $496.00 (1/4 MOA adjustments)
2. Nikon Monarch UCC 6.5-20x44AO $467.00 (1/8 MOA adjustments)
3. Simmons White Tail Hunter 6-20x50AO $99.00 (1/4 MOA adjustments)
I would venture to guess that optic quality is also in this order, but not sure due to lack of experience with these other scopes. Has anyone or does anyone use any of these? Brand loyalty aside, which one has more quality (optics & craftmanship).
