Hi guys,

I've jumped on an opportunity to buy a rifle that I've wanted for a long time, the Steyr SSG 69 P1.  I know it's not the end all but it'll do everything I need and them some.  And it being the first purpose built sniper rifle makes it appealing to me too.

I would like a Kahles ZF69 but they seem to be few and far between and I'm not looking to necessarily go original.

What I would like to look into are scopes with 30mm tubes (that's the rings that are coming with my rifle), that have BDC reticles or rangefinding reticles with a BDC turret.  I'm leaning heavily toward a Horus type reticle but am unsure about the quality of the scope that Horus sells.  I like the new offering from Vortex (I've owned a few Vipers) and while the reticle can certainly be used for a hasty holdover, it has no windage component.  I also like the Zeiss reticles but in my price range only come in a 1" tube.  Then there's the Rapid Reticle from Pride Fowler.  I know that SWFA doesn't carry these and I'm not spoiling for a fight but I like the reticle. 

 I'm open to suggestions, even those that may take me away from what I  think I want.  I would like to stay on the low end of the power level, with 10-12x being max.  I'm not afraid of a 6x either but that would be my low limit on a fixed power. 

My  price range is in the $600-$700 area.
