Best Scope for $1000

In your opinions what is the best bang for your buck for around 1k. Im going be shooting 100 to about 500 yards. The scope will be going on my savage long range hunter 7mm mag. Friends of mine tell me to get a nightforce but i dont really want to spend 1700 to 2000 on a scope. THanks

    Sightron S-III choose your power. I really like the LRMOA reticle.

    I really like my 10x50x60 SIII and 6x24x50 LRMOA SIII Sightrons. For $1k I don't believe you can find a better scope. My two sons also have a 6x24x50 LRMOA and each took a nice buck this year.

    That's probably the best 1,000 scope on the market new.

    I'd prefer a 30mm Obj but it's hard to find a Mk 4 or even VXII 30mm in the same range used under 1k.

    The next closest would be the Vortex Viper PST.

    Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 or Conquest HD5 5-25x50 would be the best for the money, and will more than handle 500 yards no problem.

    I would recommend a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle Scope

    I have 3 of them and absolutely love them!
