Nothing suggested yet will be adequate.
Bushnell Elite 6500 6-24x50 with the g2dmr reticle. Best buy for your dollars
A mil/mil works good,but I prefer a moa/moa scope.All of my Long Range rifles have moa/moa reticles/turrets. It all depends on what the shooter prefers.
tacticalhero,If you really want to shoot anywhere near 1k,you'll need some quality glass along with a scope that has enough elevation/windage adjustment and most scopes under $700-800 won't cut it.
My lower end LR scopes start around $750 and go up to ones in the $2k range. Yes there are guy's that do use cheaper equipment,but they rarely shoot well at distance.
The Sightron SIII or the Vortex Viper PST are what I would consider the lower end of Long Range scopes.After that it would step up to Nightforce and go to the really expensive ones like IOR Valdada,US Optics,Premiere,S&B,March,and a few others. Bushnell isn't even close.
