You don't shoot prairie dogs during coyote hunting time anyway. If you have one 22-250 get two scopes and change to the higher power scope in May and back to the lower power in Sept.

    i've had a 700 VS for about 8 yrs now and it has worn a 6.5 X 20 since i got it. It all depends on what you are used to and how it fits you.
    I get along just fine w/ fine with everything I use it for.

    From what I`m seeing here you all are proveing what I`ve always felt. You just can`t get by with 1 coyote gun. For close in shooting and when we are running them with dogs I carry an AR with a 3 x 9 Leupold. When I`m expecting long shots I carry a .22-6mm with an 8.5 x 25 Leupold on it. When packing I almost always have the scope on it`s lowest power. That was real handy a week ago Fir. when I saw a coyote runnung acrossed a field. At 300 yrds. it would have been real hard to find him in the scope on 25X, nut with it on 8.5X he ended up at the fur buyers.

    The next coyote scope i'm gonna get is gonna be the Bush. 3200 7-21X mil-dot, due to it's short overall length (12.8"), range of magnification, and the mil-dot's lower than highest power calibration but used at the highest power.

    I'm gonna suggest a Leupold Mark 4 3.5X10. I have two, one on my big gun and one on my "coyote" rig. I don't think 10X is too light for 500 yards and the 3.5 is just fine for up close and personal.

    I'm in the Same Boat

    Ok so I picked up a Win M70 Coyote in 300WSM yesterday and now am tasked with putting a scope on it. I have a Bush 3200 4-12x40 that I could put on my identical Winnie in 243 and take the Leupy 6.5-20x50 off the 243 and put it on the 300WSM. What do y'all think? I am kinda thinkin a Bush 3200 4-12x40 would be real nice on the 243 but I may just drop the hammer on a Leupy 6.5-20x40 for the 243 and put the bigger objective on the 300WSM...any thoughts?

    Like catfish, I have a 3x9 Zeiss on my .243 for calling and a 8.5x25x50 Mueller on my .204Ruger for long range.
