If you are going 1k+ I would probably look at SFP scopes for this purpose. However, be careful as there are SFP reticles that are as thick or thicker than FFP reticles so be sure you watch out for that when choosing a scope.
If you are set on FFP I would look at Vortex Razor's or PST's with the EBR2b reticle. They have fine line thickness and a small open center crosshair which allows for very precise aiming.
The Premier Gen2XR is another very good one. It is offered in a few scope brands as well as their own Heritage and LT series, has a very thin line thickness, .04 MIL for the main reticle but .03 for the center crosshair. Very usable for most applications as that subtends to .1 at 100 yards and 1 inch at 1000 yards.
Nightforce's 3 new reticle designs are all good IMO. Not as thin as the ones above but well designed and usable unless you are shooting paper or competition. But putting bullets in tight groups on big game, steel or rocks, yup plenty doable.
