    Hi,guys Im new to long range hunting ,but I live in TN and there are not many places to shoot past about 600 yards. I was wondering if anybody could tell me what the best kind of scope would be to get for around here . I have a 22-250 remington 700 and its deadly accurate out to 400 but that is the best ive been able to do so far . I would really appiticate it.

    I have a Bushnell Elite 3200 tactical 5-15x40 on my AR that I use for coyote huntin and love it, I like to dial turrets and I've never had any issues with this scope returning to zero, im pretty sure that falls into your price range too.

    The only experience I have with drop compensating reticles is the burris which I wasn't very impressed with, the leupold B&C reticle which worked pretty good but I think the reticle is a little thick for precision shooting, I have a Leupold with a varmint hunter reticle that I do really like though, I have it on a rem 700 22-250 and all the marks line up perfect out to 600 yards, the scope I have is a 6.5-20x40 with the 30mm tube and don't remember the cost on the scope but I know it was more than what you want to spend, they might make a scope with a 1 inch tube with the same reticle that would save you some money

    Most of the time I prefer dialing turrets for shooting and hunting but quick references on a hold over reticle are nice for a quick reference if a coyote bust you and runs out to 400 500 or 600 yards before he stops to take a second look

    I have never been able to dial a coyote. Most my shots on them are within 100yards and closing, unless something spokes them and they hang up. With that being said a good duplex, Mil or BDC style scope will work well on a 22-250 since they are pretty flat shooters. Natchez has some Weaver scopes at smoking deals right now. Vortex is another scope worth looking into. A used Luepy should also be considered.

    IMO,
