Just bought a Savage Model 40 .22 Hornet and I'm looking for a decent scope to pair it with, primarily for use as a small game/varmint rig. Anyone tried the Hawke Varmint II scopes? I was looking at the Varmint II 4-16x44 w/ AO and Mil-Dot online and considering it but I've never used their stuff so I'd like to hear from those who have. I'm also open to any other suggestion for a decent scope between $100-$200. Thanks,

Kenny, I ordered the Hawke 6-20x from ebay. I plan on putting it on the 6.5 Grendel. No shipping cost.

Please know that ebay vendors frequently buy old merchandise and liquidated product models and factory seconds that are no longer in production. Hopefully, the vendor you purchased from is an authorized Hawke dealer like RedHunterLLC is. All of RedHunterLLC's merchandise is first quality, recent production inventory. We do have occasional sales on discontinued merchandise and that is made perfectly clear when we offer those products at a reduced price.

Kenny, do you have 6.5 Grendel ammunition you'd be willing to sell? I should have mine put together in the next few weeks.
