Which scope?

I'm going to replace a scope on my 375 Ruger. I've narrowed the choices down
to 4 scopes, 2 weavers and 2 leupolds. .
The 2 leupolds are a vx-3 in 1.75-6 x 32
and a vx-r in 2-7 x 33 with ballistic firedot. The 2 weavers are a Super Slam
Euro in 1.5-6 with illuminated German reticle and their Dangerous Game scope
in a 1-5. Anybody have any input as to which of these would be my best choice.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like I'm going with the 2-7 leupold. I was thinking that the 2-7 was way more versatile than the other scopes, as far as being useful on other rifles, as opposed to the other 3 scopes. I really like the vx-r. I'm a fan of 30mm scopes, as well as an illuminated reticle. When I'm hunting, although my scopes are much higher powered on the top end, I never hunt with the scope set over 6X. Well that is, except for my 264 win mag. I have it set on 9X, but the scope is a 5-20X, and I only use it when I'm hunting open fields for coyote, or southern Iowa during the antlerless rifle season in January. Thanks again for the replies guys. You have validated my initial thoughts.
