    thumbs up to it and their Grand Slam 6.5-20 version. I consider both to be best buys. Excellent performance for money spent. Equivalent to Leupold VX3 but less costly (by about $150!)

    I have no experience with that particular model, however, I've owned numerous Weavers and been very pleased with them.

    My LR rifle sports a Weaver 4.5x14x44 Tactical with a first plane mildot. I adore this scope. I ran it through a series of grueling field tests and stayed in touch with Weaver techs as I went along. The scope took it all in stride.

    It's not perfect but it's still on my rifle.

    Good luck to you.

    Never that one but I have had tons of the V16's. They should be priced three times what they are.

    Heck, I use one on my LG five years ago, using a 30 Baer cub case. It never lost impact, it took some abuse. Clear and bright, can't say enough. I also have one of the BR 24's one of the best scopes I ever owned for target shooting.

    Repectfully, Vern
