Hi folks, this is my first post here, glad to "meet" you all. I just bought a Cooper 22-250 for PD's this summer. I have an IOR 4x14 that I am considering using, but am also considering going to IOR's 6x24. I have very little experience shooting out beyond 400 yds or so, and would appreciate any thoughts on these mag ranges at 22-250 range.

CO, Welcome to the board....
On my 22-250 I have a fixed 12 Leupold and that works for me. My higher power scopes are on the farther reaching rifles.

Good Shooting,

I have a 12X42 Nightforce on a couple of my varmint rigs. When shooting out to 500yds I keep the magnification down to 12x. Clarity is far more important than power at this range.
Too much magnification can be a big disadvantage when locating small varmints through the scope or when dealing with mirage.
Either scope that you mentioned should work fine for shooting PD's. The 6x24 might be better for precise shooting at the range.IMO

Good hunting - VH

I have some 12x leupold on varmint hand guns and like them. For my rifles I have a B&L 6x24 and Nighrforce 8x32 I like the variable power on the rifles. The IOR 6x24 would make a nice complement to your Cooper

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
