ok been looking for a new scope for my 6.5x284 

The things i want in a scope are 

- min 3 power 
- light
- repeatable
- under 50mm objective (so in the 40s not 50)
- $1000 us max 
- above 15 power on the max (including 15 power)
- side paralex if any 
- Decant amont of adjustment prob around 70 moa

been looking though some of the posts and you guys seam to know your stuff and being from outside new zealand where i live you might know of some brands that we dont get down here. ow this rifle needs to be a true 0-500 yard rig. thanks in advance

this scope is in the top of the list at the mo there are a couple of things im not sure about, like the small turrets. and am undecided if the no side focus is going to be a problem or not. its hard down here cos none of the shops stock many scopes and mostly low end so i have to buy from pictures wich is a bit average.

when you limit yourself to a 5X ratio you loose a lot of options.  If you could go to a 4x on the low end you could include 4x ratio's that would get your 4-16's that would fit the bill too.
