Give the choice, which one? These are all about the same price. I am wanting to replace my Zeiss 3-9x50 for something with a bit more magnification

Just put the 4x20x50 adv bdc Monarch 5 on my new 28 Nosler. They are now $100 off at Optics Planet. Good scope for the money imo.

The Leupold is the only one I have any experience with, but I love it. I bought my BAR 300 WSM the first year they came out and it has been on top of it ever since. It has never needed any adjustment except when I have messed with it wound up right back where I started.

I'm not sure about that leupold reticle, it looks sort of "fine" to me.. I like a duplex.

Also, i'm sort of old fashioned. I dont' want a scope that has any other knobs/adustment besides the stardard old "up/down & left/right" .. I'm not opposed to the BDC reticle though..

The Nikon has a SF/AO knob. Also comes with extra tall turrets with spring loaded Zero Reset. Can order custom ones from Nikon once you know velocity of ammo.

in my opinion, Leupold VX-3i 4.5-14x50B&C Matte Black w Boone & Crockett Reticle will be my number one option. Though Zeiss is also a good optics manufacturer. but all these depends on the reason that made you think of changing your scope. But then, it will be a better idea a serious hunter to have at least two or three scopes.
