What's the eye relief on the scopes? Your eye may have been closer to the scope, and everything is bigger when its up close...
Bingo! Couldn't have said it better.Ramone said:the prostaff has a FOV (field of veiw) of 7.3 ft at 100 yards at max zoom
the monarch has FOV of 8.4 ft at max at 100 yards
SO! because the image area is bigger on the monarch, the target appears smaller, even though the target image will be the same relative size at 12x
