I have a 243 that I want to use for coyote hunting. My budget is 500$ and want to take low light conditions into consideration.


Thanks

I'd recommend checking out SWFA's much vaunted Sample List. I like my Leupold VX-R 3-9x for my "truck gun".

At what range are you shooting coyotes? I love 243, it has some legs, it would help to know ranges to better recommend an optic.

I like low light capabilities too, but I also shoot yotes in daylight, and further away.

That Zeiss 3-9x42 Terra is a great deal. 9x Should be enough magnification. Zeiss's clear glass with a 42mm objective should capture a fair bit of light as well.
