what scope do i use?

i just bought a fnh trs xp 223 1 in 12 twist and im looking for the best bang for my buck in a scope and by best im looking for something long range clear little glare durable and would prefer the ability for sun shade. i was looking at a nightforce that had a 25 power zoom for 1800 but i was wondering if theres something that will work just as good for cheaper. i would like to hear your input im mainly going to be chucking and maybe coyotes with the gun thanks

I believe your TSR XP should be a 1 in 9" twist.

The Nightforce Benchrest series is cheaper, price wise, than their other series without sacrificing quality.

Look at some top end Leupolds which should be a little cheaper then 1800...

or you could just go to cabelas.com or in store and get a bushnell 4200 3-9 for 200...find a 20 of discount and they start to look really appealing.
