   I just recently purchased a Ruger M77 Hawkeye .22-250. My intent is some target shooting and coyote hunting. Having said that I have no idea what kind of scope to put on it. As far as range I have been told a 4x12  would be good for my gun. I am not wanting to spend a lot of money. I would like to keep it in the $400.00 dollar range. Any good suggestions?

Nikon Monarch 3-12x42  $419.95
Vortex Viper 4-12x40  $399.95
Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40  $269.95
 
The monarch and the vortex are side focus and the bushnell is A/O.  The bushnell also has rainguard.  Any of these would do the job.

I just picked up a Monarch in 5x20x44 for $420 shipped.  SWFA will price match.

12x is plenty for dogs.  Rodents and paper can be enhanced with a bit more magnification IMO.

Vortex Viper 6.5x20x44mm mil dot $400, 50mm $500.  If you want to go super deal, the Vortex Crossfire  6x24x50mm mil dot close out price at SWFA $100 . We bought three of these scopes and are very pleased.

I would rather have an illuminated reticle if possible and I think you guys are way high on the power range for coyotes because they move pretty fast.  The 22-250 is a flat shooting cartridge I'd zero at 200 and see what it did at 50, 100 and 300
