So I'm wanting to up grade my scope from a 3-9x50 Burris full field (that I had laying around after I sold my AR so I put it on the creedmoor) to something with a little more power. Mostly coyote hunting with my rifle but I do shoot mid to long range targets from time to time. Here are the 2 scope I'm looking at right now.

Nikon PROSTAFF P3 Predator Hunter Rifle Scope - 4-12x40mm BDC Predator Reticle Black Matte. They r on sale at Natchez. I like the bdc and the 12power of this scope but worried if I will be happy with it when I do shot longer shots with it.

The other scope it the Bushnell nitro 2.5-10x44 ffp. I have a 3-18×50 ffp bushnell forge already on a nother rifle and really like it.

What do u all think I would like to stay in this price range. Thanks for any and all input.

Are you wanting to dial or hold over for longer shots? If you want to holdover I’d go the Bushnell because it’s FFP and your holdovers will be the same at all powers.
