    Looking for a scope with the characteristics below....so far, it looks like the Leupold VX-6 3x18, Swarovski z5 or z6 (big premium for the z6) and the Zeiss HD5 3x15 fit the bill...looking for others but haven't come across them yet - or possibly missed them. Any other scopes I should check out?

    Don't think I can get the NF reticle I want (NP1 or IHR) in the scope I want, but maybe they have a custom shop like Leupold does...(?)

    Here is what I am looking for in a scope.

    Parallax adjustment
    3x15 or so magnification range
    MOA based turrets and simple reticle
    Prefer SFP
    Don't want anything larger than 50mm, preferably 42 or 44
    Want quality scope and customer service
    Stay under ~$3k

    Virtually every scope manufacturer makes a scope that fits your parameters: Leupold, NightForce, Bushnell, Vortex, Sightron...the list goes on and on.

    Go with the Zeiss or NF.
