2 scopes, which one would better suit my need?
I am going to buy a scope for my .223 700 soon and am leaning toward burris because I have read many positive reviews about them. What I am wondering is which would better suit my needs, the Fullfield II 3-9 or the 4.5-14? I plan on using my rifle mostly for shots 300 or less but believe 500yd shots are definitly possible when after a coyote or target (hopefully If i get good at this I can step it up to further out). I plan on doing target and varmit shooting Pds coyotes etc... So I am wondering, Ive seen prices on ebay for the 3-9 for about 160$ and the 4-14 for about 260$, is the extra magnification worth the price increase? I really would only like to buy 1 scope that I coudl use on multiple rifles if needed (prolly a .243 is the next to come). Also note, I really dont wanna spend a ton of money, but would like quality.
So any imput would be greatly appreciated, ive read this forum just about every day and fell that since youall seem to know what ur talking about this could help me out. thx
