May be the wrong thread here, but I have a newly purchased Savage Model 10 .223 in the Precision Carbine. Its now my go to Coyote gun. I'm looking to put the very best scope under $1000 on it. Will be shooting close and far, day and night. I've always been a big target DOT reticle fan for easy on target running shots, but a lot of manufacturer's don't have that option available. Not sure if theirs better. Illumination? 56mm objective, 4-16, 4-24 power? Zeiss, Meopta, Leupold, Burris, Minox, Nikon, Bushnell, etc.....? I'm so lost. Been at this for days. I have a chance at buying a Zeiss 3-12x56 MC is the first focal plane and regular crosshairs, but not sure if this is a good choice for Coyotes. Its new and willing to sell for $625. Believe there around $1000 elsewhere. Not sure. Just need some real advice from coyote hunters on what they like, or wish they had, scope, reticle, etc... Thanks for the advice.

Nikon m223, this scope is the cats *** for 223. Bullet drop turrets that are spot on great low light abilities,and under $500. Cant say enough good things about the scope other than I really hope they expand the line to more calibers.
