I have a Ruger in 17hmr and am trying to decide on scope.  Weaver GrandSlam in 6-20x40 with Fine Crosshair dot or Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14x40 with Nikoplex.  I have a buddy who is selling these two scopes and I cannot decide.  The Nikon optically seems much better.

One thing to consider is the FOV.  I have 4.5-14 scopes on both of my 17 HMR's.  One is a Burris FFII (42mm) and the other is a Nikon Buckmaster (40mm).

I have a Ruger K77/17 VMBBZ with a Buckmaster 6x18 BDC SF. It has really been a good scope for this gun. I shoot Hornady Vmax it really likes them and so far I've never had to rezero the gun. The clarity is REALLY GREAT..............

The Grandslam should be the better scope. But I really prefer the Weaver V-Series for rimfires.

how will you be using the rifle?  hunting small game, varmint, target?  Do you know how old the Buckmaster is?  I have a Weaver GS and an mid 90's Buckmaster and the GS is better, not close really.
 
I have a 4-12X40 AO Redfield Golden 5 Star on my Savage 9317 and really like it!  I use it for small game..... too much fun on tree rats!  and we shoot little metal figures with it too.  Haven't gone above the 9x I don't think.

medic - at what ranges/distances are you using that combo?  I shot mine the other day and I was just a smidge high at 50 meters and just a smidge low at 100 meters!  Didn't get a chance to see what it would be at 150 & 200.
