Tikka T3 Varmint scope help
I'm looking for opinions on a new scope for my Tikka T3 Varmint 223. The rifle is going to be used for punching paper out to 300 yards 90% of the time with the occasional chuck hunt at a buddies parents dairy farm. I'm waffling between a Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44 and a Nikon Monarch 5-20x44.
Both have 95% glass, side focus and BDC recticles. They both have similar power ranges. The Vortex has a 30mm tube and the Nikon a 1". The price for the Viper is $20 less than the Nikon.
Any help deciding would be great.
