Not a bad pick. If you wouldn't mind the extra expense, Burris has an XTR II in a similar magnification range. It would be a better scope all around. If memory serves, the 2-10X is less money, I would look hard at that option.
I've made hits at 500 yards on 6X, so with 8-10X, you can stretch out on a hog or coyote if needed.
