scope with turret options

looking for opinions and options for a semi long range scope with a turret or an aftermarket turret option that wont break the bank. range of use will be 100-1000 yds rifle caliber will be a 264 win mag
options im looking for are max power of 15-20+
possibility of a ballistic reticle as well as turret option
quality and dependable warranty
max obj of 50 mm, i think 56 would be a little too big
trying to keep it semi light, nothing too superheavy

break the bank means diffrent price/quality ranges for diffrent people.

doesnt break the bank to Donald Trump is not the same as it is for me.

Look at the Vortex viper series of scopes. Plenty of people are making custom turrets for them. Reticle is something you have to choose up front. Prices are WAY lower than leupolds.

If you can swing it a PST would fit the bill pretty well. If you hurry you can get $75 off at optics planet on one right now. That make a pretty good deal. They will just take a while to ship.

Re: scope with turret options

i was really looking into a vortex viper hs lr in 4-16 or 6-24 but noticed their click value is 1/2 moa, and not 1/3 or 1/4, what are the advantages/disadvantages of this system

I think the HS is the only series to have the 1/2MOA increment. I think the HS is for High Speed ? The regular viper scopes have 1/4MOA, certainly my Viper 4-16PST FFP is set up that way and can also come 1/10th mil.
