Looking for a little advice in purchasing a scope for my new build to be used for varmit hunting. Something that is a good performer but doesnt break the bank. I will mostly be using it for daylight shooting.

depends on the distance you plan on shooting at along with a definition of "breaking the bank"

Take a hard look at the Leupold VII 6-18X40 one inch tube fine plex with Target Turrets. SWFA carries them at about $450.00. It is an excellent choice for a 223/5.56 Varminter.

Weaver Grand Slam 6x20x40 Adjustable Objective. You won't find a better varmint scope for $335, imho. It compares with a Leupy VX 3, in terms of glass/clarity, etc.

I took the recommendation of the folks at SWFA to get this over a more expensive Leupy, and I've been very happy with it. It's bright, crystal clear, and the very light reticle doens't obscure any small targets. It's got a bona fide "quick focus" dioptor style adjustment in the back.

I've had a couple of Fullfields IIs, and I think the GS is a better scope...a little more expensive, but it's just better all the way around.

The Super Sniper is a great scope, but the fixed magnification won't be anywhere near as versatile as a variable.

I'd get another GS in a minute.

There's a 3x12 GS in the EE that's been there for a while at $200. I don't need another scope, but I've had to fight the urge to buy it several times.
