Good entry level scope for 1000 yards

I am having a 6.5x47 lapua built and I was wondering what a good scope would be to put on it without spending 1800$ on a nightforce. I will probly be shooting out to about 800 to 1000 at the absolute most. Thanks

Clearidge XP5 4.5 x 22. 5 x 50 is an excellent scope for around $530.

Re: Good entry level scope for 1000 yards

I would like to keep it under 7 or $800. Is there any scopes out there at that price with a zero stop?
