I'm thinking about puting a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-10 short action compact on my sporter 22-250 "goto" coyote rifle. I like the idea of a shorter, lighter scope to pair with the sporter weight. Are there any disadvantages to the short action compact scopes...especially on this type of rifle. Below is a link to the scope. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

I would get the 4200 3-9x instead.  It is 1 inch longer, but it is lighter and will be a very nice upgrade in glass.  http://www.swfa.com/pc-7280-185-bushnell-3-9x40-elite-4200-rifle-scope.aspx

I have two of them one on a 45-70 and another on a .357 lever gun.  They are very nice scopes.

I have a Burris Short Mag that I don't really care for...I feel it doesn't let in enough light.  I plan on selling it and sticking with full sized scopes (no matter how silly they look on my compact Ruger M77).

..........................I had a 3x9 4200 mounted on my M77 Frontier compact for quite awhile. The scope size didn`t overpower the rifle and that combo looked quite good.
 
There is no real dis-advantage with a short mag scope as long as you like the glass or the optical quality.

I appreciate the comments. It's interesting, I'm puting this scope on a ruger M77. I like the way it looks on the compact sporter weight. Like you guys have each stated...the compact scopes don't seem to overpower the rifle. Hopefully others will chime in.

I personally like the Nikon Monarch 2-8x32. By the way I have two M77 compacts, one in .243 & one in .308, you'll love it!
