scope choice

What scope should I put on my 22-250? Were I hunt the longest shot is about 400 yards. I am looking at a Leupold 3x9 L R D or a Nikon 3x9 coyote ? What about other scopes? Thanks for the info.

Re: scope choice

I'm not sure what your budget is, but take a look at Zeiss Conquest scopes. You can get their 3-9x40 for $399 right now. You won't find clearer glass, especially at that price. There are a lot of other scopes out there selling for more money that are a lot less scope.

I recently picked up a Conquest 3-9x40 and I sent it in to the Zeiss custom shop and for $100 they installed the exposed target knobs. I'm very happy with it.

Re: scope choice

Kinda depends on the intended game.

If you are planning on hunting small varmints, you would probably really benefit from having a little more power.........something like 12X or maybe even 14X on the top end........small meaning prarie dogs, ground squirrels, crows, ect.

I've also got a Zeiss conquest, it's the 4-14X model. Do like it, good scope for the money.

Re: scope choice

I've got three vortex vipers and they are amazing for the money. Zero regrets and the warranty is unreal.
