Terry,
Distances on Deer: Two longest 547 & 700 plus or minus
coyote: 600+
pd's from 1450-1800 yards

I use/used rifle scopes on 6mmx6.5x47 Lapua, 6mm-284, 6.5-284, 260 Remington, 6.5-284, 284 Win, 7mm Rem Mag Imp, and 7mm Dakota.
Most have muzzle brakes.
I typically use Leupold rifle scopes: Mark 4's or Vari X-3's, Nightforce in the future.

I guess I would ask you what distance goals do you have specifically?

Deer?
Varmints?
Paper or steel?

Terry

Have to ask the same question Ernie ask- intentions and range.

I am a hunter first and fore most. I use the Burris 3-12 handgun scope for all of my hunting needs.

Have taken deer from 250- 600 yards and have had no need to use a greater power.

If I were going to shoot further I would feel the need to put a rifle scope of greater magnification.

Up until recently I have used 3x12's on all of my HS's. Have been converting over to rifle scopes the last couple of months. so far have converted a 300 WSM, 7MM WSM and a 22-250 to higher magnifiication rifle scopes. will have two others changed by end of week. (270 WSM and a 325 WSM). just like the better glass and more magnification.
It does take some geting used to though
Even thiking about setting a couple of others up with very high powered scopes (12x42) just to do some long range match shooting.
as far as long shots, I have taken a few deer and one antelope past the 400 yd mark with the 3x12's and had no problems with using them. so it is whatever you like using

One thing that is important to help you choose between a rifle or pistol scope is your shooting position that you will use.I like to use a sitting position with the pistol grip resting on my knee like this .The seat I use has a built in backrest so I can sit anywhere and it carries like a backpack. A pistol scope works best for me shooting like this and have shot coyote out to 400yds but most of my shots are 200-250 yds.

I`ve been playing with a rifle scope on a .222 barreled Contender and it make me alittle neverious every time I pull the trigger. It hasn`t got me yet, but don`t think I would try it on anything with more recoil.
