Tactical Scope With Best Glass For Under $2000?

I used to have a Swarovski 4x12x50 ($1000) scope. I sold it when I bought my Nightforce NXS and was dissapointed with the glass in the Nightforce. For low light hunting, the Swarovski was the better, brighter scope. I wish I could afford a Zeiss Hensoldt but they are $3500. I want a scope with magnification in the 5-20x50 - 6-24x56 range with nice European glass. MOA or MIL knobs. Any suggestions?

    Is there a Swarovski with regular MOA or MIL knobs instead of their 100, 200, 300... Yard system? The deer/steel I shoot at are not always in 100 yard increments.

    I really like my ERT Leupolds in 6.5-20 TMR reticle and M5 dials 1/10 MIL Front Focal, they retail just under 2k and provide everything you need in a tactical scope.

    I used to shoot MOA dials and now wonder why I did not make the switch to the MIL/MIL world sooner......

    I have a Zeiss 6.5-20x50 on my 7mmSTW with the tactical turrets that are 1/4" click adjustments. It's only a Conquest, but they are excellent scopes with great glass for the money. Can be had for about $800.
