Re: cheap scope shooting 1000 yards any ideas

It all depends on if you just want to shoot at a 1000 or adjust your scope and shoot anywhere in between. Also depends on your max budget. I would assume your budget would be in the $200-$400 range if going w an osprey. I would say any of the lower end scopes can shoot 1000yds but I would not try to adjust them for every shot in between. I have a weaver v16 4-16 power that is my fav hunting scope. You may find one used on ebay for $200-400? A old "World Class Plus" Tasco would do a good job also. I cannot vouch for the china scopes. I had one of the NcStar on a 50bmg that shot great but didnt adjust for sh*t.Went through 2-3 of em before I got one that would adjust to site in. Great warranty crappy product.
Just my 2 cents
Here is one of those weavers. I highly recommend. I rolled my 4 wheeler with my weatherby and this scope in the gun rack. Held zero for the last 10yrs and shot 4 bulls and 4 deer with it and a bunch of coyotes. I have since changed to the weaver tactical scope for more magnification.

Get this while it is still on sale. Spend the rest of the money on ammo and practice.

Bushnell Elite 3200 Tactical Rifle Scope 10x 40mm 1/10 Mil Adjustments Mil-Dot Reticle Matte - MidwayUSA

Mil dot and Mil adjustment. I've had great luck with my Bushnell elite products.

You really don't need very much power range. 10x will work very well in most instances.

You might try a Nikon monarch, look for sales, or in the used rack. Used rack is where I found my first one, no ring marks, and I won't be retiring it anytime soon.
