So Im lookin for some new glass for my heavy barrel AR chambered in 223.  20 inch barrel blah blah.  Looking for some specific features.  Thought the subject matter experts around here might have some suggestions ...
10x fixed power
side parralax adjust
Mil dot reticle
.1 mil adjustment
 
I have a 10x42 SS HD on my 308 and love the scope but don't love the rear parrallax adjust.  The side adjust they make is MOA adjustment.   Any suggestions?

Oh, and IOR makes a 10x42 with side focus, but I do not see it on SWFA website.  Perhaps, it is discontinued, but it is a very nice scope.

Leupold has M5 knobs that 0.1mrad, but I do not know if they are available with the 10x40.

You may just have to put up with the S.S.' rear parallax.

Sapper, if you prioritize the list, what could you live without?

The scope you want is available, but not cheap.

What, of your list, could you live without?  If nothing, get ready to drop $1500-$2000.

Your post hits the nail on the head ... Im not ready to drop 2500 on the USO or NF optic that has all these features.  The SS with side Parra is top of the list.  For the Money its great glass.  I have the HD version on my 308 and its Money.  Guess im gonna have to live with MOA or drop 2500 ... was hopeful there was something out there under 1k ... guess im dreaming.  You get what you pay for ... and for the Money SS optics are killer ... back to the well I go
 
Thanks for the input everyone

I thought IOR had something that was mil-based, I'll look into that. 

There's a 4.5-14 AR on the sample list that is a good scope, it was mine.  It is MOA turret, though.
