    In my profile picture I am holding a dpms lr308 with an m-308 scope. I love it! It has the fast action turrets marked to 800yds, which I like! I haven’t shot that far but with atomic brand 168gr hpbt loads it was on to the 300yd mark! I know in a prior thread the bdc reticle didn’t get much praise but for your hunting purposes it sounds like a good match.

    Buy a gen 2or3 nvs and hunt on! No ir illuminator therefore not illegal! Coyotes and coon are the only critters to be shot at night. I also agree with the DNR officer that would stop anyone at night hunting. Play fair and it shouldnt matter. My 2 cents!

    Group hunting is alot of fun and I hope you get the chance to go double 10! Another twist to coyote hunting is running them with dogs, what a blast! The group I went with doesnt usually let the dogs catch the coyote, they like the sport of trying to get in front and gun the dog down! Varmint bullets are the only bullets allowed, no city kids running around with ars and the cheapest full metals they can buy. Good ammunition thats not prone to richocet is a must regardless how you hunt them.

    I had that exact scope on my DPMS LR-308 but sold it in favor of the M-308. Both are great scopes! The only reason I choose to sell was I wanted the rapid action turrets of the M-308. In my opinion Nikon is making the best scopes in the $100-500 dollar range. My girlfriend must have known this and bought me a p-223 3-9bdc for x-mas! This scope went on my DPMS 3g1 and I love it! Go with Nikon but view all there models and look through them all, you”ll be very happy!

    I haven’t actually looked at a Wilson till you mentioned it! It looks like a fine tool, does the case holding aid in a clean cut?
