I too have not tried a Weaver "V" but have used Weavers for many years and they performed excellently. I have a fixed 4X on my 30.30 now. Never had one fog up or bust loose the cross hairs. I cant say that about my Charles Daly or Redfield. Bushnell and Simmons, and Tasco are also doing a fine job for me right now.
Here is a very handy and effective device I use to dispense corn with - but it could also be used to dispense any other seed or deer feed.
I had an old feeder that had a failed motor... I made a set of brackets to attach the feeder to the rear of the 4 wheeler - the lower one encircles the feeder and has a forward section with holes drilled in the outer ends of the bracket... these holes align with two 5/16" bolts that drilled into the rack of the 4 wheeler.
The upper bracket is an "L" shaped...
