Easily the Nikon for the money. I have a Leupold VX-1 and it is nice. It does have a larger field of view but it cost $100 more than a Nikon. To get the magnification you will want on your varmint gun will cost you even more. I`ve seen the cost sheet on Leupold scopes. Their mark up is ridiculous. Best scope for the money is the Nikon. A 4.5-14x40mm on that .22-250 would be perfect.

answer 10
A 22-250 can benefit from a higher power than the 223, but going more than 18x is a waste of money. I have found the Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 more than adequate, even for 500 yard shots at prairie dogs. I also have a VXII 6-18x40 on a 220 Swift and prefer the Nikon on the 22-250. (Plus it cost $100+ less).
Hope this helps.

I have two Leupold VX1's and a Nikon Buckmaster. All three are 3-9 x 40 mm.The Leupolds cost a little more but the Nikon matches them. Unless you want to pay more to get a gold stripe on the scope. The Nikon does seems a little brighter. Next scope will be another Nikon.

I`ve never owned a Zeiss but I own many Nikon`s. The question I always ask myself when considering a higher end scope with a Nikon is that even though there is a possibility that the more expensive scope is better, is it twice as good? It costs twice as much (at least). The answer to that question is, NO. Unless I`m putting it on a .50 BMG or money is simply just not an issue I`m buying the NIkon.

they're both great scopes. the conquest is a cut above the buckmasters. its closer to being on par with a monarch and is brighter than the buckmasters. the zeiss reticles are very easy to see. I put a conquest on my .270 and it is very durable and extremely reliable.

My Ranger has an oversize roof and a winch on the front and a rear bumper that sticks out about 5" from the tailgate and this cover works great. The Ranger is listed right at 120". The winch adds 9-10" on the front and the bumper adds about 5" in back.
This cover is tough! I use it as a travel cover to protect my windshield. Be sure to put a couple ratchet straps over the top to minimize the billow. Mine has over 1000 miles on it with no sign of damage.

Chris, The Nikon Buckmaster Series scope will work very well with your Remington 700 30.06 rifle. If you choose a BDC reticle scope, make sure you check out Nikon's
Spot On Ballistic Program. There you will be able to dial in your rifle,scope and ammo to achieve the greatest possible accuracy. If you choose a Nikoplex Reticle, you can still get plenty of ballistic information to make your shooting more accurate.

Yes, it will work just fine for that. I've got one of a Ruger #1 30-06 and it stands up to the recoil well. You will be happy with it. Plus, the lifetime warranty should cover anything you encounter in the rough terrain, but I highly doubt you'll ever need to send it in.

I think its a perfect scope for a 270. I have the 4.5-14x40 BDC on mine and I love it. The BDC matches up well with the caliber and the 14 power lets you zoom in enough to get the max effective range out of the gun without bringing out the shakes.

Question

How does the Nikon Buckmasters compared to Nikon Prostaff?

I am mainly interested in using it on Savage 93R17 BTVS for Target shooting. Range from 100 yds to 300 yards. Accuracy and easy to use, clarity are my main focus. Thanks.

When comparing the Nikon Buckmasters Riflescope (712275) to the Nikon ProStaff Riflescope (713666), the Buckmaster has slightly better quality glass which would allow better light transmission in low light conditions. Both of these scopes have a Nikon BDC (bullet drop compensator) reticle option that works well for longer shots. Overall, the Buckmasters would be a better investment.

I have the exact same rifle mounted with a Buckmasters 4.5-14x40mm. The only reason I did not buy the Prostaff for that rifle is that I wanted the extra magnification and the side focus. As far as the clarity and accuracy goes you will be happy with either (I have Prostaff scopes on other rifles and love them). Being as you will be target shooting instead of hunting and can choose not to shoot in low light situations I don`t think you will miss the additional 2% of light transmission if you do choose the Prostaff. I hope this helps.

Yes, Nikon`s muzzleloader scopes seem to actually be Buckmasters scopes with additional eye relief and BDC reticles specific to the ballistics of a muzzleloader. I have a 2-7x32 on my .50 cal. CVA and a 4-12x40 on my .45 cal T/C. They are also similiarly priced so you could go with either and not go wrong.

s the cabela's expert stated, The Nikon Buckmaster Scope can be mounted on your Savage Model 24 combo rifle. The key will be having a qualified gunsmith drill and tap a base plate so that you can mount the scope correctly for appropriate eye relief. The .223 Caliber/.12 Gauge combination would be my one gun survival tool. Other's I have chatted with say the same. They also said do not expect MOA accuracy with this combo gun. The 12/.223 that you have is one of the most popular model's. A scope suggestion, take a look at Nikon's PROSTAFF ShotgunHunter 2-7x32 BDC 200. You can dial in the BDC reticle to your .223 cal. and the lower profile scope will fit your rifle better and still allow for accurate shotgunning at 2X magnification.

All depends on what kind of distance you are going to shoot. I am shooting mine out to 300 yds at the moment and plan to move out to 500 when I can tighten my groups but probably cant do that until I reload my own ammo. I have it on an AR15, in 5.56 ,Doublestar with 20" stainless barrel. I was fairly amazed at how close the BDC's were with my caliber. That may change if I change loads.

