What price range are you looking for and what kind of reticle do you prefer?
 
If I was going to use a 22-250 for varmints at 400 yards I would want them to appear no further than 25-30 yards....so at least a 12x max magnification, on up to 20x.
 
Think about the max price you want to pay and what kind of reticle would work for you.  Are you gonna be comfortable dialing in the proper range for those 400 yard shots or would you rather use a ballistic reticle with a circle or hash to aim at extended distances?
 
You could do good for cheap I think with Weaver Grand Slam, Burris Fullfield 2, Nikon Buckmaster & Coyote Special 4.5-14x scopes with ballistic reticles.  $299 on up
 
Also this Vortex Viper that is a little more than those but has a $50 rebate http://swfa.com/Vortex-65-20x44-Viper-30mm-Rifle-Scope-P11231.aspx
 
From doing a crap load of reading up on scopes the past year or so and talking to many knowledgable people the only Leupold scopes worth the asking price on a regular basis are VX-3's.
 
Give the experts here some more info about your likes and dislikes (since its you that has to use the scope and hopefully cherish it for a long time) and they will help you out with some great options.

price range: unknown - want to buy a scope that will allow me to utilize my gun to its ultimate performance.

reticle:  don't know, need suggestion - i have used duplex and wide duplex.  i am guessing the ballastic. but am open to hearing about dial in for the yardage, if someone would be so kind as to share the pros and cons of such and maybe a comparison to a ballastic.

initially i will be going to the range that has a 100' target so that i can get my groupings tight, then advance onto longer and longer ranges.  so need a scope that will allow me to do this.

greatly appreciate the sharing of the experienced knowledge, so that i can make a wise choice.

VX3 8.5-25 x 50mm Long Range has worked well on my 22-250 vs.  That combo has earned a few brass plates at my club's 300yd factory class benchrest matches.
 
Compared to other similarly priced scopes I own or owned I prefer those long range VXIII or VX3's for varmint type guns.

I'm partial to Leupold too, and have had success with their VX-III 4.5-14X40 LR on my 22-250. My 6mm wears the similar 4.5-14X40.
