    I just installed a Nikon 3-9x40 w/BDC reticle on my son's .22-250, crystal clear viewing and fine crosshairs. Can come in higher power if needed.
    The emphasis is on accuracy, not power!

    It depends a whole lot on the terrain and your hunting techniques. For both chance shots and calling in open terrain I use an older 6x18 Redfield on a 22-250. But for calling in close river bottoms I use a 1.5x5 on a 223. Best compromise for all settings is probably something on the order of a 3x9, but if the same rifle is also going to be used for far-shooting on small critters, I'd want more power at the top end.

    Default I used...

    I put a yard-sale 6-24 Tasco on my .22-250 Ackley. It works well. Especially for $10 with a set of Redfield rings....

    I have a leupold 6.5-20 x50 AO on mine and I love it.

    I have a 4-14 with a B&C redicle on my 22-250, it has a 1-8 twist and shooting 80 gr. Sierras, it is scarry how far out it can hit. J.

    Burris FF-II 4.5-14x42 with the b-plex does the trick for my 22-250AI.

    I agree that it will depend on the terrain which will dictate on how far you want to shoot. On my wife's seal rifle, a Win. Mod 70 .223 USM, I put a 1x4 power Burris Euro Diamond 30mm scope.

    My Kimber .22-250 has a 6-24 Sightron S2. Worked great for prairie dogs, and I betcha it'd do just fine for coyotes at a distance. Up close, it might be too much power, though.

    Default thanks for all the info..

    i really appreciate your two cents on the matter, it will give me a leg up when the salesman is trying to get me to buy some overpriced scope that wont even work the way i want it to when i get it out in the field.
