If you hunt thick woods, the 4x on the low side is pushing it.

I've only had one Nikon Buckmaster but it was a 6-18X40mm and every rifle I mounted it on required nearly the full adjustment of left windage to get it on paper at 100 yards. I sent that one back on warranty and quickly traded it towards a Leupold on the sample list.

I've got one of the 6-8x40 Buckmasters and can't say that I'm that impressed with it. The glass quality just isn't that good but then again it's not a big money scope.

I'd go with the Monarch if you can swing the extra jingle. I have no complaints with my Buckmasters 3-9X40.

Lately I've been going down in size rather than up in size for whitetail scopes. I really like the 2-7X32 I have on my muzzleloader. I seldom shoot it over 6 power. You may be hunting in areas where you get a lot of 300 yards shots, where the higher power and larger objectives have a benefit. For me, I go for light gathering and field of view, and I mount it as low on the gun as I can.

In my opinion there isn't a Nikon made that is worth the box it comes in.
