    straight 4x or 6x weavers would have been quite popular then

    Variable powered scopes had become very popular by the late 1970's. Here are some that were shown in the 1978 Gun Digest. I will not list all, just the ones I consider best from my experience in hunting at similar ranges to what you mentioned. Burris Fullfield 2X-7X and 3X-9X, Leupold Vari-X II 3X-9X and 2X-7X, Redfield Widefield LP 2X-7X and 3X-9X, Weaver V7 2 1/2X-7X and V9 3X-9X, Several models of the Lyman All American series in fixed powers.
