I'm not sure why I want a high power scope. I had a 6-18x50 bushnell on my 270 and I really liked being able to go out and shoot at 100 yards and be able to see where I was hitting with out walking to the target every time. I put a Nikon pro staff 4-12x40 on my ar-15 and I like it. As far as shots go I've yet to shoot this gun over 200 yards but that's not saying I won't try if I get the chance some of the places we hunt coyote at we have needed to be a few hundred yards away so I guess that's why I wanted a high power scope
