I have been planning to build a varmint gun and scope it with a Weaver Grand Slam 5-20x50 Varmint EBX for about 2 years. Finally, I am ready to buy, but to my dismay this scope has been discontinued. Not only that, but I missed them closing out for like 360. I have searched high and low, and the only alternative that floats my boat seems to be the Leupold VX3i 6.5-20 varmint hunter. I still prefer the simplicity of the Weaver. Burris may be a third option. I have no problem shopping used scopes. Budget is 300 to 500 preferably, but I could go up to 1,000 if it was just what I wanted. It will go on a savage 12fv .223, or a savage 12 LRPV left port if I land a job I have an interview for next week. This will be my first BDC type scope. I have always just used a duplex, fine xhair, or my favorite, the weaver varminter reticle. This gun will be shot from a caldwell stable table at ground squirrel and prairie dogs, and it will do nothing else. If you might want to part with a weaver grand slam, send me a PM. I have a VX3 1.5-5x20 for trade or straight cash.
