Riflescopes with Horus reticules ?

Folks,

I'm thinking of having a Steyr SSG69 re-barelled in 284 and am considering a new long range scope. I've been watching the u-tube vids on the Horus reticule with interest so would like to get one.

I know that Nighforce offer the F1 with a horus but i've suffered from their terrible aftersales service before and have vowed to never buy another.

Can anyone suggest other brands which offer the horus reticle in a variable scope, ideally reaching 15x mag or greater?

Thanks

    The list left off Horus and Hensholt.
    None are ideal for use at very long range with the Horus reticle concept. None have an eyepiece which can move vertically without moving the reticle relative to the target. Target knobs with a Horus reticle are mostly useless.

    Maybe this is a scam. I don't know:
