I am looking for a scope to go on a Rem 700 in 22-250. The rifle will be used mostly for coyotes and target shooting with maybe a praire dog hunt once in awhile. The scopes I have looked at are Nikon Monarch, Bushnell Elite 4200 and a Burris Black Diamond. I haven't looked at the Leupold's yet but they would also be considered. My thoughts so far are the Burris seemed to be much more clear when I looked at them in the store. I also liked the side focus on the Burris. So what do you think of a Burris in 16x for what I have planned for this rifle?

P.S. You guys have a great site here. Tons of info!!!

i think i would use the 4200 4-16x40, of the ones you mentioned, becuase for coyote hunting you want a pretty good low power, i say 4 at the most. the burris black diamond wouldnt be bad either, and you can get a finer cross hair with that for PD hunting.

Defineately go with a variable.  If a coyote manages to sneak up on you relatively close all you are going to see with a 16X is a big blur of hair.  The scopes you mentiopned are good and I think that the Bushnell ELite Cory mentioned is probably a "Best Buy" for the money contender.

The Black Diamond is a 4x-16x I believe. The only reason I was wanting the 16x was for target and the possible praire dog hunt. I guess what I would really like to know of the scopes in this price range of say under $600 what are some opinions on what would be the best that I could get.

700 in 22-250 for target, coyote, p-dog and other misc. varmints....under $600.

 

Your short list is a good one and I can tell you have been reading a lot here from your picks.  A 4-16 is perfect for that application.  I feel a 50mm is beneficial for low light shots using the higher powers.  The Elite 4200 4-16x50 comes with a sun shade, its a/o focuses down to like 10 yards, it has low profile finger adjustable windage and elevation, and rain guard coatings.  Those features are hard to pass up.

 

Others to consider would be:

Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50 Side Focus, Ballistic Mil Dot......$613.95

Burris 4.5-14x42 A/O, Illuminated Ballistic Plex.....$429.95

Leupold Mark 4 PR 4.5-14x40, 30mm, Side Focus, Fine Duplex.....$599.95

Nikon Monarch 5.5-16x44 A/O, Niko-Plex.....$399.95

Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 Side Focus, Z-Plex.....$649.95 (on samplelist.com for $549.95)
