    Help me find an optic. Criteria inside

    Iíve been shooting a good bit of precision rifle matches lately, and I have some scopes that get the job done but arenít quite checking all the boxes

    Iíd rather have a slightly lower crystal clear magnification (18-20x) versus a hazy 24-25x

    Trijiconís Accupoint 5-20 mildot pisses me off because itís got MOA turrets and a MIL reticle

    I want:

    Exposed (not capped) turrets with a zero stop function
    Side parallax
    Objective size and tube size doesnít matter but 30mm tube and 50mm obj is sort of the middle ground
    FFP preferred but not required
    MIL/MIL or MOA/MOA, just needs to MATCH.
    A reticle that offers precision capability...not too thick or cluttered. The NF SHV MOAR reticle in their 5-20 optic ($1195) is about perfect. The Leupold VX3i-LRP 6.5-20 TMOA reticle ($900) is great but only available in SFP.

    Iíd like to stick to about $1000 but Iíd kick that up a tad if it meant I got the whole list (like the SHV 5-20)


    The Vortex PST 2 5-25 doesnít seem worth the upgrade. The GLx Primary Arms optic offers what Iím looking for but I have a hard time believing it would offer the same glass etc as a NF or Leupold etc. I say that however but the SLx 3-18 Apollo 224 Valkyrie model I got on sale just to test looks better than my Gen 1 PST 6-24, and the turrets, glass, and reticle in the GLx 2.5-10x44 my buddy snagged on Black Friday Really impressed me.


    Any QUALITY scopes in the ballpark I mentioned? Swinging for a $2000 optic isnít quite in the cards at the moment

    Thanks

    Anything holding you back from the SHV? Seems like that meets your criteria.

    Burris XTR II is probably worth considering.

    Just seeing what else is out there I suppose. I’ll take a look at Burris’ XTR line

    Thanks

    I haven't looked through the SHV, but that reticle looks to be the same thickness (although different layout) as my ATACR 4-16 and I find that very usable, even on a B/C steel at 850. I've heard good things about the SHVs given their price point. Seems like a great option.

    Scope list has some decent sale pricing on Leupold VX-5 and VX-6 models right now. I've always been really impressed by Leuopld's glass and they are good at keeping the weight down, I've just never been a huge fan of their reticles and their elevation can be a bit limited in some models. But worth considering.

    Most likely a 5.56

    With the competing Iím doing, Iíve already figured out the regular PST Iíve got isnít going to cut it for long term use, not for durability reasons but just things it doesnít do that great or at all
