Scope for MN Coyote

7 posts in this topic

I'm new to coyote hunting, and curious what size scope is best suited for typical MN conditions. I'm planning on getting a savage .223 that will be used primarily for local stuff. I doubt I will go west into bigger areas. I was thinking a 3x9x40. Is that enough magnification?

get the burris fullfield II combo from cabelas, you get a good scope and a good set of binocs too. it has the baslistic plex in the scope which is nice to have too.....3-9x40 is the scope power

If you don't reload, I suggest the 55gr. Hornady Vmax Varmint Factory loads. Very accurate, very consistent too......

The "which scope?" topic will drive you crazy. Shopping for deals on equipment is my off-season hobbie. I spent last winter hunting for a scope for my new .204 Encore. I choose the Leopold 3.5-10. It was a bit pricey.

For a .223, any good 3-9x40 will do a good job. Burris, Nikon, ect. Find the model that you like. Go to Gander, Cabels's, or SMW and look at a lot of different models. Don't fall for the more you pay - the better the scope. It is true but you can over buy from what you need. Look for deals. If you can wait, the holiday sales will be great this year due to the ecomony.

Take a look at Natchez shooting supplies. Incredible deals on top brand scopes. I shoot a .22-250 with a 4x16 Nikon Monarch.
