Best FFP scope for under $2k

I'm looking for a new scope. I'd like to get an FFP for under $2k. I was out on Optics Planet and the only ones I seemed to find for the Leupold Mark 4's. Nothing against Leupold, but they weren't top on my list when I wanted to spend that much.

I believe the Vortex HD's come in at exactly $2k but hoping to spend a bit less.

Any ideas?

Paul

    These are pretty good. Magnification rings are too tight but you can live with it.

    Check out SWFA Super Sniper. There's a new soon to be released 3 to 15 power $800

    I have a couple of six SuperSnipers and they are top notch.

    Its a mil reticle and mil turret. Way better than mil ret. and moa knobs. . .Which is what I have.

    SWFA Super Snipers are a great value.
    Vortex Viper PST are also very good. The Razor line
    is more expensive but very good too.
    Nightforce makes a good scope.

    Lots to choose from in the $2k range!
