Scope for a 22-250 Varmit

I picked up a Winchester Model 70 Coyote Stainless 22-250 yesterday and have no clue about scopes. All I've ever had is Shotguns, pistols, and 22's. No serious rifles. 10000x2222 doesnt mean anything to me. Anyway, the gun is a bull barrell, heavy stock gun. I need a scope for it.

I plan to shoot paper, and maybe some varmits or a prarie dog hunt if I'm lucky.

I have a $300 gift certificate that I can redeem for Cabelas(Catalog, store, or website) or Bass Pro(Catalog Only). I know the pice range in optics is crazy. I used a buddies Zeiss this year on a 300 Ultra Mag, and was super impressed with the clarity and such(not being a rifle guy), but I know he dropped a grand on it. I'd like to stick around the $200 - $400 mark IF i will be able to get something decent for that. If not, make me a suggestion for what I need to spend on what. Go easy, boat seasons coming...

Any suggestions would be appreciated..

You might be in luck. Zeiss has a new line of scopes out. It's their Conquest line. The 3-9X40 (adjustable magnification from 3X to 9X and a 40mm objective) has a price tag of $399.99

Other scopes I reccomend in your price range for such a rifle are:
Leupold Rifleman 4-12X40 - $250 (american made, lifetime guarantee)
Nikon Monarch 3-9X40 - $300 (lifetime guarantee)
Leupold Vari X-II 4-12X40 AO (AO= Adjustable Objectove) - $400

Just remember, resale value on a good scope with a lifetime guarantee like a Zeiss, Leupold or Nikon will help you if you ever decide to upgrade.
