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 just put a swift premiere on my new 917 following some reccomendations I got here. I dont know if its the best scope out there, but so far as optics in general are concerned, for the money its pretty impressive. I kinda wish the reticule was finer though.
G'day from New Zealand
I bought a Marlin 917v second hand complete with a Tasco 3-12 (for the price of a new Marlin 917v). The bolt runs smoother than the new ones I looked at in the shop (which originally put me off buying one). Absolutley pleased with the groupings. This gun replaced my Mosberg 22mag.
Only problem with scope is its not so clear up the high end. I saw no benefit from using 12 power over 9 power. Looking at upgrading. Probably fullfield 4.5-14. I shoot with a bipod, mostly of the bonnet or back of a flat deck spotlighting rabbits and hares.
