Re: Nikon Coyote Special scopes
Again, thanks to all. I ended up purchasing a Nikon Monarch with BDC reticle. The glass is very good and the circles on the non-coyote versions of the BDC reticle are all the same size and much smaller. Sighting in a 200 yards was easy and after chronographing my muzzle velocity and using Nikon's Spot On ballistic software to determine my drops vis a vis the circles, the scope is easy to use and I am able to quickly and accurately adjust my aiming point(s) and hit my targets at varying distances.
By the way, cwinner, all second focal plane, adjustable magnification scopes are only "perfectly" accurate at one (usually the highest) magnification level. This fact is in no way unique to the Nikon Coyote Special scope.
