Re: need advice on setting up rifle for prone 1k

You should look into the Viper Vortex 6.5-20x44. The one scope a lot of bench rest shooter use, is the Weaver T-36. It's a straight power, but target specific.

SWFA SS 20x42 Tactical 30mm Riflescope

Nikon 6-18x40 Buckmaster Riflescope I really like this scope. It allowed me to see groundhogs at 1100yds w/ ease. Tracks really nice also.

    Another option would be to look at the classifieds here and on accurateshooter.com. There are generally some really nice scopes that are used and in good shape for low dollar ($1000-800 for $400-600).
