I like the nikon monarch line of scopes. I run their 6.5-20 's on my pdog guns. For coyote you might need a lower power for a wide field of view. Its hard to find them running at least for me.
I may try a nightforce on my next build. They have some that start at 3.5 power.

Leopold, vortex, the end upper end Bushnell, high end Nikon, zeiss, ect.. There are tons of good scopes it just depends on what you want to get out of it.

I have always agreed with this and have stuck with leopold and nikon but if you stick with a smaller calibers take a look at mueller. They are a Michigan company and produce a nice scope for the money. I have their 4.5-14 apv scope on my 22-250. They get great reviews and a friend of mine has one on a 30.06 and has no issues. (personally I would not put on a high recoil gun) Rimfirecentral is a great forum and have tons of reviews on it. Just my two cents.

Millett is another good option for an affordable scope with great glass and a lot of options. I have one on my 308 and its very consistent out to 600 yards. I believe its an American made product too.

Go with the monarch series if you go Nikon. You really do get what you pay for.

My cousin has a Redfield on his .17. It's a 12x power I think, pretty nice scope and is very easy to find target and works nice in low light.

Gun or Rifle?????????

Also once you figure out what you want for a scope go to Optics Planet, I saved hundreds on each scope I have bought.

Great service and quick delivery.
