Hi everyone,

My new Winchester Coyote Lite in .22-250 will be home next weekend. My funds are in order so it's time to get the scope ordered. It's down to the wire between the Bushnell Elite 4200 in 6-24x40 with mil-dot reticle for $450 or the Burris Signature Select in 4-16x44 with Ballistic Plex for $445. Big decision. I know the Bushnell is a favorite around here, but for some reason I am really stuck on the Burris. I have researched these scopes and both seem to be of high quality and similar features. This gun will be used primarily for coyotes and praire dogs. Is the Bushnell's mil-dot reticle as popular and as the Burris ballistic plex? Please help me make an informed decision and tell me why one is better than the other. Thank you.

Also, any suggestions for a high quality pair of rings?

I have both a Burris Signature Select 6-24x44 and Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16x50.   Both are amazingly clear and greaty in low light.

As I just posted seperately, my Elite 4200 is not responding well to elevation or windage adjustments.  My Burris was excellent.  My brother just bought the Nikon Monarch 4-16x42 and it was the finest scope we have ever used.  All adjustments were exact and zeroed in exactly as it should have.  The Burris was OK but would not 'walk a box' as well as the Nikon.  Otherwise I have no complaints with it.

I can assure you my next scope purchase will be the Nikon.  SWFA has excellent prices on them and the quality is the best I have experienced.  Depending on the replies to my post I am seriously considering returning the ELite 4200 and replacing it with a Nikon.
