You did answer my q. 223 for daytime shooting, with 400 quid to spend = Nikon Monarch or Bushnell 4200. I would make sure you have 12 power, 40 front end should be enough but you may see benefits from the 50 at dawn.

Either scope will do what you need.

16 power will be just the job, you can always turn it down. I might be buying one of those myself :-)

i think they are worth there money, but different people like different things. my scope is a 8-32X44IR SWAT, it works well in all conditions and i can always clearly see what i am aiming at. in the box with mine were some extras, i got flipup covers & a 5in sunshade. just had a look on rimfire magics website and they are selling the model you want for £65! bargin. if its on a .223 why not get a bit more mag for the longer range shots? hope this has helped a bit.

Well these are all variable power scopes, so if you find 16 mag a bit much, you can just turn the mag down a bit :)

4-16 is a very good range too, enough for longer stuff but small enough to wind down should you need to.
