All the power necessary for long range shooting, yet a big enough field of view at the low end for close shots. This all-purpose riflescope is an ideal choice for shooting in the field or on the bench. Scope includes an easy-to-reach side focus parallax adjustment for an unmatched sight picture from any shooting position.

Patented BDC Reticle

The various aiming points built into the BDC reticle can be utilized with Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology to give you exact aiming points at various yardages. Take the guesswork out of figuring elevation and bullet drop compensation.

Spring Loaded Instant Zero-Reset Turrets

To simplify field adjustments, Nikon has integrated this feature into all MONARCH 3 Riflescopes. Just sight in at 100 yards as usual, then lift the adjustment knob, rotate to your “zero”, and reengage.

Ultra ClearCoat™ Optical System

Nikon has engineered the entire optical system to provide the shooter with a bright, sharp and incredibly flat sight picture and light transmission up to its theoretical maximum- 95% for clear sight picture form dawn to dusk.

Spot On Ballistic Match Technology

The MONARCH 3 line is optimized for use with Nikon Spot On Ballistic Match Technology. Spot On allows you to discover all of the exact aiming points on the BDC reticle for your exact ammunition and load.
