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.

When I was shopping for a Leupold scope, I had a list of features that I wanted, and it seemed that the only the high magnification variables had all of the things on my list. I wanted a fine Duplex reticle, target knobs, an adjustable objective, a one-inch tube, and multicoating on the external lenses.

Or another option would have been to go with the VX-II 4-12x40 AO, fine duplex, and have Leupold add the target knobs. I had a similar list of desired feutures, so that's the scope I bought, and I just added the Stoney Point target knobs. I find 12x on the top end to be more than enough for this cartridge.
