I'm looking to add a scope to the top of my new AR15 platform .223 that I'm building for the purpose of hunting coyotes on my hunt lease.

I do have spots on my lease where I can reach out 600yds if I had to, but my comfort zone is more in the < 200 yds shot.

Would love some feedback on what y'all think might be the better option!

I had a Burris. I would rather have a Leupold.

Thanks @Lockjaw !

I ended up buying the Leupold VX-Freedom 3-9x40 1In Matte Tri-MOA for $218 from Amazon.  I'm pumped.  Truth be told I'm a Leupold guy at heart (wanted one when I got my first rifle as a kid and couldn't afford it).  Fast-forward 20 years, and the first scope I bought with my own $ was a Leupold Rifleman 3-9x40 (strapped to my Winchester Model 70 30-06 right now).  I was just trying to be open to other options.  But, I asked on this forum and 1 other and both responses I got said go Leupold.  So, I went with what I know, and bought the Leupold.

I hope it works out for you.

It sounds like you really wanted a Leupold anyway.  I think there are better options out there for ARs, but you got a good deal and it is a solid choice.
