Default Best LR/TACT scope for under $1000

I'm looking to put together a long range rifle. I'm hoping to budget up to a $1000 for glass. Any suggestions?

Go over to the SWFA site and browse. Sightron SIII are sweet. Might even find a Sample List unit and save a few bucks.

So far I'm happy with my Zeiss 6.5-20x50, picked it up for $650 off a demo list...

Mueller will give you the most for the money IMHO.

I have a Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30x50mm with mil-dot, that I REALLY like. I have had alot of different scopes, and normally stick with Leupold but for the money this scope is really hard to beat. It costs right at $1000. It has enough low end power for a hunting scope and enough top end power for anything you might need. Here is a picture of it on my 270.
