Pretty much all of them from Bushnell to USO. I have both SFP & FFP scopes. For an ELR rifle I see little to zero advantages of FFP. For a guy shooting a tactical match or in a hunting position where quicker shots & varying distances are the norm (think hold overs here) they are almost irreplacable.
For a guy shooting long range or ELR, more often than not your intended critter has no idea you're even there. You have time to go prone, get distance to the target, measure wind, pull your dope, set your turrets & wait for your shot. Not exactly what you would call expedient.
You will have plenty of time to ensure your scope is cranked to the correct power.
On the other hand, you never have to worry about what power the scope is set to. If you use hold overs as I did this year (more for curiosity than anything else), FFP can be a pretty important factor. You are engineering out the human factor at that point, it's impossible to be on the wrong power.
Vortex offers FFP (MOA & MIL)
Bushnell offers the HDMR's (probably the best bang for your buck in FFP)
Leupy offers the ER/T line (I used the MK4 M5-A w/TMR this hunting season)
NightForce offers the F1 (discontinued)
NightForce Offers the Beast (very spendy)
US Optics (I just bought one of these in IPHY).
The selection grows by the month is seems. It comes down to a question of application. Which fits your needs best?
Like I said, I use both: from Luepy to NightForce to USO. I feel they all have their place.
