Well, after much research, I have narrowed down my next coyote/predator scope to the VX-R 3-9x50 or the Trijicon 2.5-10.
 
The scope is going on a RockRiver predator pursuit and most of my hunting occurs at night.
 
My only holdup now is to determine which reticle would be best in the Leupold for coyote hunting.  So, any reccomendatios will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think there is going to be any huge difference between any of them frankly since you have the lit dot for low light
I would go with whatever you can find the best deal on

I have tested the #4 and Ballistic plex

I think they are fantastic scopes for hunting
along the lines of the Trijicon Accupoint in terms of glass quality and low light, well done lit reticles that do not over power the shooters eye by being too big or too bright.

With the ballistic plex reticle if you plan to use it for holdovers just carefully check with a ballistics calculator your load at varying zero ranges to see if you can make the holdover points work well for you.  I could not with a 25-06 running a 100g at 3200fps and zero ranges from 2-300 yards for example.

from the center crosshairs down to the circle intersection is 2.19
next dot is 4.8
then 7.82

(all in MOA)
