Rifle: Sig 556. 224 Hornady 60gr V Max @ 2944 MV
Max range expected to be around 300 yds with shot coyotes being seen out towards 400+. Note: I don't tend to pass on yote shots.
Assumed scope requirements: (I may be all wet on this :
4 - 12 or 14X,
50 mm objective - maybe a 40 mm would work @ the low end of power range?
Decent reticle. MOA preferred. I could be persuaded on a BDC of some kind.
There will be no time for clicking.
I don't like Nikon's circles. . .
I also don't like the Pentax drop compensating reticle. The second cross line down is way too close to the zero hold line.
Secondly the Pentax has way to much parallax, even @ 100 yds. (No less than 2 MOA)
Looking for a moderately priced unit. No need to a NXS or Tactical type. I already have enough of those to go around.
I would hope that recommendations would be based on actual use/experience.
Recommendations will be well accepted.
