I have a 22-250 w a mauser action and i want to make an upgrade to my gun with a new scope. I have a budget of $600.00 i would like to stay with in. I like the new Mark AR 6-20x40 leupold and the nikon coyote special. I want to get a good scope that will last, the leupold has a good warranty program which got my attention, but i see alot of ppl like the Nikon scopes.  Please share any ideas or thoughts and/or recommendations.
 
thanks,
 
kurt

What do you use your gun for mainly?  What shot distances? Light conditions?

about the max i can safely shoot on my farm would be 450-500 yds .. mostly shooting ground hogs in the 250-350 yd range. I recently got into coyote hunting as well, and have yet to shoot at one. I have a lite to mount on the scope for night hunting. Ideally I would like to own a zeiss but i do have a budget i want to stay with in. I would like a good scope that will zero out. i have a bushnell Banner series 6-20x40 and it will not zero out correctly anymore... paid $130 at the time. but want a better scope now.

Minox has been compared to teh Zeiss Conquest, glass wise and they have a good following.  Would be a good scope.
 
The new Leopold VXR's are about the best they've put out in a while IMO as far as getting your moneys worth, Either of these would be nice.

have heard good things about This Burris scopes as well, the large mag range may come in handy if you get a sneaky yote that gets to close and one that hangs our a ways and wont come on in

Vortex has a lifetime warranty that rivials the best in the industry if you ever have a problem,  doesn't matter if your the umpteenth owner.  The Viper series have always impressed me.  I have had the Viper, and now have a Viper PST

Do you have any experience dialing in shots or do you mainly use holdovers to shoot beyond your "zero"?

thanks for the info, my buddy is an ex marine sniper and i am slowly learning to dial in my shots... currently i use a rangefinder and kentucky windage. But ammo isnt cheap and i hate to miss as we all do.
 
thanks for the help this site has def proved to be very helpful
 
I saw the vortex scopes... but know very little on them.I will check into them more.

I have nothing but good things to say about them. 
If your getting into dialing your shots more you want a scope with turrets that are made to be used for that.  One of the Leupolds above has the CDS system already, which will be easy to use. 
 
Another great scope is this one, you get your choice in reticle, mil dot or mil quad

I have used this scope more in the last couple years than any of my other scopes.  Its universal.  I use it hunting, target shooting, and it never fails me.  It has plenty of elevation in it built in so you won't have to worry about running out if you ever get to stretch yourself farther.  They also hold their value up there with the best.
