Need a good 22-250 scope for long range coyote hunting and for long range target shooting. Any ideas of good scopes.

What's your budget?

I had an old steel tube K10 Weaver that I used to kill a LOT of groundhogs.

I think that scope cost me $110. Now that was quite a few years ago.

I have a Night Force 8-32X56 on that rifle now and that scope cost a bunch of money.

For your purpose, you can find some pretty good scopes from Leupold VXIII or Nikon Monarchs that go from about 4.5-16 power that should work pretty good for you. They won't be real cheap but they are good quality scopes.

Sometimes Midway Shooting Supplis has some pretty good deals as well as Optics Planet.

Looking for something in the 200-300 range. It needs to be good out to like 400 yards

In that price range, I highly recommend the Mueller Eradicator.

I have one:

On my .204Ruger, it is very good for the price.

The blob below the crosshairs in this picture is a woodchuck at 342 yards:
