Gun will be used for Whitetail deer. Most shots from 50 yards to 350 yards. Would like to stay under 450.00 dollars. Scopes I am looking at are

Leupold 2.5-8x36 VX-3
Zeiss 2.5-8x32 Conquest
Vortex 2-7x32 Viper
Bushnell 2.5-10x40 Elite 4200
Weaver 2-10x38 Classic V
 
How good is the Weaver for the Money?

Conquest would be my pick of those listed.

I have  Weaver on a .22, but haven't used their higher-end stuff.

The 2.5x8 Luepy fits like a glove. Light rifle light scope, trim and trim.

Have it down to the Leupold or the Zeiss. Looking at putting Talley Lightweight Scopemount on it, I have there Screwlocks on my 223 700sps tactical and I like them a lot.

I have the Zeiss in Talleys on my X-Bolt.  I'd have to vote for the Zeiss too.

If I could get a Swarovski 3-9x36 American for 600.00 new would it be worth the extra 200.00 over the Leupold or Zeiss?

The VX3 is a perfect fit.  Lightweight and compact.  It's the scope pictured on Kimbers rifle ads.  The Zeiss and Swaro will have a little better optics IMO.

My Kimber 7-08 wore a Leupold 2.5-8 and to me it was just about a perfect fit. I like light trim scopes on light trim rifles. I saw a picture here I believe, of a Remington Mountain Rifle with a Swaro Z6 on board and while it may be a wonderful scope it looked out of place and unbalanced. Just my opinion though.

Those three scopes are excellent choices.  One thing to consider:  I have a conquest on my 7-08 model 7, and there is VERY little clearance for the bolt handle with a low mounted scope and those monster Zeiss oculars.  The VX-3 will mount low and have plenty of bolt clearance.

I have Kimber Montana in 7mm-08 w/Leupold VXIII in Talley lightweights and it looks, fits, and feels and works perfect for the size of the 84M.  I love my 7mm-08!

The Zeiss is a heavy scope.  Nice, but heavy.  I'd be looking to go lighter.

Nikon now makes a 2x8x32 Monarch.  It should be pretty light and compact.  You might want to look at it.

I have the VXIII 2.5-8 on my Model 84.  I tried a Conquest, 3-9X40, but didn't like it nearly as much as the Leupold, so I switched back.

I have a Nikon Monarch 2-8x32 in Talley Lightweights on my 700 in 7mm-08 and for me it is a great combination.

That's not really my definition of light, either.  Especially with the aforementioned vx-3 at 11 and change, or a 4x at 9 and change.  I don't see much point in buying something light and handy like an 84m and putting a beautiful but ungainly zeiss beast on the thing.
