Default Weaver scopes V24

I am going to purchase a scope for a 220 swift 700 rem vssf. I am wanting a fine cross hair for long shots on ground hogs, crows, coyotes, and praire dogs. Is the Weaver v24 a good scope for the money? would the Bushnell 4200 be a better choice? I am not interested in the Leupolds as they are another $150 - $200.
Price on the V24....$300
price on the 4200...$450

What do you guys think????
need some help.

Thanks,
Mark

I have one of the Weaver V24' s.It' s a really nice scope and well made.Weaver has a lifetime warranty. However when using in the upper powers the clarity is not that great.If I were doing it again I would get a 16 power maximum.If you decide to go with the Weaver check www.natchezss.com
I bought mine there for 259.00 last year. At Midsouth they were running right at 330.00.

Ruger,
What power scope do you use on your varmit rig? I would think the higher magnification of the V24 would be better for crows, and ground hogs at longer distances. But if the V16 has the fine cross hair that might be another alternative. And thanks for the Natchez site, it looks like they will be getting some of my business.

Mark1494, I have the Weaver V24 Classic Variable scope on a Winchester" Coyote" in 223. The V24 is 6x24x42 AO Varmiter in Matte black. So far I' ve only used it at a local range @100yards.It does pull in the target but like mentioned it not as clear on the near maxed out powers.Another thing a scope set that high the least little movement looks like you' re swaying all over. Especially shooting off hand. Unless you are really steady I would go with the V-16.I' ve dealt with Natchez several times and received good service.I usually deal with Midsouth but Natchez beat them on the Weaver scope.I hope I answered what you were asking.If I can help you email me .
