I recently purchased a GPO (German Precision Optics) V6 1-6 illuminated with the German 4 reticle and am very impressed overall.
Brilliant optics, well manufactured, clear and bright.
It's a 30mm steel tube, so as light as say a 25mm tube alloy scope, if weight is critical.

Leupold can do a German No. 1 from their custom shop.
I had the Leupold Custom Shop install a German #4 on a VX-3 1.75-6x32 and they did an excellent job. The Leupold Custom Shop has been shut down for over a year though-but they say it’s temporary. Quoting Leupold:

“We are in the process of restructuring the Custom Shop in order to refine and improve our services. As a result, we are not accepting any new custom scope or retrofit orders at this time. To keep up to date with the status of the Leupold Custom Shop, please sign up below.”

I have scopes with #4 reticles from Zeiss, Meopta and Leupold. One is an IR #4. Slight differences in the reticle between companies but I like them all.

Looking to find a scope for my 375. I love the German #4 reticle. Probably looking for a 1-6x I think that is probably the best power range for what I'm looking to do. Who out there makes a scope roughly in this power range with the German #4
Leupold. I question the 1-6 however and use a VX6 2-12X on my .375 Ruger.

The Schmidt Bender #4 works really well. My favourite ret for hunting. FFP , Pic isn't the best but it is a great reticle.View attachment 372618
This i know about FFP scopes vs. the much more popular SFP models....IF you have typical aging eye issues and wear reading glasses, in SFP scopes you may not be able to clearly see the reticle (w/o reading glasses)-even after trying to re-focus it. With the FFP scopes, there is no such issue. ;) It typically happens in dim light...Burris Veracity are also FFP-love 'em!

I'm leaning hard towards the trijicon 1-6 with the triangle post reticle. I have a vortex strike eagle 1-6 on there now for practice. I loaded up some 235gr speer bullets with 80gr of CFE223 which should be yielding about 2900fps. It shoots great, I am highly impressed with this new cz 375. It's my first 375 and the recoil is very manageable and it's quite pleasant to shoot and extremely accurate. I could bang the 400yd plate at will with it using that 6x scope. I may set up a scope with a little more magnification for hunting here at home. I have a set of Talley quick detach rings that should arrive today. I believe I'll whitetail hunt with her here in a couple weeks when season comes in. It'll be nice.to get some actual field time with it.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
