Decent scope under $300

I just purchased a Savage 16FCSS 223 to hunt coyotes. I need a scope (4-16X50?) to mount on the gun, any recommendations?

    Bushnell 3200 5-15x40 with tactical turrets. I really liked mine. Decent glass. Nice clicks.

    I'd also look around for a Weaver Grand Slam.

    geargrinder...can you provide a link of some sort for your scope? I'm looking at the Bushnell website and sure can't seem to find it.

    Here is this scope # and specifications but not the picture they are showing. They have the wrong picture on it.

    Here is a picture of the scope on my Savage 112.

    If you're just wanting to hunt coyotes with it, I would go with a 3-9 Leupold VX-II

    Go for the higher magnification if you plan to shoot prairie dogs at longer ranges

    Take a look at the Nikon Buckmaster series. I have two and love'em.
