bman I just wanted to say thank you for your help and your products. I am temporarily rich from having major back surgery and the WC suit settled, I got a nice chunk of change, and I started buying some toys, including a Rem 700 .308 'tactical rifle'.
I could have had whatever scope I wanted, "WITHIN REASON", of course, and I chose Nikon Monarch and I am extremely happy with my decision.
*I COULD* have bought a Trijicon AccuPoint 5-20 if I really wanted, or even a Leupold Mark 4 , but I did not, I chose the Nikon Monarch,. And again, that has made me happy, and satisfied, which IMHO is all that matters.
