I have seriously made myself crazy in the last two weeks. I bought a 22-250 with the intentions of learning long distance shooting. I immediately started researching scopes and have decided that the only way to figure out what any of these articles and reviews are talking about is to just buy one. I mean, I understand the difference between 1st and 2nd focal plane. I get it. I understand the difference between MOA and MIL. However, these understandings of mine, are theoretical. I have NO IDEA which combination of these would be my best choice "out of the gate". I want to start coyote hunting
and 5-600 yd shots could easily come about. My only scope experience is with my Leupold VX-II 3-9x40. It has a basic duplex reticle and is mounted on top of my 270. It's sighted in at 100yds. When a deer walks into a range where I feel comfortable, I put it on him and pull the trigger. I'm too uneducated on the subject of long range to even ask an intelligent question. Somebody give me some guidance! I can't let this rifle sit here "unscoped" any longer!
