Blanco is right on track with Meopta, but with a $2K budget, I would suggest jumping up to the ZD series of riflescopes. The glass is truly outstanding. A mildot reticle in this scope will let you dial in your drops using the Strelok Pro app or turn the knobs. This scope comes in at around 1.5 pounds and is loaded from eyepiece to objective with the high quality you expect from Meopta. At around $1300 you will still have $ left over for a case of ammo if you can find it. I have the ZD 6-24x50 on a 6.5 CM and couldn't be happier. So far I have only taken mine to 827 yards. The class is so clear I could watch the vapor trail as the bullet moved across the canyon to impact a 10 inch gong. I have been doing some freelance work with Meopta for just over 2 years now and I am continually impressed with the quality of products they put out. Any Meopta questions, feel free to reach out to me, I am happy to do my best to help you out. Meopta does have an excellent LE/Mil/First Responder program fr those who qualify.

I hunted mule deer in Colorado last year with a vortex lht and it got the job done. Very light weight for a dialing scope.

Vortex Razor AMG is designed for high-end and light weight.

Only hangup is that it's 6-24, but it does have good FOV on the low end for a 6x.

I ended up buying the VX-5HD firedot model. I like it so far and only spent half my max budget. Hopefully a win/win.

Thank you all for all the suggestions.
