What scope do you have on your .17s?

I am trying to decide on a scope for my Ruger 77/17 VM/BBZ, I would like to keep it under $400. I have thought about the Weaver V-24 not sure I like the reticle, the V-16 is nice. I have also looked at the Leupold VX II 6-18x40. I plan on shooting paper and small fuzzy animals. Any thoughts would be great.

Gee....my very first post on this site. Just started yesterday after purchasing my Marlin 917V equiped with the BSA Sweet 17 in the 3x12x40mm. I shot around 75 rounds yesterday afternoon and was totally surprised in its accuracy. Even with a crosswind gusting 20mph I was able to get a 5 shot group at 100 yds under 3/4 inch. I'm told that it just gets better with age. Just like wine and women! I'm hooked for good on these little "pellets on fire".
