Default Weaver GS and Viper Vortex

OK, I've narrowed my scope purchase down to the Weaver Grand Slam 3-10 (on sale for $269) and the Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10 (found for $300). So price is pretty similar. Weaver is mil/mil which would be nice. Viper is a 30mm tube. Slight reported difference in eye relief. Any experience with these two scopes? Any other major differences I should be aware of? I'll be using it mostly for plinking and possibly hunting in the future.

I have the Viper HS 2.5-10 and love it. I paid $350, so you got a great deal and should jump on it. It's on the heavy side for a hunting scope IMHO. No experience with the Weaver.