You can go to Nikon's web page and it has a true zero calculator where you can put in your bullet weight, speed, altitude, temperature, etc and it will give you the true range for your bullet, for each circle, even down to point where the crosshair becomes thicker. The Nikon BDC is an incredible tool. I just made a 684 yard shot on an elk using a 300 Win Mag and the Nikon BDC. I've put one on most of my big game rifles. I haven't tried it on my .223 yet, but it's a good idea. I wish you luck with your varmint rifles, I know I love it on my bigger guns.

Absolutely. The Buckmmaster Series of scopes has excellent clarity and light tranmission. There are a number of magnification choices to meet your all your hunting needs and it will stand up to the 30-06 recoil like a champ!
Check out the BDC reticle and Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program to really get the most accuracy out of your rifle,scope and ammo.

I believe this is a wonderful scope for all rifles. I've put it on a Browning BAR 7MM Mag and hit targets out to 450 yards. I've put one on my Browning BAR 30-06 (which I've only sighted in so far). I've also put one on my son's Ruger Hawkeye 270 and he's used it to take two deer and an elk, in Idaho. Using this scope on my Ruger Hawkeye 300 Win Mag, I connected on an Elk at 684 yards last fall (one shot). I even know a guy that put this scope on his Marlin lever-action 30-30, and he loves it. Make sure you get the BDC - It works!

The kick of a shotgun will not mess with this scope. I have a buckmaster on my .30-06 and have shot 100's of rounds through it with no effect on the scope. These scopes were designed for use on high powered rifles, so they will handle a shotgun kick just fine.

You will not have a problem using any of the Nikon scopes in the manner you describe. Should be quite a nice little rig when you get it all mounted up. If you are choosing a BDC reticle scope make sure you check out Nikon's Spot On Ballistic Program to get the most acuracy out of your rifle,scope and ammo.

Nikon Buckmasters Series Riflescopes, Item: IK-712275, is a suitable scope for caliber rifles. The BDC reticule is not caliber specific, and would need to be tested at various ranges.

Walter, The Buckmaster 4.5-14 will work very well on your Marlin 1894 44 mag.. I would think the lower magnifcation and higher field of view will work to your advantge when shooting this rifle. I would also look for a hammer extension such as the one from Uncle Mike's, item # IK-290226, this will make cocking easier with the scope in place.

The side focus is quick and easy to adjust. Have 2 of these on varmint rifles and it really is slick when looking at prairie dogs at a few hundred yards.

answer 2
I'm currently running Nikon Buckmaster scopes on 2 of my coyote rifles, one is a 4.5-14x40mm and the other is a 6-18x40mm, both are side focus. My brother in law also has a 6-18x40mm on his .243win A-bolt for deer.

The side focus is fairly tight, which I like. It offers resistance to turning, and it lets me dial in the paralax setting exactly where I want it without blowing by back and forth repeatedly. It's MUCH faster than focusing parallax with an adjustable objective, and requires much less movement.

The scaling (50yrds to infinity) on both of my scopes are pretty accurate. Ususally ideal setting will be just a hair within one side or the other of the labeled tick marks. We regularly shoot out to 400 and 600yrds over the bench with these rifles, and have taken coyotes past 500yrds with them.

Question

How to find the proper flip open scope cover for this scope?

I recently purchased the Nikon Buckmaster 3x9x40 with BDC. I saw in a Cabela's catalog that there are flip open scope covers that go along with this, and it gave the code, but I wasn't able to locate them on line. Also what scope mount do you recommend for this scope?

New to hunting with scopes. Purchased Nikon Buckmaster scope from Cabelas. Want to mount it on a Remington model 700. The rifle is tapped for a scope mount. I think I need a base and rings? I plan to attach the scope to the rifle. What parts offer the best mount?

To mount the Nikon Buckmasters Series Riflescope, item # IK-712275, to a Remington 700, Centerfire Bolt-Action rifle, a mount base and rings will be required. Mounting a scope on a rifle requires a model-specific mounting base and rings of sufficient height to ensure clearance between the scope and barrel. Scope manufacturers normally recommend mounting the scope as low to the receiver as possible. Different ring heights are offered to achieve the needed clearances.

For assistance, please call Cabela's at 1-800-237-4444 and ask for a Product Associate.

I have one om my Remington 700 25-06. I use the Leupold base mounts and rings. Since it is a bolt action, I recommend the two piece bases. Make sure the bases you purchase are for the Remington 700.

Yes it can be mounted on your Model 94. It will take a special mount because of the lever action.

All of the Marlin X7s I have seen are set up with a rail that is slotted for Weaver-style mounts, so Leupold's rings that fit Weaver-style mounts should work. Marlin's website lists the following for bases if your rifle does not have the mounting rail:

It looks like these bases will fit the Marlin 7 rifles:
Leupold® Two-Piece Mount Base - Matte
Item number: IK - 710527
MODEL:WIN 70-REVERSIBLE

Get a pair of Leupold Standard 1" rings to match up with them and you will have a good solid mounting for your scope.
