.243 Win Scope??

Looking for suggestions for a good scope (& magnification reccommendation) for my Savage BTH .243, gun will be used to hunt deer and coyote with shots up to 350 yds. I have a .223 Vanguard with a Nikon ProStaff 3x9-40 w/BDC that I really like. However, I would like a little higher quality scope for the .243. Up for consideration right now is the Nikon Monarchs & Redfield Revolutions. Would like to here all your ideas. Would like to keep scope/rings/mounts under $475. Thanks.

Im curious as to what mag range you guys would recommend for using a 243 out to maybe 450 yards max. I have a 243 that I use for deer and the optic is fixed mag, very old, and screaming for an update.

It kind of depends on you minimum range, but 4-12 is a good place to start refining for your needs

I tend towards 4-16s. Seems just right for most things.
