You pretty much gotta have 1x or close to it on the bottom end to get your required FOV.  But when they have 1x I don't know of any that have a big enough objective to give you the desired exit pupil at 6x.

Tall order for sure.  http://swfa.com/Swarovski-1-6x24-Z6-Swarovski-Rail-30mm-Riflescope-P7590.aspx

I know the Swarovski Z6i 1.7-10x42 will meet it. That's what's on the .270 barrel. The Zeiss 1.5-6x42 that supertool73 mentioned (and I didn't know about) meet the criteria and is at least a little less $$$ than the Swaro.
 
Did the Kahles Helia CL 2-7x36 have this kind of FOV on 2x and is it still available with an illuminated reticle?
 
Are there any scopes that will do this that aren't north of $2K? I'll go there if I have to - already have once. But if I could find something that would come pretty close for less than $2K, that would be better.

The S&B 1.5-6X42 is an excellent scope, so is the 2.5-10x40 summit.  Used both and each have great field of view and excellent eye relief for the larger calibers.
