I know this is a tad more but this is an awesome scope and you truely would love it plus the free jacket is worth about a hundred bucks and is very nice for a light weight jacket. That cartridge screams varmits at distance and the knobs on this scope can be used to dial in adjustment for trajectory rather a short version of a target knob and resetable to zero.

The anti-fogging requirement narrows the field quite a bit.  When you also add the $350 or less parameter, then the only option that fits both criteria is a Bushnell Elite 3200.  You can get a 5-15X40, 5-15X50, or 7-21X40.  Elite 4200 and Sightron Big Sky scopes both have the water repelling feature, but neither fit the budget that you have set.  No scopes are guaranteed not to fog - they can under certain situations.  But they are definitely less likely to than the scopes that do not have the water repellant coating on them.  If you are able to exceed the $350 budget, I would definitely upgrading to the Elite 4200 or the Sightron Big Sky.  Both are great scopes that are well worth the investment.  I have an Elite 4200 6-24X40 with a dot recticle mounted on a 223.  I have been very satisfied with it so far.  If you will tell everyone what the intended application for this rifle is, then they can help recommend an appropriate recticle also.

ok, so does your friend use a scope like a 2.5x10 or 3x9?? what im getting at is that i hunt coyotes myself, and nothing is worse than a coyote sneaking up on you and your scope has to much power to see anything but hair, if you have a friend or two who use lower powered scopes i dont see any reason why not to go with a 4x14 or 4x16, you can take the longer shots if one hangs up out there at 300-400yds while your buddies take the dogs inside that range. i have a 4200 elite, and while the rain guard does work pretty good against fogging its not perfect. for coyotes i myself use a 3x9x40 on my 22-250, my brother inlaw and father inlaw use a 6.5x24 and a 4x16 but they usually are doing the calling, i have shot coyotes at 400yds with 3x9 and while its tougher its not impossible. the 4200 is a nice scope and i highly recommend it to you. if you tend to do a lot of early moring and early evening hunting the 4200 is ok, but there are certainly a lot of other scopes that are better in lower light.
