Earlier in the year I bought a Marlin M77 Mark II 300win. I am getting ready to buy a scope for it soon and I must say that I am thinking hard about buying the Nikon Monarch 5x20x44 with the BDC recticles. I already have a 7mm with a 4x12x50 Leupold on it. For the most part I will be using this 300 for deer hunting locally but I also want it set up for long distance shooting in case I go out west again. What do you guys think. Is the 5x20x44 too much scope for my local PA deer hunting and what do you think about the BDC recticles. Any experieces or thoughts will be soaked in and appreaciated.
