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...
On a gun like that you are going to want more than a 3-9X40. Id look at a Leupold VX-II 6-18x40AO. I believe they are priced at $400. Super clear and will give you the versatality your looking for in a varmint set up.
