I have a few questions. If you had to choose between a Weaver Classic V-Series 6-24x42 Ballistic X or a Vortex Viper HS 6-24x50 Dead-Hold BDC, which scope would you go with? The scope will be going on a custom built .225 Winchester 700 Remington. I will mostly be doing woodchuck hunting and target shooting. I can get the Weaver sooner, but the Vortex I would have to put on layaway. Which one is the better scope? Also open to other suggestions, but I want a 6-24 scope. And the Vortex will cost me $599 when the total layaway is done. So that's about my limit. Thanks

Not those two, but I do have a Vortex Viper 2-7X36 that has tracked reliably, held its zero and has decent glass.

I would definitely go with the Viper.  Also the Sightron S3 is a good possible.
You could save up and keep an eye on Samplelist for used or demo one.

or  you can trade something in toward it :
