Help choosing scope for cz

I am looking to buy a scope for my CZ550 american with a real nice wood stock and need some help finding it.

I want a lightweight (20 oz or less?) scope that will be used for Hunting and shooting up to 800m or so, has a mil based reticle, power should be around 2-3x at min and somewhere from 9-15x at max. Windage will be held over. FFP is Desired but not set in stone.

The turrets need to be low profile, if this is not possible i would consider a capped turret with good repeatable clicks. I would really like turrets but they cannot ruin the look of the package. I would like to keep the price under 1k but may spend a little more if needed.

    I did not want to sway any recommendations by listing a couple potential canidates but here are 2 that are real close to what i am looking for. I would rather spend less than more, but understand that cost comes with quality.

    Swarovski Z3 3-10x42 with the brh reticle. 12.7 oz, would fit the look, but i am concerned about durability, and repeatable clicks if i ever remove the turret cap and dial in.



    NF 2.5-1032 NXS COMPACT with mil dot reticle. This may look too "tactical" and the cost is a bit higher than I would like.

    I am in no way set on either of these, just giving you an idea of what type of scope I am looking for.

    Sounds like you are more interested in looks then function. What caliber? Need more info to help you out.

    The rifle is a 30-06. Trying to get a balance of function and form in a hunting rifle.

    That Kahles Helia C is nice. I would have looked right past that one. Still have to do a bit more research as I am sure after a little bit of digging there are a few more similar scopes out there that are comparable.

    Check out the Leupold VX-R line:

    VX

    Reticles are not mil-based, but it meets pretty much everything else you have stated.

    The Zeiss Conquest scopes are available with a mil-dot reticle and would meet your requirements.
