2) Has side focus for parallax
3) Has 40mm to 44mm objective (might step up to 50mm)
4) Has MOA reticle
5) Has 1 inch tube
This rifle is to be a legitimate mountain rifle so small & lightweight become big factors. Any idea who produces a scope with this list of "must haves"?
I use the Leupold VX3 4.5-14x40 CDS, with Alumina caps.
No moa reticle
No side focus on 1" tube, has on 30mm.
Nice compact very light scope.
Very hard to go past for a 6-8lb rig.
The VX6 would be worth a look as well.
