I'd take that over the Leupold every time.  A fine weapon like a 20" Rock River deserves better than Leupold!

As asked previously, at what are you shooting, and how far away will it be?  And what is your budget?  And what do you want?

Budget is $400.

What is your max range?


A good 1-4 would do the trick, or you might want a little more precision and get a 3-9 or so (my guess is that these are shots taken from supported positions, yes?)

Bushnell 4200 3-9X
Vortex 2-7X, 3.5-10X, or 3-9X
Millett DMS 1-4X
Conquest 1.8-5.5X


Let us know what you get.

id like to reach out and touch a coyote, they seem to hang up for me at 200 yards. so i guess a 300 yard range would be nice. 
and yes, i use shooting sticks while sitting. 
thanks rancid
