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.

I've got a 4200 6-24-40 on my Marlin 17VS and love it. The Savage 93R17 wears a Mueller 4-16-50. I much prefer the Bushnell 4200 and it still meets your criteria of under $400 through SWFA. You'll love the 4200.
BSA scope

ANyone seen this scope by BSA? It's made just for the .17HMR.
It comes in 4x 12x 40mm and 6x 18x 40mm. I have never used a bsa scope. Anyone have any information?

Wow, thats alot easier, thanks..

I have a Swift Premier 669M 6-18X44

I just ordered a Bushnell Legend 5-15X40 with mildot and AO for my Savage. It should be an improvement over the old Sportsman that is on it right now.
I use a Bushnell Banner 6-18 x50.

NEF sportster bull barrel.
I am using a Bushnell 4-12X40 Banner with Warne rings on my CZ American and couldn't by happier with it's performance. The Warne dovetail rings are excellent by the way for the CZ rifles because they have a reversible clamp on them for regular straight style dovetails on one side and for the tapered dovetails on guns such as the CZ on the other. They also are great looking and are not bulky.
Weaver V-16 with burris zee rings. Anyone out there with the v-24 in mildot? Was wondering if the mildot is nice or is a big wire one. Mabey I'll just get another dual-x V-24 for my next scope
Bushnell Elite 3200 10X40 Mil-Dot settled in Mounting Solutions 1" Tactical Rings.

I love the Mil-Dot reticle, you can't beat it!
How do you like the burris zee rings?
Have a Simmons Whitetail Expedition 4-12x42 on my Savage 93r17 and a Weaver Grand Slam 6-20x40 on my Remington 597-17.
