[peer pressure] Go with a Pentax.......we did [/peer pressure]

Do your own thing man.  Pentax are great scopes but so are many others.  Leupold is the brand all others are judged by for a reason.

Super high power are nice scopes for bench and prairie dogs but give me a 3-9 or 4.5-14 for coyotes or as you put it "anything that moves".  Here's a few other top scopes that would really compliment that fine rifle.

Bushnell Elite 4200 4-16x50 A/O, Matte, Plex.....$518.99 (comes with coupon for FREE $99.95 gear bag)
Burris Signature Select 4-16x44 A/O, Matte, Ballistic Plex.....$424.95
IOR Valdada 4-16x50 Side Focus, Matte, Illuminated MP8.....$899.95
Leupold Mark 4 LR/T 4.5-14x50 Side Focus, Illuminated Mil Dot, Matte, M1 Target Knobs.....$929.95
Nikon Tactical 4-16x50 Side Focus, Mil Dot, Matte, Heavy Duty Target Knobs.....$999.99

sorry, i missed the coyote thing, so therefor, a 6x on the low end is too much for coyote. a 4x should be your max for low end. so anyhting in chris's list would be perfect. as for reticle, i think i would get the B-plex.

The Ballistic Plex is super easy and super fast.  You do not have to make any elevation adjustments to your scope in the field.

The mil dot is designed to tell you how far your target is then you adjust your elevation knob.  A mil dot can be used for hold over put requires calculations and experience.

I love the 4200's.

I have a Colt CR6724 also, I put a 4-16x50 4200 Elite with a 1-pc mount on it.  This scope is noticable brighter than the 4200 6-24x40 I have on a simular rifle.

For a .223, unless your shotting praire dogs, I'd go for the 4-16.  Especially for low light, its a awesome scope.

I have a 4.5-14X Burris Ballistic Plex reticle on my 9 twist 26" Hart-barrelled ISSI AR .223 AI, and it's excellent. Once u start applying ballistic reticle technology in the field, u will find out that u can hit coyotes farther than u can kill them quickly (not a good thing actually). I have mine zeroed to around 600 yds. or so to the lower post, and then run clicks for anything farther (inanimate objects or pr. dogs, that is). Ballistic Plex is really as much as u need for that cartridge.
